Book it in folks! Fruit Bottling 2017 is on and making the most of a long weekend. Fruit Bottling is our magnificent work party weekend where we create all the jam, pickles, chutneys and preserved fruit that keeps the young people going up in the mountains all year, and lets the staff open bottles of summers' richness in the heart of a mountain winter.

Or, all of the above. You'll also get to meet the 2017 staff team, see all your old favourites like Sally the goat and Tambo-dog and help prepare Woll's pantry for a big year of programs ahead. Get along and bring ya mates! Saturday night will be a special one up at Woll, as we come together as a community to celebrate and thank the 2016 staff team (who will be leaving a few days after Fruit Bottling finshes) and welcome aboard the brand-spanking shiny and new 2017 staff (who started a few days beforehand).

Wollangarra would like to express its heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the Skermer family of Bilyana for putting on 20 years worth of FRL's (Folk Rhythm and Life festival) and for contributing so much to our little community. This year alone, the Wollangarra BBQ at FRL raised $13,500 (!!!) which will go towards ongoing projects and helping get young people into the mountains.

This fundraising has been an incredible gift to Wollangarra over the years and we're not the only ones to benefit (Mittagundi and the local CFA also, to name a few). The recent FRL, held on that first weekend of December, may have been the last FRL, so from all of us, out here in Wollie-land, to Marg, Tony, Bill, Hamish Skermer and Jack Skermer, their respective partners, kids, friends and FRL volunteers, THANK YOU!

Thanks for such amazing fundraising help over the years, for giving space for the staff to have a bit of a boogie, to get the Woll name out there and for creating what is, for many of us in this community, the best music festival going. We hope you've now got your tired feet up and are reflecting on what has been an incredible 20 years of opening up your beautiful property to thousands of people. Cheers!
