IT'S THAT time of the year again when the Kempsey District Silver Band will present the Kempsey Community Carols.
The event - a highlight of the year for the local community - will be held on Saturday, December 14, at the Kempsey Racecourse. Gates will open at 5pm, and the entertainment will run to 8pm.
Come along and enjoy the carols with the Kempsey District Silver Band, and some special guests.
Bring a picnic blanket or some camp chairs and make yourself comfortable and get ready to sing-along.
Support your community by enjoying a relaxed dinner with food prepared by local community groups.
There will be raffles, rides and activities for the kids and Santa will be coming with bags of goodies for all.
Most importantly, you can sing-along with all the Christmas classics and enjoy the goodwill and fellowship the community carols brings.
Entry is by way of gold coin donation at the door to support the Kempsey District Silver Band.
