BIG cheque!

Yesterday several members of the Quilt Show Committee had the pleasure of handing over to the Rural Fire Service a cheque for the massive amount of $7000!
We were luncheon guests of Maurice Cooper, OAM at Bygone Beauties in Leura.
L to R: Daniel Myles BMCC Councillor, Chris Van der Kley Deputy Mayor BMCC, David Jones District Manager BMRFS, Moyra Sanderson Committee member, Maurice Cooper OAM Bygone Beauties, Ann Murray Committee member
Front: Susie Anderson, Suzanne Laird and Chris Jurd Committee members
We had a delightful lunch and with all those Councillors on the scene it was a chance for the Committee to gain ideas for future fund raising via Community grants.
Our donation to the RFS this year is our biggest yet and brings our total donations over the last four years to nearly $20,000.
Quite impressive for a Community quilt show run by a group of around 10 enthusiastic women who all have lots of other tasks consuming their time, not to mention several in full and part-time work.
Well done to us all and maybe we can beat this year's effort next year!


  1. Congratulations to you all. You work so hard for this event.

  2. Well done ladies! The show is always great and I am sure it will be again this year.


We always appreciate you taking the time to comment.
