Fun at the Coun­try Fair

Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

ALL the fun of the fair was never truer for the 600 plus res­i­dents of Euroa and be­yond who at­tended the Euroa Health Coun­try Fair at Seven Creeks Es­tate last Satur­day.

Stalls in­clud­ing, food, plants, hand crafts, beer, wine and cheese to name a few all re­ported a brisk trade but the real ac­tion be­longed to the chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties, with train rides, gum­boot throw­ing, felt­ing, face paint­ing and many other ac­tiv­i­ties.

The gar­dens were in all their glory fol­low­ing re­cent rains and were im­pec­ca­bly pre­sented by Ross and Rachel Car­ring­ton.

Euroa Health’s board chair­man Jim Perry said the day was a com­plete suc­cess and it is pleas­ing to raise much needed funds.

While the tally is not yet fi­nalised the day should pro­vide in­come in the or­der of $11,000.

These funds will be added to the com­mu­nity fundrais­ing ap­peal for the new aged care fa­cil­ity Gran­iteHill, which is now ap­proach­ing $400,000.

Jim Perry stated that Euroa Health con­sid­ers the over­whelm­ing sup­port of the many in­di­vid­u­als and com­mu­nity groups to be the true mea­sure of suc­cess for the day, our heart­felt thanks to you all. See more pho­tos on page 10.

FASH­ION­ABLE FAM­ILY: Lisa Mooney and daugh­ter Alice took part in the fash­ion pa­rade through the gar­dens.

NEARLY GOT IT: Matilda Gaffney, com­plete with face-paint from one of the stalls, has a go at the ap­ple on a string.

FUN AND GAMES: There were plenty of ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids at the Coun­try Fair, in­clud­ing try­ing to eat the ‘ap­ple on a string’… which proved no mean feat.
