Many thanks to all who made the Whaletown Christmas Bazaar a great success, first and foremost to Peggy Kirk, without whom the event would not be possible, and to Mae Sherwood who has honed the kitchen team to perfection over the years.

With the exception of Rick, Rod and Gabriel, everyone else worked in the kitchen.
Ray and Gabriel were responsible for thawing out our frozen pipes. Rick and Rod did an emergency run for paper cups, plates and bowls which Bertha kindly supplied from her Deli stock because with no water we couldn't wash dishes. Rod supplied a space heater & extension cord for the port-a-potty which got transferred to another critical water spot once the water was running and the indoor toilet was available.
Thanks also to those who volunteered to work in the kitchen whose help was not required.
The quality of the crafts and the beauty of the displays was exceptional.
As always it was a great day and a wonderful community party.
