Amaz­ing woman helps kids

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

Ap­prox­i­mately 400 peo­ple filled the hall to sup­port chil­dren of all shoe sizes, per­form their own lit­tle piece of won­der­ful.

She is amaz­ing and we are all truly proud of the women she has be­come.

Therein lies the true wealth of our shire; gen­er­a­tions of chil­dren with smiles of un­re­served pride in them­selves;
