CHANGE proved to be a winner for this year’s Yanco Lions Club hams carnival.
Held at McCaughey Park for the first time instead of the traditional Waring Park, residents turned out in their droves to drop a dollar or two and try their hand at winning a Christmas ham.
Adding to the festivities this year was having the Yanco Public School P&C on board, selling popcorn, fairy floss, snow cones and doughnuts for those seeking a treat or two.
All money raised from the event goes back to the school, with principal Tarnya Grigg pleased to see the two organisations working together.
“The idea of working together was to build a bigger community event and to encourage more (residents) to come along,” she said.
Students also performed Christmas songs on the night.
“It was a huge crowd,” Mrs Grigg said.
“The Yanco Lions Club continually work tirelessly for the community and, as a school, we wanted to work with them to show community spirit and team work.”
