Cr Darren McCubbin presents St Pauls child worker Christine Morris, Mainly Music volunteer Judy Tulip and Sale Salvation Army captain David Ebsary with the prize for winner of the Sale Christmas Parade.CHRISTMAS won’t be coming to town this year, with Sale’s annual Christmas parade cancelled.
The sound you hear is the hearts of children (and some adults) breaking.
Longford Lions Club said it had regretfully cancelled this year’s Christmas parade and market because of a lack of funding and conflicts of interest of some people on the same day.
Wellington Shire mayor Darren McCubbin said council’s economic development events team had worked with Longford Lions Club in the hope the Christmas parade would go ahead.
“On Thursday council was advised that the Lions Club made the decision to cancel this year’s Christmas parade due to a lack of resources,” Mr McCubbin said.
“Council is disappointed the parade is not going ahead and looks forward to seeing a reinvigorated parade next year.”
But you better not pout and you better not cry, because Santa will still be writing replies to letters.

All letters will be answered.
