Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action.
The Lioness Club of Tin Can Bay are holding an event on March 8, 2014 to celebrate local women and their successes, with the sponsorship of Rainbow Beach Cooloola Coast Community News.
Some groups select their own International Women’s Day theme, specific to their local context.
Jill Press, Secretary of the Lioness Club of Tin Can Bay announced, “Our theme for the day is ‘Women in the Defence Forces’. With the proximity of Camp Kerr and Tin Can Bay’s wonderful relationship with the Army, we wish to honour women who have served in the past together with current personnel, but also to honour the women of the Cooloola Coast community.”
“On the day, we are hoping to have the history of Camp Kerr and memorabilia on display.”
“We will be inviting members on the Tin Can Bay community that have served in the past, with our Lady Mayoress – Mrs Dulcie Dyne joining us on the day, due to her service history and are hoping the Army will join us with current personnel in uniform.”
The event will be held at the RSL – Tin Can Bay Sub Branch, with a morning tea, guest speakers and buffet lunch. For further information please contact Jill on 5486 2843 or email: email@example.com
