Community players ready to rock

Rehearsals are now underway for Canowindra Community Players latest production "Old Talent Time".

Once again the players are asking for community groups to lend a hand with serving of the meals and the kitchen clean up.

Canowindra Community Players organiser Ian Guihot said helping out  is a great way to earn a donation for your group. 

The players will be performing "Old Talent Time” on the following dates July 20, July 21, July 26 and July 27. 

There will also be a special matinee performance held on Sunday, July 22. 

Funds Raised from this years performance will be going to the Country Education Foundation (CEF) Fund.

Foundation member Peter Stacey said Canowindra’s CEF was formed to raise funds for local youth to help them with their transition from high school into further education, training or jobs.

“Independent research shows that for every dollar invested in our work a return of $3.10 is created in social value, changing the lives of young Australians, their families and their communities,” Mr Stacey said.

“Over 90 per cent of our grant recipients go on to complete te course or training for which they are funded.

“By investing in these young people we are investing in their future and in the future of rural and regional Australia.”

“It’s fantastic what some of the kids can do,” he added.

The CEF started in Boorowa, NSW, in 1993, when a group of community members came together to raise funds for students who couldn’t afford post-school training or further education.

By investing in these young people we are investing in their future.

The idea soon spread and the CEF has since grown into a family of more than 40 local education foundations across Australia.
