The Cooloola Coast Local Ambulance Committee held its annual Flower Show last month and thanks to the generosity of the attendees, we recorded a bigger profit than last year, which had been a record to date.
There were a lot of beautiful plants, flowers and photography on display as well as stalls selling a variety of crafts, cakes, plants and flower arrangements. The children from the local schools also participated in a colouring-in competition. So thank you 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.
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 provided an extra zing to the proceedings.
The champions in each section were Lyn Call for Floral Work, Joan Ozanne for Roses, Elwyn Slaughter for Cut Flowers, Caroline Taylor for Container Plants with the Juniors prize going to Tabitha Frost. Diana Green was awarded the champions prize for the Open Photography section.
The committee offers our thanks to the ladies from the CWA for their assistance with the morning and afternoon teas and also to the Tin Can Bay Craft Club who have very generously donated $550. All the money raised will be used to support our local ambulance stations at Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach.
