Week of December 14th
Our weekly meeting was the last of 2020. Much of the evening was spent scrunching up Monster Raffle tickets in preparation for the draw on NYE. Hundreds of tickets were sold in Coolamon, Ganmain and the surrounding areas, which will allow us to make generous donations to the Coolamon-Ganmain Hospital and Allawah Lodge. We’ll be selling raffle tickets for another week or so, and the draw will take place at the Coolamon Sport & Rec Club on NYE. Kudos to the raffle committee, especially Brian, Grahame and Albert for their exceptional work organising the prizes and selling the bulk of the tickets. We had hoped to hold the draw at the NYE festival in Coolamon, but unfortumately, the festival was cancelled because of COVID. A fine session and weekly raffle rounded out the evening.
CRC Christmas Party
We held our Christmas party at the Coolamon Sport & Rec Club on Saturday, December 19th. We were treated to a fabulous meal featuring lamb roasted on the barbie, similar to other roasts that John G had done over the years:
We had a great roll-up of members on the evening. We’re hopeful for a return to more “normal” times in 2021, despite the recent flare-up in COVID numbers in the northern beaches area of Sydney. Best wishes to all for a joyous Christmas season and a healthful and prosperous new year.
