The time for carolling

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
