The Rotary Club of Berwick held their annual 'Carols by Candlelight' event on Saturday 21st December at the Edwin Flack Reserve.
The preceding day had provided temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius, so it was with some relief that Saturday produced an acceptable sunny 24 degrees, although occasional chilling gusts of wind were experienced.
The program included the Berwick College Vocal Ensemble, Casey Choir and Bethany Fisher, as well as solo singers Dhee and Lucinda Da Silva.
The children particularly enjoyed Bethany Fisher's performance and of course, the arrival of Santa Claus and Mrs Claus in a CFA fire truck.
An estimated crowd of around 4,000 enjoyed the evening's entertainment, which culminated in a spectacular fireworks display.
Many thanks to all those who contributed to the success of the event, including members of the Rotary Club of Berwick, Casey- Cardinia Rotaract, Inner Wheel Club of Berwick, Rotary Club of Narre Warren and our own exchange student Andrea.
