Opera in the Park 🗓

Saturday 24th February, Saxton Oval, Gates open at 5.30pm

The Boathouse Society has been given the opportunity to fundraise via program selling at Opera in the Park.  Support The Boathouse, catch up with members and throw a gold coin (or even better something that folds) in a bucket. Thank you to the city council for this opportunity.
