Mayor Mark Jamieson placing the first signature on the card

Sunshine Coast locals and visitors can secure a place in history by signing their names on a giant anniversary card in an attempt to break a Guinness World Record
Unveiled today (December 5) by Mayor Mark Jamieson was an enormous card, 2.4 metres high by 3.6 metres wide, which will feature at the New Year's Eve celebrations at Mooloolaba, marking the finale to the year-long 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast celebrations.
Every person who signs will take us one step closer to setting the world record for the most contributions to a greeting card.
Mayor Jamieson said the 50th anniversary year had been full of imaginative and engaging opportunities for Sunshine Coast residents and community groups.
"We have enjoyed a wonderful year of coming together to celebrate the people, places and events that have contributed to our Coast's story," Mayor Jamieson said.
"The giant anniversary card is another great opportunity for families, locals and visitors to come together, and wish the Sunshine Coast all the best for the future.
"We want to beat the record holders from England by aiming for 18,000 signatures."
The current record is 16,707, achieved by National Memorial Arboretum (UK) between October and December 2016.
Those unable to attend New Year's Eve in Mooloolaba will be able to make their contribution by signing online.
"The online campaign is simple and effective to use so we're confident we'll be able to reach our target," Mayor Jamieson said.
"All you need to do is visit the website, enter your details and select the message you want to appear in the card.
"This is another great example of how Sunshine Coast Council is leading the way as Australia's smart city region."

The card will also be available to sign at council offices in Nambour and Caloundra throughout December.
