New shirts for am­bas­sadors

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY AND BUSINESS -

THEY’RE feel­ing fresh in brand spank­ing new shirts, thanks to the Air­lie Beach Cham­ber of Com­merce.

Ear­lier this year the vol­un­teer cruise ship am­bas­sadors put the call out, hop­ing to get stronger com­mu­nity sup­port, and they got just that.

The blue back­drop of the shirts is an iconic look for the vol­un­teers, so when it came to a re­vamp, “a freshen up” was all that was re­quired.

The Air­lie Beach Cham­ber of Com­merce sup­plied 40 shirts, and act­ing pres­i­dent Mark Beale was de­lighted to present th­ese to the vol­un­teers on Mon­day morn­ing at the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.

“We are al­ways happy to sup­port such a com­mu­ni­ty­minded ini­tia­tive,” he said.

Am­bas­sador Brian Richard­son said it was this kind of com­mu­nity sup­port that made the job eas­ier.

In June, Air­lie Beach will re­ceive vis­its from six cruise ships, which will bring about 10,000–12,000 vis­i­tors.

The am­bas­sadors have also re­ceived strong sup­port from Can­non­vale Marine, Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club, Lovelife Phar­macy, Barcelona Tapas Bar and Cafe, Den­man Cel­lars Beer Cafe, Abell Point Ma­rina, Port of Air­lie, Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil, Whit­sun­day Mar­ket­ing and Devel­op­ment Limited, Aimer Fash­ion and Ac­ces­sories, Me­dia Whit­sun­day and Bun­nings Air­lie Beach.
