On Sunday December 23 about 60 people gathered at the Mount Hope Soldiers Memorial Hall to celebrate Christmas.
The children got to see and receive a gift from Father Christmas, played games, undertook craft activities and had wonderfully painted faces thanks to Mikaela Richardson and Hannah Hill.
The annual raffle was drawn with the proceeds going towards the maintenance of the hall. Along with contributions from community members, Regional Express and the Port Lincoln Hotel sponsored the raffle.
A return trip to Adelaide for two from Regional Express, was won by Marie Mahoney while Peter and Christine Meaney won the ocean view room at the Port Lincoln Hotel.
Other community members took home hampers.
