WHEN the 2024 Jindabyne Carols in the park happens on Saturday December 16, its founder Sue Sell will be doing her usual thing: playing guitar and singing with her friends on stage, grinning widely at the sight of locals and visitors coming together for a night of al fresco Christmas celebrations - and still marvelling that an acorn of an idea 28 years ago has grown into a such a massive Christmas tree.

Sue, who works as head of music at Snowy Mountains Grammar School, has been making music (and creating and supporting musicians) in the community for more than 40 years.
