Christmas Tree Festival in Port Augusta

The Port Augusta Christmas Tree Committee is organizing the annual CHRISTMAS TREE FESTIVAL this year at the

INSTITUTE THEATRE ...... COMMERCIAL ROAD

Nov 30th  to  Dec 3rd. Set up Wed Nov 29th

This event has always depended on the participation of individuals

and various groups in our community for its success so we would like to invite your group and/or any individuals to enter something for display.

All entries will be named so this is another way to advertise your club or organization.

 

I am enclosing a poster for you to display, and entry forms (feel free to photocopy more if you need to) to be completed and returned  or phone in your entry (or any enquiries to me).

 

We are asking people to light their trees if they can so we can have a night viewing with carols from 8.30-9.30 p.m. on Thursday 30th and after the Christmas Pageant on Friday evening. This is an option ...don't feel you must add lights if it's a hassle. Also Sunday morning there will be a carols and readings service at 9.00 am.Hoping you will be able to participate,

Yours faithfully,
Fran Paynter.
