The time for carolling
WITH Christmas just around the corner, carols are in full swing around the shire.
Violet Town Lions Carols by Candlelight hosted their successful night of music last Friday night, with the Euroa Citizen's Band, 36 Degrees South Choir and Euroa's Jamie Jacobs providing some entertainment.
The weather held out with everyone getting involved and jamming out to some wonderful Christmas tunes.
Community members were treated to a Lions barbecue on the Community Complex lawn and a visit from the big man in red himself.
Chairs and blankets were in abundance and candles were held high.
With Violet Town's night of carols now sung and gone, Euroa will be sharing in the fun this Friday night, with their "Carols by Candlelight 2018."
The event will be hosted by the Euroa Citizen’s Band and will begin at 7.30pm.
The venue will be the Seven Creeks Park, near Burton’s Bridge, and if there is poor weather the alternative venue will be the Euroa Shire Hall in Bury Street.
Band members are delighted that the event is being supported by the Strathbogie Shire this year.
The program will feature the Strathbogie Singers, led by Di Mackrell and local guitarist, Gabe Chowanetz, will also be appearing with singer Alannah Caldera.
Her soulful vocals accompanied by Gabe’s rhythmic guitar work make for a dynamic performance.
The Balmattum Belles (Cathy Allen, Gerry Mawson and Marg Chowanetz) are supporting the event too, which will be anchored by the inimitable Gayle Mawson as MC.
The whole event cannot happen without the sound and lighting skills of Gary Chowanetz or the Euroa Lions Club, who will provide a free BBQ, with a visit from Santa also on the cards.
The venue will be the Seven Creeks Park, near Burton’s Bridge. If it’s raining the alternative venue will be the Euroa Shire Hall in Bury Street.
IN CHARGE: Chris Day will again conduct the Euroa Citizen’s Band.
