WANDONG COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS CAROLS

The WHJCG and Wandong District Church staged another successful Wandong Christmas carols on Sunday 15th December. We thank the Wallan and District Community Bank for its ongoing support of the event. We also thank the Wandong Wallan Lions and Wandong CFA for their support and to all our choirs and Mitchell Shire Concert Band for making the night such a success. The combined WHJCG and Wandong History Group Christmas toys raffle was drawn with winners Clyde Riley of Heathcote Junction, Sharon of the Wallan Chicken Shop and Pam also of Wallan.

AUSTRALIA DAY BREAKFAST 2020

The community came together on Australia Day 2020 for a hot breakfast commencing 8am at the community centre Davern Reserve followed by local Australia Day presentations at 9am. Local awards were presented to very deserving recipients Jim Chatz, Ruth Laurens and Ken Bausch.

Congratulations to you all. Thank you to the Wandong Wallan Lions Club members who assist us at this event each year and a big thank you to our Australia Day breakfast sponsors, the Wallan and District Community Bank.

We also congratulate Mitchell Shires citizen of the year winner, John Perrett, a long time supporter of the WHJCG and now a very important member of the Kilmore Mens Shed. Well done John.

PUBLIC TOILET

Mitchell Shire has budgeted (2019/2020) to add a second public toilet at the Wandong Bushfire / War Memorial Park. This toilet is the most used in Mitchell Shire and we hope the second toilet will be delivered soon.
