Country crooners keep the home fires burning
The South Waikato Country Music Club is putting on a concert to raise funds for a worthy cause.
Club president Les Whyte said the concert will raise funds for the Putaruru volunteer Fire Brigade.
‘‘We will have 20 acts singing great songs from yesterday and today,’’ Mr Whyte said.
The concert has received great support from Putaruru businesses, which have donated prizes for the raffles.
‘‘Last year we put on a similar concert, with proceeds going to our local St John Ambulance.
‘‘This year we decided to raise money for our local fire brigade, because they are volunteers that do a great job for our community,’’ club secretary Barbara Whyte said.
Entry into the concert is free, and there will be over 20 raffles with great prizes.
‘‘All proceeds from the raffles will go to our recipient,’’ Mrs Whyte said.
The club have a busy year ahead of them, with their 40th birthday celebrations also in the mix.
The group are also preparing their birthday bash, which will be held in March.
The club, which boasts 60 members, will hold the fundraising concert at the Plaza Theatre in Putaruru on Sunday, February 3, starting at 1pm.
