Conargo Billabong Market – a lovely way to spend Mother’s Day and to support The Heart Foundation “Go Red for Women”
May 13, 2012
Conargo Billabong Market….on Mother’s Day
Sunday 13 May 2012
Now in its 17th year of showcasing home grown, sewn, made and baked products the 2012 event is sure to be another great opportunity to get some succulent pork, crusty bread, unique presents, or just have a nice day out with Mum.
As is tradition with the event to promote… charities related to mothers (and women in general) this year’s spotlight is on the ‘Go Red For Women’ campaign. The Heart Foundation campaign aims to raise awareness of heart disease in women, which is the number one killer of women in Australia every year. In fact, women are four times more likely to die of heart disease than breast cancer!
In keeping with highlighting this important campaign, Market Day organisers are encouraging patrons to wear red on Mother’s Day when they attend the market. Information on the Heart Foundation’s campaign will be available on the day.
Stallholder applications for this year’s market are arriving thick and fast and entertainment on the day is sure to be another great hit with people of all ages, with plenty of children’s entertainment and music provided by Dr Music and the Elevators.
The Market will begin at 9.30am and conclude at 3.30pm at the Conargo Recreation Reserve.
Further information on the Market can be obtained by calling 5884 6650.
