A hun­dred peo­ple en­joyed com­mu­nity lunch

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

The 2016 Com­mu­nity Christmas Day Lunch was a great suc­cess thanks to in­di­vid­u­als, busi­nesses and many vol­un­teers in the com­mu­nity. Up to 100 peo­ple at­tended the lunch and with the help of 30 vol­un­teers peo­ple were treated to a buf­fet of fresh prawns, glazed ham, turkey rolls, salad, Christmas cake and pud­ding, fruit and soft drinks. The Vol­un­teers set up the hall with Christmas dec­o­ra­tions and spent time wrap­ping many gifts to en­sure all those who at­tended re­ceived a present. Will Cot­ter en­ter­tained the crowd by pro­vid­ing mu­sic and Vol­un­teers as­sisted with the ser­vice and clean up.

This was the ninth Com­mu­nity Christmas Day Lunch Moss­man Sup­port Ser­vices have co­or­di­nated in con­junc­tion with the Vol­un­teer Com­mit­tee who have again done a fab­u­lous job and do­nated many hours to ensuring this event hap­pens for our com­mu­nity. We ap­pre­ci­ate and thank all the in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses in our Shire in­clud­ing the fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion by the Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil. A spe­cial men­tion to the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee who spent many hours prior to and on the day: Anne Lloyd, Peter Lloyd, Chris­tine Price and Mar­garet Quigley. This event would not hap­pen with­out their ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment.
