Angli­can Fete

A COOL evening but the food was hot, a dry night but there was a va­ri­ety of drinks to be had at the Angli­can Fete.

It is an an­nual event that at­tracts lots of sup­port­ers who ei­ther bake food, bring food or eat food and the pro­ceeds boost the cof­fers.

Cook­ing hot chips or steak on the bar­be­cue is men’s work but on this oc­ca­sion stay­ing close to the flames or the hot fat also helped keep the chill out!

Home-cooked take­aways had the full range of casseroles, meats and rice and were snapped up by those com­ing off work.

Fol­low that with ap­ple crum­ble, pavlova, cus­tard and ice cream and you could have been din­ing like a king!

Many a ham, meat tray or fruit tray was won and col­lected at the whim of the spin­ning wheel, buy your ticket and take your chance!

As al­ways those ex­pert home chefs had been busy in the kitchen and the tres­tle ta­ble was groan­ing with sweet slices, fruit cakes, jams and lots of other good take-a-way food.

There were plants for sale to sat­isfy any gar­dener and even a wide se­lec­tion of books good for the chil­dren or just to while-a-way a lazy af­ter­noon.

Face paint­ing for the chil­dren kept them cheer­ful as they waited for the raf­fle draw­ing and for the child’s bike that was go­ing to be won by some­body.

A rub­bish bin had to be found to hold all the tick­ets but at the end of the draw there was one win­ner and five-year-old Emily Yanco was the lucky one.

The clean-up hap­pened in a flash as ev­ery­one did their bit so that fam­i­lies could wend their way home.

The fete was done and dusted for another year

Show and shine

TIME to get that much-loved and pol­ished ve­hi­cle out of the shed and ready for the an­nual Aut­ofest at the Show­grounds on Septem­ber 16.

Pro­moted by the Ro­tary Club and the Cal­lide Val­ley Auto club this is al­ways a great day out for the cars, for their own­ers and for the peo­ple who wish to view them.

If your favourite toy is up to it there is a gen­tle rally around the district be­fore the start of the main event.

Public en­try from 11am for the Show and Shine and then car sports in the af­ter­noon

Fash­ion pa­rade

THE Saint Vincent de Paul So­ci­ety is hold­ing a Spring Fash­ion Pa­rade at the Cen­tre on Satur­day, Septem­ber 2 from 1pm.

For a $5 dona­tion you will en­joy entertainment by Deb­bie Reid, the Mathew Sis­ters and Wil­liam Lees and our lo­cal mod­els strut­ting the cat­walk in Vin­nies Bou­tique summer fashions.

All money raised goes to es­tab­lish­ing a Bur­sary for the lo­cal schools.

Un­der 5’s day

I SUS­PECT the Un­der 5s can’t read this so I hope Mum will do that for the kids and bring them along to the Biloela Kinder­garten on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 from 9am-11am.

Lots of ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren and their fam­i­lies with games to play and emer­gency ve­hi­cles to in­spect.

En­ter by the An­zac Club carpark makes it safer for all.

Tea and cof­fee for Mums and Dads and it only costs a Gold Coin dona­tion at the door.
