MONASH YOUTH MUSIC FESTIVAL

The Huntingtower P&F team braved a cold, wet start to Saturday August 11 to support the Monash Youth Music Festival (formerly the Waverley Music Eisteddfod). As in years past, this event was well-attended by the Huntingtower community and other schools, which resulted in a terrific outcome for the P&F sausage sizzle. The P&F team were busy serving sausages and sweet treats for the duration and raised $338.35 for the school.

Looking ahead to next year, the Festival will once again be staged in the PAC so we expect an even bigger and better event in 2019. The P&F look forward to setting up shop in front of the MYC and tag-teaming with the Huntingtower Coffee Cart to really maximise the benefit of this featured calendar event.

A note of thanks to Judy Knapp for the MYMF committee for her support and our own Geoff Hardcastle for facilitating setup. Sincere thanks to all P&F members and student help who manned the stall and contributed to a successful day.
