The Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival has been held continuously for 61 years. This is a terrific achievement for our town and the small committee of hard working volunteers are to be commended.
A survey was conducted at the conclusion of this years Festival. Feedback such as ‘Why doesn’t the festival have …?’ or ‘How good would it be if …?’ or ‘Why do they keep…?’ was received. There were some wonderful ideas, however, we need more volunteers to help evolve the Festival. Why not consider becoming joint coordinators with a small group of friends? Or how about a community organisation take ownership of a particular event? This is the year to think outside the square and propose new ways of doing things.
On October 16 the Grenfell Henry Lawson Festival AGM will be held. The meeting will commence at 7.30pm in the Community Hub. All positions will be declared vacant and many positions will not be contested by the 2018 coordinator. Events will only run in 2019 if these positions are filled and these positions will only be filled if someone like you steps forward.
If you want Grenfell to have a Festival in 2019 it is imperative that you come to the meeting; join the committee and be involved in making the 62nd Festival a success. Position descriptions are available from firstname.lastname@example.org or 6343 2855.
