CWA Ag and Chat Morning Tea Launch: The Canowindra CWA branch, in conjunction with the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program and the NSW DPI, will host a morning tea in Canowindra on the 4th of November at the CWA Hall at 10am. This will be the launch of approximately 10 morning teas across the Central West. At the Canowindra morning tea there will be representatives from several different departments who will be asked to give a snap shot of their role and what their service offers. While agriculture will be featured at these morning teas, event organiser Dianne Gill said the main idea was for people to come together and socialise. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact Dianne and RSVP at email@example.com.
Carols by Candlelight Choir Rehearsals Commencing: Choir rehearsals for Carols by Candlelight will commence on Saturday 26th October at 3.30pm in the Canowindra CWA Hall on Blatchford Street.

For more information please contact Christine Sampson on 0405 441 045.
Correction: The Canowindra Phoenix wishes to correct an error from last week’s newspaper. The image that ran with our Canowindra Baroquefest article on the front page should have been captioned with the following: “Makukuhan”, the Indonesian gamelan band that performed at Canowindra Baroquefest in 2018.
Murray Island Dance Performance: Last Friday, students Santi Tapim, Pedro Tapim and Marshall McKay performed two traditional boys dances from Murray Island, which is part of the Torres Strait Island archipelago, as part of Canowindra High School’s NAIDOC Week celebrations. The boys were accompanied by Mrs Suzannah Tapim, and the dances were a great introduction to the Life Choices Presentation that followed. They did an amazing job and their dancing was appreciated and enjoyed by all students and staff.
