(l-r) Barbara Harch and Alyson Covey are joined by Geoff Edwards and Darryl Edmonds and they're all excited about Pomona in the Park

Circle the date. Pomona is going to finish their 2018 event calendar with a bang on November 29.

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 draws locals of all ages. Getting underway at 5.30pm, the production will see performances from each of the 13 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.

"Make sure you're at Stan Topper Park," Alyson said.

"The mega raffle grand prize to be won will be a two-night accommodation package at Eurong Beach Resort on Fraser Island in a two-bedroom apartment. There's also an accommodation prize at RACV Resort, a joy flight with Paradise Sea Planes and a hamper from Orange Café to be won along with heaps of other great prizes," Alyson 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 ice cream 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, four local businesses are doing their part to support their community. Pomona IGA, Pages Furnishers, Energex and the Pomona Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank will be major sponsors on November 29. Pomona Community Bank Branch's, Geoff Edwards said he knows the event will be a great success again this ear.

"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 continue 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 continue to 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.
