We ask only for good quality second hand linen (No holes or bad stains) to be placed in the Collection Box during the work hours of the CRC'c

Manjimup Bluegrass and Old Time Music Weekend.
September 21st -24th, 2018
We are excited to be hosting another Bluegrass and Old Timey Music long weekend.
This year our guest musicians are
Ashlee Watkins, Andrew Small and Jeremy Marcotte.
The New Macedon Rangers ( Ash & Andy) perform a range of traditional dance music from North Carolina and Virginia to mountain ballads and early country songs.

They are winners of many awards including:
