The Lions Club of Toowoomba has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Toowoomba’s Christmas Wonderland.
With consideration of current restrictions on large-scale events and ongoing public concerns surrounding COVID-19 the Club has postponed the physical event until 2021.
This cancellation will have a major impact on major beneficiaries of the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation, Toowoomba Hospice and Lifeline Darling Downs and South West Queensland, so if you are able please donate to these organisations who continue to do wonderful things for our community, especially at Christmas.
St David’s Presbyterian Woman’s Association located at 46 Mary Street, North Toowoomba, regret that they have to cancel their Carnival of Flowers, 'St David’s on Display' function on Saturday, 26th September due to COVID-19.
They hope that the event will be able to go ahead in 2021.
Householder’s Options to Protect the Environment or HOPE for short, and St Urshula’s College are proud to announce that they are co-hosting a Youth Summit on 24th April 2021 as part of National Youth Week activities.
Year 10 to 12 students in the Toowoomba region are invited to participate by getting involved in providing input on issues of interest and concern regarding the environment and submitting a foolscap size photovoice item for display at the summit.
