JINDABYNE will celebrate the relocation of the Town Centre's 50th anniversary on December 19 and planning is well underway to fine tuning proceedings.

A public meeting will be held next Monday night (September 8) at Jindabyne Bowling Club at 6pm in conjunction with a chamber of commerce meeting for everyone who is interested to become involved and help out on the day.

Participants are also being sought for the parade through the town on the day and anyone interested in organising other events on the same weekend or the weeks either side of the 19th should contact the chamber.

When the Snowy River was dammed in 1964 the town of Jindabyne had to be relocated and it was a huge day for the town as they crossed the bridge for the last time. This December the town has the chance to make it an even bigger occasion but it will take the whole town to come together, join forces and make it memorable.

Everyone is urged to attend next Monday night to hear the plans and offer their assistance.
