Women’s Day Lunch

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - REAL ESTATE - Moya Stevens

THE An­nual In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day Lun­cheon was held at Salsa Bar and Grill in Port Dou­glas on Fri­day and again it was a packed house.

This event is the main fundraising ac­tiv­ity for the Port Dou­glas Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre and fea­tured two guest speak­ers, Kylie Sam­son and Sara Har­ris.

Kylie spoke of her years in real es­tate and her re­al­i­sa­tion of her true pas­sion, be­ing a Per­sonal Trainer.

Sara gave an en­gag­ing ac­count of her life from Texas to Greece and then her set­tling in Far North Queens­land as the Youth Ser­vices Co­or­di­na­tor for the Moss­man Youth Cen­tre.

The guests were en­ter­tained by mem­bers of the up­com­ing Dou­glas The­atre Arts Group’s April pro­duc­tion of The Sound of Mu­sic.

Four mem­bers of the ‘Nonnberg Abbey’ per­formed a med­ley of songs in­clud­ing “Climb Ev­ery Moun­tain” and “How do you solve a prob­lem like Maria?”

The door prize and nu­mer­ous raf­fle prizes were do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses.

A let­ter from the new man­ager of the Port Dou­glas Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre, Mac McCul­lough, was read out, in which he ex­pressed ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the fundraising ac­tiv­ity and high­lighted many of the cen­tre’s suc­cesses and plans.

The Port Dou­glas Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre, a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, pro­vides a range of ser­vices in­clud­ing fam­ily, fi­nan­cial and cri­sis sup­port, hosts sev­eral vis­it­ing ser­vices and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

The Nik Nak shed sells a va­ri­ety of sec­ond hand goods and cloth­ing. The many lo­cal vol­un­teers who help run the var­i­ous ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties of the Cen­tre were ac­knowl­edged and thanked.
