Pomona getting ready for fun in the Park
Pomona is going to finish their 2017 event calendar with a bang on November 23.
A big crowd is expected in Stan Topper Park for the annual Pomona in the Park celebration and the twilight event continues to grow in fun and size.
The event is the biggest fundraiser for the year for the Pomona State School P&C, and draw locals of all ages. Getting underway at 5.30pm, the production will see performances from each of the 14 classes as well as the school concert band, rock band, choir and the winner of Pomona’s Got Talent.
School principal, Alyson Covey says it’s something the students and families of Pomona look forward to every year.
“There will be a lot of great reasons to head to Stan Topper Park on November 23. The major raffle prize to be won will be a two-night accommodation package at Eurong Beach Resort on Fraser Island in a two-bedroom apartment and there will be lots of other great prizes available to win on the night too,” she said.
Tickets are only $2.00 and can be purchased on the night or from Pomona State School administration office in the lead up to the event.
Plenty of food will be available on the night too, with the Cooroy Pomona Lions running their BBQ food stall and the Mr. Whippy and coffee vans will also be on site. Pomona Student Council will be selling show bags at the park on the night with proceeds going towards a new senior playground. The show bags will only be $5.00 with all goods donated by local businesses and only 100 show bags available, so you had better be quick.
Events like Pomona in the Park don’t happen without generous supporters. Apart from the many volunteers who will band together to make the celebration possible, three local businesses are doing their part to support their community. Pomona IGA, Pages Furnishers and the Pomona Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank will be major sponsors on November 23. Pomona Community Bank Branch manager, Geoff Edwards said he knows the event will be a great success.
“Pomona in the Park is another great chance for Pomona to showcase its community spirit. As locals, we know it’s important for the kids, the family and most of all, the school. Our branch is able to support Pomona State School with this event and other projects because locals choose to bank with us. The more Pomona banks with us, the more we can give back. It’s part of why part why locals said they wanted their own bank in the first place. Whilst other banks choose leave the hinterland, we’re here to stay,” Geoff said.
In the lead up to Pomona in the Park, the entire school community will combine to help out in creating what is a massive temporary show ground for the celebration and the Year 6 students will countdown to the fireworks display at the end of the evening.
