SANTA AT GREENWICH
There is nothing like the gleaming, happy faces of Greenwich children when Santa comes into the wharf at 8.00 am on Christmas Day. Donations for refreshments during Santa's visit went to the Sydney City Mission. Thank you for your support and to all Santa's helpers.

CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT
On 15th December 2003, the annual "Carols by Candlelight" was held at Leemon Reserve. The park was full of the sound of Christmas joy, led by the Greenwich Carollers with a fine "back-up band" of musicians. The children were in particularly fine voice. Our thanks go the host of people involved in making the evening such a success: $1300 was raised for local youth mental health programs.

THE ISABELLE HEIM FUND
Many Greenwich residents enjoyed champagne, croissants, coffee, at a New Years Champagne Breakfast, at La Renaissance in the Rocks, to help this young disabled girl from our community. The event raised more than $4000, and it is planned to be an annual fundraiser . Our thanks go to all who attended, sent donations and helped on the day.
