Lo­cal event a high­light

Avon Valley Gazette - - OPINION -

IN the two days of at­trac­tions at the fes­ti­val Shire Pres­i­dent Sue Bilich said there was some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“The event is a high­light in the Shire of Kala­munda’s an­nual cal­en­dar, pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to come to­gether and en­joy a week­end of fun and free ac­tiv­i­ties, in a safe and fam­ily-friendly en­vi­ron­ment,” Ms Bilich said.

“Each year we also see many vis­i­tors come along and en­joy some good old-fash­ioned Shire of Kala­munda hos­pi­tal­ity.”

Park­erville res­i­dent Steph Black (25) and her mum Carol will be rais­ing money for the World’s Great­est Shave from their stall.

“We will be sell­ing cup­cakes and bis­cuits on the Satur­day, as well as do­ing face paint­ing, coloured hair sprays and head shaves,” Ms Black said.

The call to “be brave and shave” is the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion’s most im­por­tant fundrais­ing event, pro­vid­ing vi­tal funds to lessen the im­pact of blood can­cer through re­search and free sup­port.
