This year we will not be having our ever-popular pageant due to the difficulties of staging that event with covid restrictions. We certainly hope next year to be back with the pageant and carols in   Queen Square. Last year’s Carols on the Oval was very successful so we are having it there again with the Kadina Wallaroo Moonta Band accompanying the singing as usual. Covid restrictions also prevent us from having Santa’s Cave in the Town Hall supper room, however, the children will still be able to see Santa at the oval event.

The event will be held under covid regulations – attendees will be required to q code or sign in at the gate and keep to social distancing rules.

The Football Club will cater with steak and sausage sandwiches, hot chips and cool drinks.

 Taste the Yorke will be there with their new-look coffee van and Rock’n Soft Serve will be there with bells on.

Wallaroo Lions Donut Van will be there too.

 This is a free event using funds raised throughout the year by the Show N Shine event.

Progress Association AGM
Moonta Progress Assocation's AGM  will be held in the Town Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday 8th September. This is the time to elect members to the Management Committee.  Two older members reckon the've reached their 'Use by Date' and aren't standing for re-election.  There will be several vacancies to fill and the election is an opportunity to create fresh ideas to match the energy and willingness to work that exists on the committee. The committee meets once a month, when members update what is happening in the many subcommittees, decide what needs doing next and allocates funds / raises funds for projects.  If this sounds like your thing contact current President, Matthew Stock on 0476 517301, or just come to the AGM. Supper will be provided, in a Covid style. We'll need to wear masks etc.
