Hervey Bay Independent : 29th January 2015
Australia Day celebrations Rain held off for day of fun in sun The Community Help Group’s Australia Day extravaganza in Scarness Park proved to be a popular affair, with thousands of residents turning up for some serious fun on Monday. Local artists, musicians and entertainers turned out in droves to keep the crowds occupied. Meals on Wheels hosted a free breakfast for residents, featuring classic sausage sandwiches. Denis Dack, secretary of the Community Help Group and representative of Meals on Wheels Hervey Bay, said the free breakfast was so popular volunteers ran out of sausages at 11am. “Volunteers had to run down to the shops for more supplies,” he laughed. “We had all the local artists devoting their time to us like John Vea Vea, Chick Simpson, Kaz Sendall, Richard Leek, John Corowa, Brandon Woods and even more. “It was absolutely fantastic, it was extremely hot though!” Denis said the day’s events were supported by the Beach House Hotel. “We’d like to thank the people of Hervey Bay for making Australia Day such as success and for the proper Australian way they celebrated with us,” he said.
