Local and interstate children got their faces painted and were transformed into superheroes, butterflies and even one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at Euroa’s McHappy Day on Saturday.
Strathbogie Shire Council’s Evolve Youth Committee were on hand at McDonald’s Euroa to face-paint and make balloon animals, help children with colouring in and tell jokes, raising money for Ronald McDonald House charities.
There were a lot of children, big and small, from all over Australia who interacted with the Evolve committee including locals and some from as far away as Queensland.
Evolve’s next community event sees members volunteering at the Euroa Kindergarten Family Fun Day on Melbourne Cup Day (November 3) at the Euroa Memorial Oval.
If there is anyone interested in finding out more about Evolve or joining the committee, please call Inga Weber on 5795-0092.
Meetings are held at 4pm every Monday at the Community Development Office at Strathbogie Shire Council, corner of Bury and Binney Streets, Euroa.
Part of the state government’s Freeza program, Strathbogie Shire Council’s youth committee facilitated two staged areas (music and a BMX/skate and scooter demonstration) at the Euroa Skate Park on Kirkland Avenue.
Malachi Wild, the MC for the day, introduced local talent including emerging artist Arinthia, Evolve Youth member Jared Tilton and special guest and The X Factor contestant Anthony Lucas, who braved the hot weather to belt out some power ballads.
