Snowfall before the windfall
CHUWAR residents might have thought they were dreaming when it snowed in Mt Crosby Rd this week.
But the machine-generated snowfall was all part of a cheque handover from the Chuwar Baptist Church to the Mayor's Community Fund.
Pastor Jay Beatty handed Mayor Paul Pisasale a $5000 cheque for the emergency fund.
The money was raised from the church's July Street Party event.
Pastor Beatty said the local community was hit hard by January's floods, and the church wanted to reduce the impact of any future events.
Mayor Paul Pisasale said the fund was very important.
"We want to be ready for anything in the future - floods, fires, anything."
