October Market Day 2012 was BRILLIANT!
Sunshine stretching over the long weekend wooed stallholders, locals and visitors from far and wide. Volunteers from Wollombi Progress Association and Laguna Volunteer Bushfire Brigade teamed together, along with a few others to guarantee a highly successful fundraiser. A total of profit of $14,467.91 was raised by our volunteers, which will be used to fund essential local services and community projects. The financial benefits of market day also included a boost to local businesses. Thank you to all those volunteers who assisted in this wonderful outcome.
Butcher, baker, drinks are chilled
Mulla Villa stalls are filled,
BBQ cleaned, tea room and shed
Organising comes to a head.
Mow the paddock, mark the sites
Bake the cakes, made just right,
BBQ hot, billy boiling
Cakes, slices and snags are selling.
Clean up utes and garbage bags
All to be returned are tagged,
Money counted, banking done,
Wrap up meeting, ah, such fun.
It’s over for another year
Money raised will bring much cheer
Paddock of mess is neatly cleared
Recover, ready for next year.
