THE 2022 Home Hill Harvest Festival is off to a positive start with a successful launch of the annual Ephemera display in Lloyd Mann Park in mid-September and more to come throughout October and into the first week of November, as a varied program of events is ready to suit all tastes.
The Canefields Ephemera drew a good crowd to the opening of the event, as attendees took the opportunity to inspect the various exhibits set up throughout the park, ahead of the opening ceremony led by Festival President, Mark Vass and the Co-ordinator of the Ephemera, Uli Liessmann.
While Mr Vass expressed his gratitude to the major sponsors who were supporting this year’s event and told of how the successful Queen entrants each year were coming back to work on the Festival Committee, Mr Liessmann explained the meaning behind the variety of international flags that were prominent through the park.
He said the flags represented the countries that people came from up to 1950 – “the people who made Home Hill”.
Mr Liessmann said more flags would be added next year and if there was any person in the town who felt their country’s flag was left out, he asked them to let him know.
Winning entrants in the 2022 Ephemera were—Overall Winner, Duncan Julyan (Picnic at Hanging Rock); Runner-up, Lou Jezard (Mushrooms); People’s choice winner, Lisa Gianni (“Doing vs Being”).
