Each year the fete is a highlight for the Canowindra Moyne Centre, which never fails to bring joy and laughter to the residents, their families and the local community. Their was live entertainment, clothing and food stalls, antique car displays and so much more. This year the Lions Club BBQ, the home baked goods stall and the fresh fruit and vegetable stalls were the biggest hit.
There were around 300 attendees and more than $8,000 was raised. The money will go towards the resident’s leisure and care needs. The residents will choose where this raised money goes and they have their thinking caps on already!
Melissa Delaney, Recreational Activities Officer for Moyne Aged Care Plus Centre said, “The Fete wouldn’t have been a success without the support and generosity of the local community. Thank you to everyone who joined in on the fun and showed their generosity! The residents are so proud of the Fete and what it represents. They really look forward to the Fete each year and they feel so humbled when the local community comes to celebrate their rich lives.”
