Iconic Coast lifestyle cel­e­brated in cal­en­dar

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

THE 1956 Olympic Torch visit to Eu­mundi, the 1969 Caloun­dra Nip­pers team and peo­ple climb­ing Mt Ti­brog­a­r­gan are just some of the iconic im­ages mak­ing an ap­pear­ance in the Play­time: cel­e­brat­ing leisure, sport and recre­ation 2018 cul­tural her­itage cal­en­dar. Mayor Mark Jamieson said the 2018 cul­tural

her­itage cal­en­dar cel­e­brated the re­laxed lifestyle that has been en­joyed by Sun­shine Coast lo­cals and vis­i­tors for decades.

“The cal­en­dar is sure to be a pre­cious keep­sake as it cap­tures the essence of life here on our Sun­shine Coast and our love of the great outdoors,” Cr Jamieson said.

“From the 1930s to the 1980s, the cal­en­dar takes us on a won­der­ful jour­ney through the past in­clud­ing the Miss Ma­roochy boat tak­ing pas­sen­gers on a cruise along Ma­roochy River and the 1966 Ma­roochy­dore Surf Life Sav­ing Club boat crew.

“This year, it show­cases photos drawn from the pri­vate col­lec­tions of five lo­cals – win­ners of the her­itage cal­en­dar photo com­pe­ti­tion – and council’s own Pic­ture Sun­shine Coast col­lec­tion, which can be ac­cessed by the com­mu­nity via our li­braries.

“I would like to thank the com­pe­ti­tion win­ners – Dorothy Robin­son-McKay, Dale Al­sop, Janet Gre­sham, Blair McNa­mara and Ge­of­frey Glanville – for shar­ing their great photos for all the com­mu­nity to en­joy.”
