Fam­ily fun day hits Clermont

Plenty to see and do for kids and par­ents

Central Queensland News - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

ROUND up the whole fam­ily for a day full of fun to kick-start Clermont’s week of fes­tiv­i­ties.

The P&F at St Joseph’s in Clermont de­cided to hold a Fam­ily Fun Day as their main fundrais­ing event for the year.

In the past, the P&F have funded many nec­es­sary re­sources and projects at the school and will con­tinue to do so into the fu­ture.

Food, drinks and ac­tiv­i­ties will be pro­vided for all ages, mak­ing it a fun day out for all.

Nov­elty games for the chil­dren will kick off around 2.30pm, fol­lowed by adult team events and an ironman/iron­woman com­pe­ti­tion.

Along with the at­ten­dance of a num­ber of out­side

mar­ket stalls, there will be a bar, bar­be­cue and cake stall op­er­at­ing.

A range of com­pe­ti­tions will be held with great prizes to be won by ev­ery­one.

Lo­cated at the Clermont sports grounds on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21, P&F pres­i­dent Sarah Cook said the fam­ily friendly day would be un­miss­able for the com­mu­nity.

“We wanted to have an event that in­volved the whole fam­ily in a fun re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment,” Mrs Cook said.

“P&F funds are vi­tal for our school’s fu­ture devel­op­ment and all funds raised at the Fam­ily Fun Day will go to­wards re­sources at the school.”

As some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, the com­mit­tee de­cided to put to­gether a fun video to pro­mote the event.

The Bar­ton Fam­ily of Huntly Drought­mas­ter’s do­nated $1 for ev­ery like and share the video re­ceived on Face­book.

Mrs Cook said the video went vi­ral, and spread a lot quicker than they ex­pected.

“It was a lit­tle bit ex­cit­ing be­cause the video went so much fur­ther than we had ever thought it would,” she said.

“We have a great bunch of par­ents at St Joey’s which made the video lots of fun to put to­gether.”

Make sure you don’t miss this chance to sup­port the lo­cal school while en­joy­ing a great day out. For more in­for­ma­tion, phone the school of­fice on 4983 1535.
