Although BRIGALOW always opens its doors to everyone, COUNTRY ESCAPE has been established as a social outing for those in our community who are less priviliged, their carers and friends. The popularity of these events has been so strong that, after more than ten years of operating
on one Tuesday a month, the program was extended to two Tuesdays a month since 2016.
COUNTRY ESCAPE happens on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from February to November.
All the volunteers have a break in January. In December, Santa visits on the second Tuesday.
The doors are open from 9:30am and clean-up
begins at 1:00pm.
Entertainment with THE COUNTRY ESCAPE BAND begins a little after 10:00am and continues through till 1:00pm. Club
members, and visitors from other clubs, also give of their time to sing with the band.
Thanks to a number of regular Brigalow Country Escape Volunteers, morning tea is served,
lunch is provided and a free raffle draw occurs at every event.
All of this is provided for an entry fee of $5.00 which goes towards the cost of the day.
