Conference organising committee member, Ms Katrina Becker told News Of The Area, “Medowie Christmas Carnival’s foundation has been built on the strength of community engagement and the dedication of volunteers who have pooled their experience and professional skills to deliver an event worthy of our audience.”
“A not-for-profit event on this scale helps build trust and community outreach; connects people and resources, develops new leaders and creates opportunities for cooperative learning experiences.”
“We encourage families and their friends to bring a picnic blanket, relax and enjoy live entertainment and immerse themselves in the festive community spirit as we celebrate the countdown to Christmas.”
Local business sponsorship of this event and the tireless work of the volunteers, started originally by the Williamtown Rotary Club, ensures the Medowie Christmas Carnival is a success each year.
