Do­nate to the May­oral Christ­mas Ap­peal

Mayor of Hawkes­bury, Coun­cil­lor Mary Lyons-Buck­ett of­fi­cially launched the 2017 May­oral Christ­mas Ap­peal on Tues­day, 28 Novem­ber at a spe­cial morn­ing tea hosted by Hawkes­bury Cen­tral Li­brary.

Wind­sor Pub­lic School Boys Per­cus­sion Group and the Mac­quarie Towns Choral So­ci­ety en­ter­tained guests with won­der­ful mu­si­cal pre­sen­ta­tions. Later, younger chil­dren en­joyed Christ­mas themed sto­ries, songs and craft. They were thrilled when Pud­dles, the Read­ing Dragon also made a guest ap­pear­ance at Preschool Story Time.

This is the sixth year that the Mayor is part­ner­ing with the Ro­tary Club of Rich­mond’s Christ­mas Ap­peal.

“Hawkes­bury res­i­dents have ral­lied to­gether to pro­vide hun­dreds and hun­dreds of gifts over the years, to help those who strug­gle at Christ­mas time. A sin­cere thank you to the Ro­tary Club of Rich­mond for all their hard work to make it hap­pen each year,” said the Mayor.

“Thank you to the lo­cal Po­lice and In­spec­tor Garry Sims who are work­ing hard this year to col­lect more presents at the sta­tion for the Ro­tary to dis­trib­ute,” she added.

Con­tri­bu­tions are wel­comed for both chil­dren and adults of all ages. Gift tags will be avail­able at col­lec­tion points or you can add your own.

There are three col­lec­tion points for the May­oral Christ­mas Ap­peal lo­cated at:

• Coun­cil’s Ad­min­is­tra­tion Build­ing, 366 Ge­orge Street Wind­sor

• Wind­sor Cen­tral Li­brary, Deerub­bin Cen­tre (Ground Floor), 300 Ge­orge St, Wind­sor

• Rich­mond Branch Li­brary, 29 West Mar­ket Street, Rich­mond

Presents should be de­liv­ered to the col­lec­tion points by Fri­day, 15 De­cem­ber 2017 to al­low time for them to be dis­trib­uted prior to Christ­mas.
