Sponsored by Port Stephens Shire Council and the Tilligerry Lions Club, the day will start with a barbecue breakfast.
This includes fresh baked Aussie damper and starts at 8am and goes through until noon.
Local bush band ‘Brumby’s Run’ along with the Australian Army Band will be on hand to provide live entertainment until 1pm and there will be amusements for the children.
Tilligerry Auto Club will mount a display of restored vehicles.
Following the fourth Bob Royal fishing competition, our Lions Club have plans in place for future projects which include the ‘care bear’ initiative whereby trauma affected children are given teddy bears by the ambos to comfort them.
They are also preparing to work on their Centennial Park project on Tanilba’s waterfront.
In March they will be running a ‘pink’ day under the umbrella of the Jane McGrath foundation.
