Deniliquin local Linda Clarke celebrated her 40th birthday with a party at the Salvation Army Hall on Saturday night.
About 50 people attended the special occasion.
Helping make the event just that little bit special were her two best friends Jeanette McTaggart coming from Canberra and Fiona Bolger coming from Longwarry.
Linda surprised guests with a pinata and a range of goodies such as a tea bags and glow sticks.
Amongst the fun was a quiz about the birthday girl, a delicious cake made by Cavil Crampton and food supplied by the Salvation Army.
