Port Augusta Christmas Pageant
The Rotary Port Augusta Christmas Pageant for 2014 was held on Friday the 5th of December 2014 and once again our local branch were heavily involved.
Branch Manager Sarah Mayhew and her energetic team not only amused pageant onlookers as clowns but also acted as event marshals ensuring all onlookers were safely behind the marked lines before the start of the Pageant.
Spectators arrived well before the 6:00pm start to secure the best vantage point. The event featured floats, walking groups and bands which assisted with the festivities.
During the course of the evening Area Business Development Manager Matt Leonard and Community Co-ordinator Gillian Harvey battled the oppressive heat whilst cooking up sausages and hamburgers for the masses of hungry onlookers. Business houses had kindly supported the efforts of the Beyond Bank team by donating the meat and required goods.
For their huge effort the Port Augusta Beyond Bank team raised $600 which will be donated to the Westside Kindergarten Port Augusta, an excellent outcome, well done to all!
While there were plenty of smiles, the biggest cheers were saved for the arrival of Santa.
