Can Assist benefits from Parkes Country Music's December Muster

Now we've all settled down after being all shook up from the Elvis Festival it is time to look towards our first Country Music Muster for the year.

It will be held on Sunday, January 19, in the Starlight Lounge at the Parkes Services Club commencing at 1pm.

Guest artist will be Phil Redenback - so make sure you come with your dancing shoes on.

Phil is well known to our members and audience and is very popular performer throughout the region.

As usual, walk-up performers are most welcome.

Our Christmas Charity Muster on December 14 was a great success.

Thanks to a visit from a very special couple "Mr & Mrs Claus" and the generous time of our walk-up artists with the aid of our great backing band, we were able to present Pat Bailey on behalf of Parkes Branch of Can Assist with a cheque for $500 being the proceeds of door takings and competitions on the night.

Our walk up artists included Garry Hemming, Lindy Charlton, Craig Manderson, Bill Murray, Anne Penman, Bruce Toole, Stephen Cheney, Skip Coble and new comer Elisa Massari,

At this stage plans are still well in hand for our South Coast trip leaving early on Saturday morning February 29 and returning Sunday, March 1.

There were still some seats available as this news item was being prepared so you need to contact Marg Thurn 6862 1471 as soon as possible if you want to reserve one of those seats.
