You’ve read it, “Without Trucks Australia stops.” Stand beside the Warrego Highway for long enough, and you’ll be convinced.
With no disrespect to the trucking industry, try substituting “volunteers” for “trucks”. Doesn’t rhyme, but it’s a no brainer.
Could be better phrased of course, but the fact remains that our society can’t do without volunteers.
How ’bout – THREE CHEERS FOR VOLUNTEERS! Think of a better one?
With that in mind, the Marburg and District Residents Association invites all who volunteered to help out with the Black Snake Creek Festival to attend the Volunteers’ Festival Debriefing Meeting on Tuesday evening 21st October at 6:30pm in the Marburg Community Centre.
Pizza and finger food will be provided so no need for a meal before coming to the meeting.
Please RSVP to Kaylene on 0418 750 387 or Greg 0428 328 930.
Our next festival meeting is now MONDAY 29th September, 7.00pm at the community hall.
Excitement is rising – the day is getting closer and last minute hurdles need to be overcome.
Please advise if you are able to assist with any of the following:
Heavy lifting is involved with some of the set up, in particular the artboards and tents and we urgently need extra help!
Tuesday collect art boards and other gear from showgrounds
Wednesday paintings hung
Thursday quilts hung, large tents erected 6.30pm
Friday erect marquees, bunting, signs etc, cleaning and general set up from 8.00am
