We are selling a BBQ lunch with Rotary at the Commercial Hotel, 74 Walker Street, Casino this Sunday 16th. The beer garden is a nice relaxing venue to listen to the live music and enjoy a tasty BBQ lunch. The Channon Beaumont Trio will be playing the Blues.
We have been busy attending the Markets in our area. We are selling raffle tickets and books and sharing the news of this new way that the Australian Government is allowing Humanitarian Refugees to settle into our regions. The positive responses from citizens has been overwhelming. We do however need a market roster. We need at least 2 people present at the stall especially for set up and pull down. Please offer to help out. If you have books that you would like to donate bring them along on the 22nd.
