THE Yanco Lions Club will prove once again this weekend why it's never to early to get stuck into some Christmas ham.
The club will hold its annual hams carnival on Saturday and will team up with Yanco Public School to ensure a fun night out for all.
Last year the event was moved to McCaughey Park for the first time and organisers have decided that's where it will stay on for 2019.
"This seemed to work really well last year, with the water park able to provide the kids with some extra entertainment," Yanco Lions Club's Sue Ryan said.
"What better way to utilise what we have in Yanco and promote our town."
As well as the chance to win a Christmas ham, Yanco Public will be selling snacks and drinks on the night, with all money raised going back to the school.
"Being able to work together with the school is very meaningful and we did not hesitate when the school approached us," Mrs Ryan said.
"Funds from the ham raffle goes directly back to the school to buy books for the students and these are presented on their presentation night by a member of Yanco Lions Club.
"We are most lucky to live in a such a generous and giving community."
Yanco Lions Club has been hosting the event for many years and it is one residents look forward to as a result.
The event is open to everyone in Yanco and the wider area and will get underway on Saturday from 6pm when the first spin starts.
