We are all going a little bit crazy here. But that’s Christmas isn’t it? What started out as a small start-up project has “grown like Topsy” and we have a ton of great things happening in Collins Place (our local town square) every Friday night in December leading up to Christmas Day. It will culminate it Carols by Candlelight on the 23rd, including the announcement of the “Let’s Light Up Clunes” Christmas Lights Competition.
We all blame Lana our Co-ordinator, of course. When Lana gets involved, things get a little crazy (in a good way). The “queen of things organisational” has us putting up lights and tinsel, gathering branches, building Christmas trees out of recycled wood, making amazing artwork, organising special entertainers and events. I can’t wait to see what our chalkboard artist has come up with for his special “just-for-Clunes” design.
And of course our annual Open House Christmas Dinner is full steam ahead, with a sumptuous feast already planned to get our mouths watering! With Brett handling the decorations side of things, you just know the tables are going to be a beautiful sight.
But the best thing about it all? The way the community comes together – none of this would be happening without all the amazing volunteers who cheerfully give so much of their time and effort to make it happen. Thanks everyone!
