Follow the flock to fair
ROLL UP tomorrow for all the fun and action of the Shepherd's Fair at Good Shepherd Lutheran College.
Organisers have the entertainment down to a fine art as this major college fundraiser has been happening for almost 20 years.
"Over this time it has gained a significant profile amongst local residents, businesses and the wider community with a combination of rides, games, stalls, raffles, silent auction and much more," school principal Anthony Dyer said.
"There will be something for everyone at this year's fair - no matter the age - it's a great day out for the whole family.
"However, an event like this just would not be possible if it wasn't for a very dedicated group of volunteers from the College's Parents and Friends Association, as well as college parents and staff."
Mr Dyer said as well as the dollars raised, its great value is the wonderful sense of community an event like this creates.
"All the funds raised going directly to providing additional facilities and resources for our students," says Mr Dyer.
The Shepherd's Fair also relies heavily on the support of local businesses who donate goods.
"This year the College has been overwhelmed by sponsorship support and this really demonstrates the commitment of the local business community to support the younger generation," Mr Dyer said.
"Even in these difficult economic times we have managed to gain the support of businesses and I think that is a testament to the strength of Noosa's community spirit and the value it places on its young people," Mr Dyer.
The Shepherd's Fair is open from 10am to 4pm and entry is free.
