Yeoval Rallies Till it Rains!

With the financial support of St Vincent de Paul, Cabonne Council, Dubbo Red Cross and the Yeoval Progress Association along with the driving force of Yeoval Central School’s Well-being Coordinator Mrs Helen Tremain, another Successful “Rally Till it Rains” function was held in Yeoval on Friday evening the 15th of December.

With tables and chairs set up in the Buckinbah Park, a sit-down buffet meal was provided for 240 residents. The Yeoval Baptist Church singers entertained for the full evening with Christmas Carols and we can proudly say that the two course three meat and delightful salads were all prepared and served by the small band of the Banjo Paterson … more than a Poet volunteers and all made and prepared in the efficient and very well appointed kitchen at the exhibit.

These Community organized functions are designed to bring the community together and keep spirits high through this drought period. With an opening concert presentation by the local Yeoval based Cherokee Dance Troupe and the continual operation throughout the evening of showman Glenn Brown’s Jumping Castle – all ages were well entertained and very well fed with hot meats and fresh fancy salads.

The highlight of the salads was the pumpkin, rocket leaf and walnut creation with many copies of the recipe being printed on the night and also forwarded on during the following week. The evening weather was perfect for such a park function and congratulations to all who participated. Interesting to note that since the “Rally till it Rains” gatherings started two months ago over seven inches of rain have been recorded on some properties in the district.

Sharon’s famous Devonshire teas with scones freshly baked on the premises are a delight anytime along with a range of healthy light luncheons. Everybody is welcomed to drop in anytime enjoy the fare and learn a little more of our famous storyteller Banjo Paterson. Photo:- .Jo Blatch
