There were things for sale, such as knitted goods, and things for free during the 50th anniversary celebrations. The children were treated to things like balloons, horse rides, fish pond and face painting.

On Saturday the Town of Cormack celebrated its 50th anniversary with festivities at the community hall. Everyone was invited, admission was free and there were activities for everyone. An afternoon tea was also held at the Heritage Centre with lots of homemade sweets and teabuns served with fresh cows butter. 

Here, Joan White-Oliver, her sister Imelda White-Hopkins and their friend Barbara Dunne took time to chat and enjoy a cup of tea.
