The Canowindra Christmas Day Luncheon 2013 was a great success with approximately 60 people attending. Everyone enjoyed the food, atmosphere, venue and most of all meeting new people and others renewing old friendships.
This was the second year of this fantastic community gathering and plans for Christmas 2014 are already underway. Many thanks to all the Community Groups, organizations and individuals for their valuable contributions, without their involvement the goals of this event would not have been obtained.
To all the volunteers who operated behind the scenes, thank you for your participation and willingness to support our local community. Special thanks to Maddie and Charlotte Cooper who provided their vocals and musical skills which was greatly appreciated by all attendees.
It was again proven just how generous our local community is, with many local businesses giving generously on the day. Canowindra Food Basket, Uniting, Anglican and Catholic Churches, St. Vincent de Paul, Moyne Eventide Nursing Home, Canowindra Depression Anxiety Awareness Group, Canowindra Health Centre, Canowindra Pre-School, St. Edward’s and Canowindra Public Schools, CWA, The Men’s Shed, Canowindra Lion’s Club and the Canowindra Bowling Club for the fantastic venue. Most of all thank you to the guests who shared Christmas Day Lunch with us. It was through your attendance that made the day a special community gathering.
Everyone’s contributions have proven the Christmas and Community Spirit is strong and active in Canowindra. On behalf of the Canowindra Christmas Day Luncheon Committee please accept this as our personal
