LORD MAYORS PICNIC - 31st December 2010

Written by Matt Thompson.

thumb_NYE09_logoWell, it’s that time of year again when information becomes available regarding the Lord Mayor's Picnic. This year we require around 40 people to help make the night run safely and effectively and will also allow everyone to have to time to enjoy the picnic themselves.

Some background about the event:

The picnic was started by the City of Sydney as a way of giving back to the community. Every year families are chosen by welfare agencies so that the families can have a worry free evening at the City of Sydney's expense. thumb_government-house-sydney1Volunteer groups, like NSW Rovers, have been lending a hand since the first event 13 years ago, and it is a fantastic time for all concerned.

You will need to be at Government House on December 31st at 2.30pm. The event finishes once the 9pm fireworks have finished, so this leaves a whole lot of time for you to enjoy your evening whilst still making a huge difference to so many lives.

This is a BRC Uniformed event. This means that the Blue Scout Shirt must be worn along with Beige pants. Members who turn up out of the stipulated previously mentioned uniform will not be admitted into this event.
