Song sheets will be published in the preceding edition of the Rotorua Weekender.  Candles and holders will be available at the venue for a gold coin donation, or you can bring your own. Proceeds from the candle sales will be donated to the Rotorua Hospital Chaplaincy Trust.  Bring a chair or a rug, and warm clothing and come early to make sure you get near the action. There will be hot and cold food and coffee vendors on-site or you can bring your own picnic.
