Beauty in the sea­son’s car­ols

Alpine Observer - - News -

UP­PER Kiewa Lions Club’s Car­ols by Can­dle­light last week at­tracted a crowd of al­most 300 to sing the sea­son.

The com­mu­nity car­ols are run an­nu­ally by the club, with the sup­port of the Bright Lions, whose mem­bers sell snow­cones, pop­corn and fairy floss to com­ple­ment drinks, sausages and burg­ers sup­plied by the Up­per Kiewa Lions.

The event was hosted by Nick Brown, and sup­ported by the Mount Beauty and District Com­mu­nity Band led by con­duc­tor Glenn Ra­m­age, Mt Beauty Singers and choirs from the Ta­wonga and the Mt Beauty pri­mary schools.

The night is tra­di­tion­ally one for fam­i­lies and dozens rolled up with blan­kets, pic­nics and es­kies of cham­pagne to cel­e­brate Christ­mas.

Santa ar­rived a lit­tle af­ter 9pm with bags of sweets for the chil­dren.

The event ended with a rous­ing de­liv­ery of ‘We wish you a merry Christ­mas’.

Nick said that he had en­joyed the evening, par­tic­u­larly the con­tri­bu­tion from school stu­dents.

“There were cer­tainly more peo­ple there than there have been in the past few years,” he said.

“It’s al­ways lovely to see the com­mu­nity get­ting to­gether to cel­e­brate and watch the kids run­ning around and hav­ing a great time.”
