Isis Town and Country - - News - Jodie Dixon Jodie.Dixon@isistc­news.com.au

THE ta­bles were set and the pasta was boiled for the first Ital­ian night for the Fire­house pot­ters.

The Ital­ian night re­placed the very pop­u­lar soup night that was the main fundraiser for the pot­tery group.

Event or­gan­iser Mar­i­lyn Mur­ray said she was thrilled with the turnout, they had 70 guests at­tend the evening.

“We had so much food and plenty of dif­fer­ent dishes for all to try, some­thing for ev­ery­one,” Mrs Mur­ray said.

Freshly baked gar­lic bread and parme­san cheese was a side on all plates and washed down with a glass of red wine.

The fa­mil­iar rich Ital­ian aro­mas of toma­toes, gar­lic and onions filled the art stu­dio, with guests flock­ing to the pizza oven and bar.

Mrs Mur­ray said all the dishes had been pre­pared by the club mem­bers and all were very de­li­cious.

“We have had plenty of in­ter­est in our pot­tery and just as much en­cour­age­ment.

“The funds raised from the Ital­ian night event will go to­wards new and more pot­tery sup­plies,” she said.

Childers most pop­u­lar Ital­ian Tina Mam­mino gave her tick of ap­proval to all the dishes.

“I am very happy with the meal and the evening was great,” Mrs Mam­mino said.

The Fire­house pot­ters worked tire­lessly lead­ing up to the event by pro­duc­ing stun­ning plates, bowls and gob­lets for the evening.

Guests chose a gift as a touch­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion for sup­port­ing the pot­tery group.

“It was a fan­tas­tic turnout and I thank ev­ery­one for con­tribut­ing to the event and for at­tend­ing. We con­tinue to grow through the gen­er­ous sup­port of the com­mu­nity.”
