Corowa Christ­mas Fes­ti­val

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

“That’s im­por­tant to hear be­cause the econ­omy is tight for a lot of fam­i­lies and it was re­ally per­ti­nent.”

Ms Fred­er­icks said she was grate­ful for the end­less amount of com­mu­nity sup­port and ef­fort from the events and cham­ber team to or­gan­ise this year’s Christ­mas fes­ti­val.

“We must ac­knowl­edge the Busi­ness Cham­ber and Events, Corowa Cur­tains, Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil, Rowena Black – she pulled the con­cert to­gether – and all her won­der­ful mu­si­cal stu­dents, Liz from the Royal Ho­tel brought up the pony rides and bal­loon man all for noth­ing which was se­ri­ously gen­er­ous of her and the Corowa Foot­ball Net­ball Club for lend­ing their ta­bles and chairs.

“All of the lo­cal food providers as well, there were so many of them and all of the mar­ket stalls were great.

“Over­all it was a fab­u­lous ex­pe­ri­ence, a re­ally big team ef­fort and it was a great way to kick off the Christ­mas sea­son.”

The com­mit­tee team has been work­ing and meet­ing to­gether every week for three months to or­gan­ise and make the nec­es­sary phone calls to make the night hap­pen, and Ms Fred­er­icks couldn’t over­state how im­por­tant it was for ev­ery­one to pull their weight.

The con­tri­bu­tions from all lo­cal busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als who had an in­put in this year’s Sanger Street Christ­mas fes­ti­val are no doubt largely thanked by the whole com­mu­nity.
