Palmwoods Memorial Hall event organisers Wendy Southam and Heidi Enderby are expecting a good crowd for the Saturday 24 January "Great Aussie Street Party". Wendy made the call to cancel the annual Christmas On Main Street event due to early rains in late December. Palmwoods Hall committee, "now better known for their advertising skills in promoting fund raising events, and not for weather forecasting" said Heidi jokingly, are hoping for fine weather but prepared for rain with plenty of under cover.
The hall will be packed with stalls and local traders supporting the Aussie theme. The Lane shops are open as usual on Saturday with Renae's Pantry selling Aussie produce from local back yard growers. The Palmwoods florist creations by Tahnee and Gloria are on show until late and the House of Ayurveda has special offers. Palmwoods Hotel has free entry to Aussie country band "Smokin' Crawdads" starting at 8pm for your after-party.
There's competition details for the CWA Country Bake-off on our hall's website said Wendy. Her kitchen packed with cookies and all the Aussie favourites, "my kids are helping to taste test and wash up!"
People are invited to enjoy the village market atmosphere that Palmwoods can create when Little Main Street is closed off. Live music playing throughout the day into night along with rides, games to play with amazingly creative giant "pick-up sticks" and local handicrafts & artisans. The free movie starts at 6.30pm. "How to Train Your Dragon 2".
"We will hold the event regardless!" says Wendy, and with community enthusiasm we will brighten any cloudy sky. Palmwoods Progress Association has plans for Aussie bush tucker, plants and medicines. It is a fun day for all the family says Wendy's Mum, Marjory Murray. See PMH website/facebook for details or phone Wendy 0409765357.
