Car­ni­vale thanks

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

spent mil­lions.

On that thought the beach is one of our big­gest sell­ing points.

Clean the sea­weed - you wouldn’t sell your car with­out a clean.

As for busi­ness clo­sures, I have only two points.

Cost - some­one please throw a boot up the arse of the prop­erty own­ers on Macrossan St. Surely get­ting less rent is bet­ter than no rent at all.

Di­ver­sify - in tough times you have to fo­cus on sell­ing what the few who are spend­ing are buy­ing.

Did you know if ev­ery­one in town spent $50 in a re­tail shop on Macrossan St next week, busi­ness own­ers would see a share of $125,000. It’s pretty sim­ple for lo­cals to help out.

Last of all, the Waterfront and La­goon de­bates.

Stop ar­gu­ing like chil­dren and get it built or politi­cians will lose in­ter­est and spend the money else­where.

As al­ways , I love this town. a le­gal obli­ga­tion to al­le­vi­ate its suf­fer­ing and a moral obli­ga­tion to think about your ac­tions.

A bird lives for flight and you sev­ered a wing and broke its legs and drove away.

The wildlife of this area at­tracts peo­ple from the far cor­ners of the globe. If the com­mu­nity wants a healthy lo­cal econ­omy, you need to look af­ter the as­sets. A SPE­CIAL thanks to all who vol­un­teered and do­nated in-kind sup­port to The Car­ni­vale Club 2012.

I would like to thank all of you who went the ex­tra mile to sup­port The Car­ni­vale Club for this year.

I think we have man­aged to make an im­pact and chal­lenged the other more tra­di­tional Car­ni­vale events by pre­sent­ing new, ex­cit­ing and in­no­va­tive con­tent.

We pre­sented cabaret, sports com­edy, en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­grams, lo­cal fash­ion and art, live mu­sic, wine tast­ings, ex­otic foods, stand-up com­edy and more.

Each event chal­lenged us with new hur­dles, and fin­ished with re­sound­ing suc­cesses, with sold out shows night af­ter night, and pre­sen­ta­tion of mas­sive events show­cas­ing won­der­ful tal­ent.

For me it is great to think Car­ni­vale has a venue such as the his­toric Sugar Wharf, which can show­case the di­verse set of tal­ents we have in this small and en­er­getic town.

Be­yond the beau­ti­ful reef, unique rain­for­est and our great food we now have a venue de­signed to re­flect our di­verse cul­ture and show­case the tal­ent that survives within the broader lim­its of this vi­brant com­mu­nity.

I look for­ward to work­ing with you again, it was a true plea­sure.
