CHRISTMAS IN OUR COMMUNITY
Christmas Food and Toy Drive
The 2019 Food and Toy Drive is over for another year. We were overwhelmed and thankful for the generosity of our community who again have donated food and toy items, which were distributed to families and community members in time for Christmas. Community Junction Inc. would like to thank St Clair Shopping Centre and St Clair Public School for partnering with us again this year as well as local community members who donated to the drive.
Colyton Carols 2019 was a spectacular Christmas event hosted by Team Colyton and Community Junction on 7th December 2019. Kevin Dwyer Park Colyton was once again the home of the annual event which was attended by over 800 people who came along to sing, dance, and celebrate the festive season with their local community. Colyton Carols is a major event in the Colyton community and is successful due to massive collaboration with local businesses, churches, schools and other organisations. We would like to thank all those who made Colyton Carols 2019 such a massive success and we look forward to doing it all again in 2020.
North St Marys Christmas Event
Santa arrived giving children a big smile during our North St Marys Christmas Event. Over 200 residents joined us at North St Marys Neighbourhood Centre for this free event. Families enjoyed free popcorn, slushies, jumping castle and having their face painted. During the event a Christmas card could be made or a letter could be written to Santa just to make the afternoon extra special. Thank you to Jo Greenwood from CTET for providing our lucky door prizes to our community, it is greatly appreciated.
