WHAT’S WITH ALL THE LONG LET­TERS LATELY?

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

What hap­pened to the size limit pre­vi­ously im­posed on writ­ers of let­ters? The same as ap­plies to Cairns Post would be good – say max­i­mum of 200 words. Then oth­ers would get a go.

Re­cently we’ve seen let­ters tak­ing up the whole page.

On a dif­fer­ent topic, the Aged Care fa­cil­ity at Moss­man has pro­gressed to the fenc­ing of the site stage and judg­ing by the three years it has taken to get this far since the 2015 an­nounce­ment to start build­ing, the com­pleted fa­cil­ity should be ready by 2000 and . . . twenty? thirty? forty?

Moss­man re­quires the jobs this may cre­ate.

Bob Pol­lock, Moss­man

THE Un­der 11s Moss­man Ju­nior Rugby League team (the kids, par­ents and vol­un­teers) who will travel to Townsville in July to play in the Lau­rie Spina Shield would like to thank our busi­ness com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing this team. Our ac­cep­tance to the 72-team car­ni­val was last-minute so we had to move quickly. Mas­sive thanks to our ma­jor spon­sors Moss­man’s Post Of­fice Ho­tel, Moss­man Bowls Club, Moss­man Cus­tom Kitchen, Raine and Horne Real Es­tate, and Body Be­yond Be­lief for their gen­eros­ity, and be­lief we could get there! Our ma­jor fundrais­ing event, Bo­gan Bingo, was a fun and en­ter­tain­ing night and I’d fur­ther like to thank our com­mu­nity for get­ting in­volved. Prizes and auc­tion items proudly do­nated by Moon­glow Port Dou­glas, Junc­tion Cafe, Whimsy Beads, Yalanji Arts – Moss­man Gorge, Grotti Lotti, Har­risons Restau­rant, The Beauty Room, Sport­spower was much ap­pre­ci­ated. Also credit to Moss­man Bowls Club, Prices Plus, Dain­tree Fresh Farms, Moss­man Butcher­ing Co and the Moss­man Golf Club for sup­port­ing the night with goods and ser­vices. The gen­eros­ity and en­ter­tain­ment value of Bingo Master “00” Dave (Evans) along with gear pro­vided by Nicky G made the event a huge suc­cess. Thanks Moss­man Butcher­ing Com­pany who have helped us out with nu­mer­ous meat trays to raf­fle over the past few weeks. Thanks Moss­man and Port Dou­glas – ev­ery­one who bought raf­fle tick­ets, auc­tion items and at­tended events, vol­un­teered their time and ef­fort. We are head­ing off to this car­ni­val feel­ing the love and sup­port of a whole com­mu­nity.
