Flaxwood Festival 2013  —  $59,963.34

Again the Flaxton Homestead was the venue, and the Festival's Patron Dame Adrienne Stewart, took time out from her busy day to present cheques to the 2013 Festival's beneficiaries.  The total proceeds ($59,963.34) once again exceeded the total ($56,890.05) which was raised last year, and a total of three charities were supported.  The Order of St John received $37,871.56, The Woolston Brass Band received 15,779.82, and The One-2-One Charitable Trust $6,311.96.  Carolyn and John wish to thank Dame Adrienne most sincerely for her support, and also to acknowledge and thank everyone who contributed to this year's Festival.  Planning for the 2014 Festival is now well under way, with The Festival scheduled for late February.
