Easter fete helps to bring home the bacon

Alpine Observer - - News -

EASTER Sun­day saw huge crowds de­scend on the Mt Beauty Ceno­taph gar­dens for the Mt Beauty Hospital/Kiewa Val­ley House fete, which raised nearly $3500 to be shared be­tween the hospital and the aged care fa­cil­ity.

Or­gan­iser Bar­bara Tal­bot said that she was im­pressed at the level of com­mu­nity spirit, which was ‘just like the old days.’

“Dr Zagorski did a stun­ning job at the spin­ning wheel,” she said.

“The most pop­u­lar item on the prize list was a live pig, do­nated by Alan McDon­ald and won by a lo­cal man, who was very ex­cited.”

Over 14 stalls, mostly run by lo­cals, in­clud­ing the Mt Beauty Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre, the U3A and the Red Cross, of­fered a huge range of wares, and the Mt Beauty CFA proved a big at­trac­tion, es­pe­cially to the Easter vis­i­tors.

Other at­trac­tions were a per­for­mance by the lo­cal line dancers, and busk­ing by Tal­lon & Mil­lie Smith and six ju­nior mem­bers of the Shut­tle­worth fam­ily, who do­nated all their tak­ings back to the hospital.
