The Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee held our Flower Show last month after having to cancel the previous year due to Covid restrictions. We were uncertain of the response given the current circumstances but were overwhelmed with the turnout both in terms of the number of attendees as well as the number of plant, flower and photography entries.
The stall holders also responded in magnificent fashion and there was a wonderful variety of crafts, cakes, plants and flower arrangements on sale. Many thanks to all involved.
The children from the local schools took part in a colouring-in competition and it was also very encouraging to see a number of floral and plant entries from the young ones.
During the morning, the crowd was entertained by the Cooloola Coast Ukulele Group and the Coolabay Choir. Both groups performed favourite tunes and songs and contributed to a vibrant, happy atmosphere.
The champions in each section were Lyn Call for Floral Work, T Fear for Roses, Beris Sonter for Cut Flowers, K Horne for Container Plants, with the Juniors prize going to K Sheridan. Cathy Reed was awarded the champions prize for the Open Photography section.
The committee was most appreciative of the assistance provided by the ladies from the CWA with the morning and afternoon teas. We would also like to thank the Tin Can Bay Craft Club and the Tin Can Bay Quilters for their very generous donations.
The show was our most successful to date and a big thank you goes to all those people who took the time to place an entry in the show and who came along on the day to support us.
