The Harden Kite Festival committee has held its first meeting for 2024, with great community attendance, including the local public school and Aboriginal group (Harden AECG).

Committee President Lucy T from Junee has urged community members to attend next month’s Annual General Meeting on Monday, April 22 from 5:30 pm at 54 Neil Street Harden and to consider volunteering for a management role and volunteering for the main event, or those smaller tasks that need doing in the leadup.

“I have moved to Junee since December and this year I am expecting a baby in July 2024,” Lucy said.

“I am stepping down as president so we need to find more committee members to fill my husband and my spaces.

“I am helping out and planning the kite festival as much as I can this year, but after July my priorities will be with my family.”

Each year, visitors to the festival are asked to complete a visitation survey that analyses where improvements could be made.

These surveys have found that on average, the Harden Kite Festival welcomes around 4000 people each year.

If you have any time to volunteer to organise one of the major events on the Hilltops calendar, drop into the AGM on April 22 or contact the organising committee.
