Pick a picket to fund play
LOGAN’S Adventure playground are moving forward with their latest fundraising initiative which will allow families to put their name on the fence pickets that will surround the playground.
The fence pickets that make up the main fence will be for sale and the public can have their family’s name etched into the picket as a reminder of their contribution for years to come.
Quota International of the Whitsunday Coast (QIWC) also lent their support to the playground on the weekend.
QIWC president Aimee Mitchell said the group were happy to make a donation after holding a very successful Great Gatsby wine, cheese and movie night in Proserpine on Saturday.
“We were ecstatic about how much the com- munity supported us and it was great to see so many people turn up in their costumes on the night,” she said.
“Everyone looked fantastic and we want to thank everyone who came along and all the local businesses that supported our event.”
Project co-ordinator Kellie Chart said she encouraged people to come on board and buy a piece of the playground explaining that community support was absolutely paramount to the project getting finished.
“Business sponsorship brochures are out there but we want to give families the chance to be a part of the playground and help raise funds to make the project a reality,” she said.
Pickets sell from $80 and they will be on sale at Cannonvale State School’s fete this Saturday, July 27.
Orders can be taken via the Logan’s Adventure Playground website or via their Facebook page.
