WILLAURA - The entire Willaura community will come together to celebrate the end of harvest at the annual Willaura Harvest Cutout.
The Cutout will be held from 6pm this Friday February 7 at the Willaura Recreation Reserve.
The low cost family night includes a barbecue meal provided courtesy of the Willaura Kindergarten Parents' Committee and free entertainment.
There will be plenty of activities to entertain kids of all ages and even adults will have lots of fun too.
After their popularity last year the Greater Hamilton Archery Club will be back. Members will demonstrate archery techniques, and also let the public have a go themselves. This will be a great opportunity for community members to try something a little different, and perhaps even discover an interest and aptitude they never realised they had.
Talented district band 'The Shed Dwellers' will entertain the crowd this year. Those who saw glimpses of them on ABC TV's 'Exhumed' will no doubt enjoy the opportunity of seeing them live.
Health information will be provided by East Grampians Health Service, and their popular competitions will again be run.
Children with any excess energy will love the jumping castle and the exercise will be terrific for them. New to the Cutout this year will be 'Belly Bumpers', and the young at heart are bound to enjoy them.
The Cutout will hopefully be a night where everyone can relax and chat with friends, get to know others, listen to the music, learn more about their health, or simply sit back and take it all in.
For farmers in particular, whose harvest roles keep them away long hours from family and friends, it will be an opportunity to catch up with news, compare harvest experiences and unwind after a stressful few months.
For partners too it is an opportunity to attend a family event where children are happy, the catering is taken care of and they too can relax.
Young people are encouraged to attend and will have an opportunity to meet up with old friends prior to their return to distant jobs and study.
Volunteers from the Willaura Community Development Group and the Willaura and District Kindergarten Parents have been working for months to ensure the 2014 Cutout will be a success. They are confident that with the valued support of their many sponsors, and the enthusiasm of the Willaura community, the evening will be enjoyed by all.
