New shirts for ambassadors
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.
