2012 Wood Days - Cancer in Kids @ RCH - CIKA

The 2012 Old Time Wood days took place in Milltown during the weekend of 10 and 11 November.

This year's event, which raised $27,471.05, was the subject of an article in the Warrnambool Standard for Monday November 12. Read the article by clicking here.

It was preceded by the installation of much improved facilites as described here Christine and Andrew Duyvestyn: "It is with great pleasure that we can inform patrons of the “Old Time Wood Days” that we now have a toilet block and septic tank installed to save the need for transporting portable toilets each year.

"Thanks must go to Mailors Flat Concrete Products for supplying the septic tank, Finchetts Plumbing for supplying septic pipes and fittings, 2 Blues Timber and Plumbing for water fittings, Peter Drendel Plumbing and Reece Malseed for the plumbing work, and Dean Dark Excavator and Bobcats for digging the hole.

"Also thanks to the hard work of Chris Fazio and Chris, Peta, Matt, Cam and Mykala Thomas we now have some lovely benches for the ladies to work from.

"Without the generosity of all the above people this project would not have been possible and we do appreciate their help."

Wood Days would not be the same without the children. Here are three of them.

There is not much than can be written about this year's event that has not been written before. It was as successful as ever, with great food and country hospitality for more than five hundred guests. Over $25,000 was raised for CIKA by Andrew, Christine and their dedicated team of hardworking and enthusiastic helpers. Click here to read more about these wonderful people.

And finally, mention was made during the promotion of the 2012 event that a group of genereous supporters had supplied and installed new toilet facilities for the comfort and convenience (sic) of patrons. Here are their promotional stickers.
