The Lodge Canowindra - Xmas in July Progressive Dinner went off like a bang last Saturday night. On a clear starlit night, 70 revellers partook of champagne and nibbles at the Lodge, baked ham, roast turkey and all the trimmings at the CWA Hall, and Christmas puddings in the Community Centre.
The event was a sell out, the food was fabulous, and the organisers have been overwhelmed since by the positive feedback from the locals, who want to see it become an annual event.
The event was supported by Canowindra businesses who we would like to particularly thank: Canowindra Country Bakery, Canowindra CWA, Canowindra Newsagency, Canowindra Services Club, Canowindra Trading Post, Federation Fotos, Gardner’s Ground Wines, Hamilton’s Bluff Wines, Lawrence’s IGA, The Canowindra News and The Canowindra Phoenix.
Specific thanks are due to Jemima Starr (who volunteered to tend bar at each venue) and to the CWA team who volunteered to prepare, cook and clean up.
The contribution by the CWA ladies certainly helped to make the event the success it was, and we looked forward to teaming with them again in either CWA or Lodge sponsored events. A total of $2000 was raised for the Canowindra Fitness track.
