Celtic News May 2019

It’s all over for another year. The Australian Celtic Festival weekend is inspiring, celebratory, entertaining, educational and exhausting! Congratulations to everybody who worked so hard to make it a reality.

We finally got some rain which might have put a dampener on the whole thing, but somebody must have got the message about “don’t rain on my parade” and the rain stopped three minutes before kick-off on Saturday morning!

It always takes a while to get all the photos in to show you all. I have a couple to add into this month’s edition but you can look forward to the photo edition in June.

Celtic News April 2019

With less than a month to go until the Celtic Festival things are hotting up here in Glen Innes. Actually, that is only figuratively speaking. Right on cue, the evenings have turned quite cool in our normal autumn weather pattern. The days are stunningly beautiful, with high, clear blue skies and warm sunshine. Now, if we could just have a little rain………………

There is a special offer from the Australian Standing Stones Management Board, to celebrate the year of Scotland. You can read more about that later in the Newsletter.

Celtic News March 2019

Lots to tell you this month, so I won’t waffle on – just get straight to it.

Chopper the Ram went up for auction at the Community Support Concert which was held March 2nd at Glen Innes Services Club. Chopper won Reserve Champion White Suffolk at the Glen Innes Show and was donated by Dugald and Bec McIndoe to the Community Support Concert Auction. Chopper raised $2700 for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter. The final figure raised during the Community Support Concert was $17,711. Isn’t that fantastic?
