The 25th season of Ovens and Murray Netball and also the Corowa Rutherglen Netball Club was celebrated on Easter Saturday at the home game against Albury.
The day was well supported and was a great excuse for friends and teammates to get together and reminisce.
It was also good to share afternoon tea with past and current players as well as members of the Albury Netball Club and long-time supporters of the Roos netball.
The board would like to thank all those that travelled long distances to be a part of a memorable day.
To top off the day, Casandra Hughes was awarded a Life Membership for the Corowa Rutherglen Football Netball Club.
