Fun at the Country Fair
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.
