The Lions Club of Nagambie and District has organised the annual Carols by Candlelight for Nagambie for the past 13 years and this year promises that there will be a new format.
The Lions are taking the carols back to Buckley Park where they first began and they will be assisted by Nagambie Fire Brigade members in spreading the Christmas spirit.
Instead of Friday night, the Carols will be held on Saturday night, December 9, at Buckley Park.
The CFA free sausage sizzle will be on the menu for families to enjoy from 5pm to 7pm, plus a jumping castle, face painting, colouring competition, Sumo men, craft and a photo both for families to enjoy. The Lions will sell drinks for a small cost and Lions Christmas cakes will be available.
The Lions are asking for gold coin donations towards the evening’s event and program booklets, and battery operated candles will be available. A small cost for children to utilise the amusements will be kept to a minimum per child.
The carols will start at 7.30pm.
The Anglican Church’s Father Gary Atherton will be performing a puppet play during the evening, and the evergreen carols and Christmas songs will resound across the lake. The jolly bloke in red should make an appearance on the Nagambie fire truck about 8pm.
One raffle will be drawn on the night, and the other one on Christmas Eve.
Funds raised by the Lions go towards local groups in the town, so your support of the carols is being sought, and in this way you will be supporting local groups too.
Bring along your chair and rug, family members or friends and enjoy the carol singing.
