Swiss Yodlers Picnic at Castle Hill 2023

August 6 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Our Annual Family Picnic over time has become one of – if not THE – highlight(s) in the Swiss Australian Community Calendar, bringing together many families, friends and rare, even first-time visitors from near and far. Flyer Here!

Whereas previously, we were honoured to welcome “some special guests” (we remember e.g. the visit of a member of the Swiss Federal Council (Bundesraetin) in Plumpton, and more recently, The Swiss Army (together with the Australian Navy) Bands.

This year we have the honour of welcoming the Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis, head of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs. Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis will be at the Castle Hill showground for a few hours. it is planned that he will give a short speech, but that he also wants to get in touch with the people.

2022 would have to stand out for the high number of loyal followers, friends, “fans” and new faces, who turned up to enjoy a perfect winter’s day after the cancellation of 2 previously planned 1 August celebrations. The preceding gusty winds on Saturday and rainy periods in the weeks leading up to “our Big Day” gave way to pleasant sunshine, warming our hearts and minds. The seemingly unending stream of people queuing up for food and drinks (also amusement rides for the children) kept our helpers on their feet all day long.

It is with gratitude that we wish to thank all those who assisted with the work and many tasks leading up to and on the day  …. we call them “Our Willing Hands” , and in this place – for fear of not forgetting anyone, as important as they all are for whatever help they assist with, – we wish to say ‘A BIG THANK YOU” including committee, fellow yodellers, their spouses, partners and friends they “invite” to assist with helping.

Thank you also to our numerous sponsors and donors (listed on this Website), the proceeds will allow the Club to participate at the Swiss Eidg. Jodlerfest in Zug in June 2023 (an event to be held in Basel was cancelled twice due to the Covid outbreak). We also say Thank You to the members of The Swiss Australian Community and their friends for being part of this great day.
