Luna Mar­kets this Fri­day night

The Observer - - PULSE -

FOR the sec­ond year run­ning, Bororen State School P&C will be hold­ing their Luna Mar­kets.

Jessie Bar­rett, P&C com­mit­tee mem­ber, said she is ex­pect­ing a cou­ple of hun­dred peo­ple to at­tend.

“I’d like them to have a good time,” she said. “(It will) have that nice com­mu­nity feel.”

De­spite the small size of the town­ship, (Bororen has a pop­u­la­tion of about 400) and the small size of the school, at 38 stu­dents, the mar­kets will boast 30 dif­fer­ent stalls.

The stalls will fea­ture ev­ery­thing from home-made soap and chil­dren’s cloth­ing to pre-loved trea­sures, plants and baked goods.

The P&C will put on a de­li­cious hot feast of roast pork and roast beef meals in­clud­ing dessert and a bar.

There’ll be an es­presso cof­fee van, an ice cream stall, raf­fles, face paint­ing and a jump­ing cas­tle.

This year the P&C has or­gan­ised a sideshow al­ley and show bags.

The event en­ter­tain­ment will fea­ture lo­cal group, The Pa­tons: hus­band and wife, Wayne and Lyn Pa­ton and their son Woody.

Wayne says they’ll be play­ing a mix of mu­sic on the night, with him­self and Lyn both on vo­cals and gui­tar.

“We’ll do a bit of Elvis, Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Slim Dusty, we’re fairly well across the board with it,” he said.

The Pa­tons do­nate their tal­ents to many events.

“When it stops be­ing fun we’ll stop do­ing it,” Wayne said.

The P&C will use the funds raised to help with school ex­cur­sions, in­clud­ing a bus to take the stu­dents into Glad­stone for swim­ming lessons.

The Bororen P&C’s next event will be a so­cial golf day on Oc­to­ber 29 at Miriam Vale Golf Course.
