Details: Redbank Garrison has supported this event for many years. It is held each each to honour the life of Jessie Schroder. When Jessie was suffering from cancer, she wanted a party in the park for all the kids. The community and local businesses got behind it and they held a huge party for her in late November 2008. Sadly Jessie passed away in January 2009, aged 6. Each year  the local community celebrate's Jessie's birthday with a big party in the park. 

The party is held on an open park, so the facilities are whatever we bring with us. We brought a 3x3 marquee, hub tent for changing, table and chairs, flags and a cam net backdrop. The weather was bright and clear, and warm by the afternoon.

As usual there is a great community vibe at this event. The volunteers do an amazing job and they are always keen to support each other. I think the families pick up on that, and there's a sense of respect and gratitude you don't always see at commercial events.

As usual the MCs gave the Redback Garrison a big mention in the closing remarks, saying the event wouldn't be the same without us.  

Jessie’s mum and family were in attendance yesterday and while it’s always an emotional day for them, to see the community come out in force and help remember Jessie for the sunshine in their lives that she was really warms their heart.

Thanks troopers and thanks Kelz and Lydia for wrangling and photos.
