Christmas Day Lunch: Ninety five people attended the 2019 Christmas Day Lunch. Thank you must go to everyone for attending, supporting and volunteering on the day, setting up and cleaning up. It is through all these people that makes this community event the success that it is. A special thank you to the Canowindra Bowling Club for providing the venue. The Christmas spirit is alive in the Canowindra community and the Christmas Day Lunch Committee would like to say thank you.
