Countdown to Glasshouse Country Community Carols
  • Monday 08 December 2014

Make sure you bring a rug, a chair and your best singing voice when you head to the Beerwah Sports Ground for the Glasshouse Country Community Carols from 5pm on Saturday, December 13.

Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski said the momentum is building with just over a week before the Glasshouse Country Community Carols on December 13.

“Council is very proud to support this significant regional Christmas event,” Cr Baberowski said.

”The program looks fantastic and includes a range of local talent including Cassi Hilbers, Angus Woodhead, Rhiannon Lindsay, the Superdads and of course a fireworks finale sure to impress.

“This popular event is an important addition to the Festive Season calendar.”

Pastor Rod Jobe from Church on the Rise said carols have been organized in the Glasshouse area for over 10 years with Church on the Rise initially holding them in Landsborough.

“In 2010 we were moved to the Beerwah Sportsground which is a more central and bigger venue,” Pastor Jobe said.

“Over the past few years we have come under a united banner of local churches and community organizations.

“The Council funding now enables us to run a free family event that has grown in popularity over the years.

“People come because they love the atmosphere of the evening and the fireworks are a brilliant climax to the evening."

Council is a major partner in bringing five regional community carol events to residents and visitors across the region - Carols at Cotton Tree, Carols on Kings Beach, Nambour Community Carols, Glasshouse Country Carols and Coolum Christmas in the Park.
