Christmas is on the way!

christmas-ballsChristmas parties have started – this year you can add a gala dinner as an option for your get together. Remember to shop local and support our locals.

Make sure you set these dates aside for the much loved Carols by Night. If you have a Christmas or New Year event please let us know by November 18 for the December edition.

Backing singers wanted in Rainbow Beach

The annual Rainbow Beach Community Carols will be held on Sunday, December 4 from 6-8pm at the Community Centre, commencing with a free sausage sizzle at 5pm.

Santa will be in attendance and available for photos between 5 and 6pm, with face painting by Daisy and a candle making workshop for people wishing to make their own beeswax candles to use on the night. There will be a small charge for the candles and soft drinks will also be on sale.

Music will include items by the Rainbow Beach School choir and local artists. Come along and enjoy a wonderful evening under the stars with family and friends, singing all the traditional carols that we know and love.

There will also be a visit by a very special family. Make sure that you bring along a rug or chair and maybe a torch just in case it is windy!

We are looking for people who can hold a tune to sing in the backing choir – call Chappy Ronnie on 0413 135 867.
