Past Mareeba Rotary President Lenore Wyatt is encouraging locals to get behind their new #averyMa- reebaRotaryChrist- mas online event.

ALTHOUGH the annual ‘Carols by Candlelight’ event was cancelled, Mareeba Rotary is still encouraging locals to get into the Christmas spirit and get involved in their new Christmas community event. 

After the cancellation of the Carols, Mareeba Rotary had to find a way to keep that Christmas cheer and spirit alive in Mareeba. 

They chose to launch a new concept, the #averyMareebaRotaryChristmas which invites locals to send in photos or videos of them getting dressed in their Christmas jumpers or dressing their Christmas tree, if it’s festive they want to see it. 

Past Mareeba Rotary president Lenore Wyatt is encouraging people to get into the festive spirit and send in their Christmas photos and videos. 

“If you have an photos or video footage getting ready for Christmas send it in, whether it be dressing the tree or wearing matching jumpers,” she said. 

 “We are just trying to get some community support and Christmas spirit. 

“We’re spreading the Christmas cheer the best way we know how with the current circumstances.” 

To take part in the new event, use the hashtag #averyMareebRotaryChristmaswhen posting on Facebook and you will go in the draw to win 250, 150 or 50 dollars cash for the first, second and third place prizes and will feature in a special Rotary Christmas video. 

 Submissions close on Monday, December 7
