Former LRB guitarist at dinner

Two Decades of Chaplaincy: Liz Spicer, Kyabram P-12 College Chaplain.

Little River Band bassist George McArdle will be the guest speaker at Kyabram P-12 College’s Chaplaincy Program 21st Anniversary celebrations on Friday, September 2.

The Chaplaincy Dinner, to be held at the Kyabram Bocce Club from 6:30 p.m., is an annual event to thank those who support the Chaplaincy – and its main fundraiser.

While Mr. McArdle will be a great asset, the event continues a strong tradition of community involvement in the program, which is managed by Korus Connect.

Mr McArdle was the original bass played for Little River Band, the ARIA Hall of Fame rock band that formed in 1975.

Chaplaincy support group chairman Rev. David Lloyd said chaplaincy has a rich tradition in Kyabram.

Always on Music: George McArdle will be the guest speaker at the Kyabram Chaplaincy fundraising dinner on Friday, September 2.

“We can’t wait to celebrate our 21st birthday in style, and having George sing and perform will be fantastic,” Mr Lloyd said.

“I love how the local community has supported the chaplaincy over the years, and our dinner is an opportunity to thank them. Chaplaincy offers a unique dimension to the schools wellness program, and in our post-COVID era, the need for a chaplain is even greater.

The dinner is the major fundraiser of the year where supporters have the opportunity to help fund chaplaincy work at the college.

There is no cost for the night, which includes a good meal; however, many people use the dinner to offer financial support.

Twenty-one years ago, a committee was formed to place a chaplain in Kyabram High School. The current chaplain, Liz Spicer, has served as chaplain for most of this time.
