Club President, Max Noble, had a vision to do more for the less privileged in our community. That vision led to Country Escape.
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 in late 2016.
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.
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.
