the Carols Community Collection was very successful
and as for the main event.....spectacular!" Mr Smith said.
Mark Tempany from Stageshow Coordinator Stormfront Productions said
"the people have spoken by turning out in such a huge number."

The Hair to Help Wig Library is now $1000 better off after a
donation from the Carols In The Park Event Committee.
The committee - made up of members from the
Whyalla, & Mount Laura LIONS Clubs
raised the sum after a successful event last year.
The Wig Library is run by volunteer group Pink Spirits and provides
wigs to those who have lost their hair due to medical conditions such as cancer.
Whyalla Lions Club secretary Eira Yarwood said donations were
also provided to Riley Nixon, Emily Ernesti & St John Ambulance.
“It is fabulous to make this donation. That is what the Lions club is here for -
raising money for our community” she said.
Ms Yarwood also thanked Stormfront Productions
for their help with Carols in the Park.
Wig Library volunteer Raelene Williams said the donation would
be used to keep the group running at full strength.
“There are always ongoing costs so we are very, very grateful to
receive anything at all,” she said.
"A thousand dollars is amazing so we thank LIONS very much.”
Volunteer Marie Woodford said running the
Wig Library was a "very rewarding job".
“The smile on the girls’ faces is pretty amazing to see - it is
very emotional to do it. There have been quite a few tears” she said.
