What’s bear’s name?

Chil­dren in­vited to name new Flour­ish mas­cot

Isis Town and Country - - News -

HE’S cute, he’s cud­dly and he’s the mas­cot of the Flour­ish Fam­ily Fun Day.

The only prob­lem is, he’s yet to be named!

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil com­mu­nity and cul­tural ser­vices port­fo­lio spokes­woman Judy Peters in­tro­duced the friendly bear to the com­mu­nity and called on lo­cals to help name the “new face of Flour­ish”.

“We need a name for our new mas­cot and who bet­ter to name him than the young peo­ple that this event is de­signed for,” Cr Peters said.

Cr Peters said the new mas­cot per­fectly em­bod­ied what Flour­ish Fam­ily Fun Day was about.

“Flour­ish is an op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies to spend some qual­ity time to­gether and have a lit­tle bit of fun,” Cr Peters said.

“It is about cel­e­brat­ing the im­por­tance of the fam­ily unit while con­nect­ing par­ents and guardians with es­sen­tial ser­vices and prod­ucts avail­able within our re­gion.

“This mas­cot will act as the bridge which con­nects fam­i­lies to th­ese ser­vices, which they may oth­er­wise be unaware of.

“Dur­ing the event, young peo­ple will have the op­por­tu­nity to put their sug­ges­tions for­ward as part of a mas­cot nam­ing ac­tiv­ity.”

Di­vi­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tive Peter Heuser en­cour­aged fam­i­lies to at­tend the Flour­ish Fam­ily Fun Day on Mon­day, June 27.

“This event is about pro­mot­ing an in­clu­sive com­mu­nity, which is a rel­e­vant mes­sage all year round, not just on this one day,” Cr Heuser said.

“Come along to beau­ti­ful Bore­ham Park and take ad­van­tage of this ter­rific com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity and the ac­tiv­i­ties and stalls on of­fer through the Flour­ish Fam­ily Fun Day.”

Flour­ish will be held from 9am to noon on Mon­day, June 27, and ev­ery­one is welcome.
