THANK YOU Westland Shopping Centre....
Our CITP Promo Sign went up in the
Foodcourt today, featuring many entries from
this year's Kids Colouring-In Contest.
WINNER to be announced in Civic Park on Sunday night!
Our "Carols Comunity Choir" have gone through their paces
at our final rehearsal, with performance and
excitement levels absolutely maxed out!
This years Choir ranges in age from 4 to adult,
and now all that's left to do is to
rock out in Civic Park in 4 nights time!
Members of our Carols Community Choir have volunteered their time for our annual "donated performance" for a local community organisation.
In the past beneficiaries have included Whyalla Aged Care facilities -
but in 2014 our choir decided to stage a concert in advance of their Civic Park date on 14th December for the Whyalla Special Education Centre.
A wonderful evening -
showcasing all that is good about Whyalla -
was had by all!
Our Choir was warmly welcomed by students and families of WSEC -
and on a beautifully mild outback night only the halftime flock of Galahs wheeling overhead could have added any more magic to a very Special occasion.

Thanks to Whyalla Sea Rescue our 2014 APEX Christmas Pageant entry has starred as it sailed through town with Carols Community Choir members aboard.
Everyone had a fun-filled afternoon, and what a fantastic way to promote "Carols In The Park" while supporting another great Whyalla Christmas tradition.
Thank you WSR for your support -
we look forward to sailing with you again in 2015!
Our 2014 "Carols Community Choir" have kicked off final preparations towards December 14th, and what a practise it was!
Already our CCC team look and sound awesome - and the excitement will only build as their Civic Park date gets closer and closer....

LIONS Arrium Onesteel "Carols In The Park" is proud to announce our 2014 event will see dynamic kids group the Boomstars join another fantastic community Christmas celebration in Civic Park.
2014 LIONS Event Committee Chairman Stephen Pearce said the Boomstars would make their "Carols" debut on 14th December along with an all-star Whyalla cast - including the wonderful "Carols Community Choir".
Mr Pearce said the event's annual invitation to Father Christmas had also been extended - early this year due to Santa's ever-growing commitments each December.
"He's never let us down yet - but it is a long way to Whyalla from the North Pole so we hope Santa can again find time for us here in the Outback!" Mr Pearce said.

LIONS Arrium Onesteel "Carols In The Park" is proud to announce recipients of our 2013 event's Community Collection - taken at Interval during each year's show.
2013 LIONS Event Committee Chairman Allan Smith said the event had a wonderful history and commitment to giving money back to the Whyalla community.
"Carols In The Park" 2013 has donated:
* $1000 to Whyalla Men's Shed
* $1000 to Whyalla Pink Spirits
* $1000 to St John Ambulance (Whyalla)
Mr Smith said each of the three organisations were vital for the safety of the community - and all three recipients were very grateful for their donations.
Whyalla St John Ambulance Officer In Charge Of Administration Kelly Young said funds would be spent on offering more training and equipment, for the unit.
Whyalla Men's Shed President Kevin Dalziel said their money would be used to purchase machinery, computers and provide computer tuition to Seniors who were interested.
Whyalla Pink Spirits President Raelene Williams said she was amazed by the donation which would go a long way towards her group's continued operation.
