Festival in jeopardy
Recently, the Rhythm n Rail Festival Association called an urgent Executive Meeting over concerns with resources, in particular volunteers, to deliver the 2018 Festival.
The meeting raised the question “Does the Junee Community really want the Rhythm N Rail Festival?”.
The Association currently consists of less people than the small number, which with a lot of determination and hard work delivered the 2017 Festival.
Although the last festival was a success and the team, attractions and organisations that make a big effort to contribute remain committed, additional support from the community has not been forthcoming.
The small team is stretched to capacity and without additional people, will not be able to complete the preparations required to hold the next festival.
An open public meeting for the Rhythm n Rail Festival Association will be held at 6pm on Wednesday, November 8 at the Ex Services Club.
The Executive Committee hope that anyone who is keen to see the Festival continue will come along and join the team.
The attendance and response at the meeting will determine if the 2018 Festival will go ahead and if so, which events will need to be cut from the program.
