October 2 Ambulance Flower show on this year

by Cheryl Zunic, Treasurer, Email –

The Local Ambulance Committee was unable to hold its annual Flower Show last year due to Covid restrictions. As the situation appears to be easing, we are making plans to run the show on Saturday October 2, at the Tin Can Bay Community Centre.

We wanted to give all our exhibitors some advance notice so you can begin to prepare your flowers, plants and photographs for the competition. There will be more details re entry forms, opening time, etc., closer to the date of the show.

The public support for the show is much appreciated as all proceeds go towards helping our Cooloola Coast Ambulance Service.

There will be stalls, raffles and plants for sale, as well as morning and afternoon teas. So please make a note of the date and come along to spend a very pleasant few hours among all the garden lovers and keen photographers in our community.

Just a reminder that our other major fundraiser for the Ambulance Service is the weekly bingo sessions held on Thursdays at the Tin Can Bay Country Club, commencing at 9.30am. A fun morning is guaranteed.
