CHRIST­MAS JOY

Euroa Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - By GLENDA MILLER

MANY xx gath­ered to en­joy the Vi­o­let Town Lions Carols by Can­dle­light this year, with the Euroa Ci­ti­zen’s Band putting on a real show. They will be per­form­ing again this Fri­day night at Euroa’s Carols by Can­dle­light. Pic­tured are band mem­bers (back, from left) Gary Whyte, Gil­lian Allen, Janet Street, Lor­raine Threlfall, John Dunn, John Horder, Col­lier McCracken, Rus­sel Cooper, Chris Day; (front, from left) He­len Bar­ton , Jean Duff, San­dra Fin­lay, Lyn Cooper, Barb Trainor, Richard Speedy, Karen Dunn; (kneel­ing) Chris­tine Welsh.

EUROA Gar­den Club held its Christ­mas breakup at the Euroa Golf Club on De­cem­ber 7, with pres­i­dent Chris­tine John wel­com­ing 61 mem­bers and their guests to the fun filled fes­tive event.

Big thanks go out to Lyn Smith and her helpers who put be­fore us a de­li­cious Christ­mas din­ner and to the com­mit­tee mem­bers who dec­o­rated and ar­ranged the ta­bles, which were colour­ful and in the fes­tive theme.

Monthly com­pe­ti­tion win­ners through­out the year re­ceive points and by years end, these points are tal­lied re­sult­ing in Coral Cox win­ning with fifty points and sec­ond was Chris­tine John with 38 points.

A raf­fle was held on the night and all pro­ceeds gen­er­ated from the sale of tick­ets, will be passed on to Ivan Lis­ter.

Ivan has been tire­lessly work­ing rais­ing money for the last six­teen years for farm­ers with men­tal health prob­lems.

This is a wor­thy cause as our farm­ers have been do­ing it tough for quite a while now and this puts a strain on them men­tally.

Euroa Tim­ber Co. are to be thanked for sup­ply­ing all the raf­fle prises for the evening, through their gen­eros­ity a very suc­cess­ful amount was raised.

Deb­bie El­lis per­forms a very funny skit each year and this year she in­tro­duced her­self as Vi­vian, (Santa’s Mis­tress).

That’s when the fun started, hav­ing mem­bers in stitches of laugh­ter as only Deb­bie can.

What a sight to be­hold, the char­ac­ter Vi­vian I might add wasn’t on her best be­hav­iour and Santa would have been red faced.

Wayne, (Deb­bie’s hus­band) copped it from Vi­vian and his face turned the same colour as her bright red cos­tume.

This was a lot of fun and mem­bers can’t wait to see what you get up to and who you will be next year.

“Kris Kringle” was part of the night and Mem­bers en­joyed the sur­prise that comes with open­ing a present.

Greg Dud­ley pro­vided the mu­sic for the evening, var­i­ous types of songs and of course Christ­mas Carols.

Mem­bers joined in singing to­gether with Greg, all in all a great time was had.

“Happy Christ­mas and safe New Year” to ev­ery­one, see you at the next meet­ing on the Fe­bru­ary 15 at Anita Kubeil’s gar­den, But­ter Fac­tory Lane Euroa.

CHRIST­MAS GET TO­GETHER: Mem­bers gath­ered to en­joy a won­der­ful meal and cel­e­bra­tion of the year that was. Pic­tured are (back row, from left) Iain Tow­ers, Ge­off Vin­cent, Pat Allen, Al­lana Tow­ers; (front, from left) Jan Vin­cent , Betty Parow and Denice Can.

A GIG­GLING CHRIST­MAS: All at­ten­dees were treated to a spe­cial hu­mor­ous per­for­mance from pop­u­lar town iden­tity Deb El­lis, who left the crowd in stitches. Deb is pic­tured with Mick Dixey.
