QUOTA COOLUM BEACH TO HOST 34TH DISTRICT CONFERENCE
The Coolum Beach Chapter will host the 34th District Conference of Quota International on May 20 - 22, 2005. Coolum Beach's CWA Hall and Civic Centre will be the venues for various events. Participants from the District's twelve member clubs will attend three days of training sessions and meetings, featuring presentations by officers from Quota International. Extra-curricular activities will focus on the Coolum lifestyle, complete with samples of the local cuisine. A special invitation is extended to Quotarians who have moved away, or are no longer involved in Quota's activities.
Quota's world-wide motto is "we share". Since its inception in 1919, Quota International has become known especially for its services and fundraising efforts benefiting hearing-impaired and disadvantaged women and children. Local clubs hold various fundraising events throughout the year. Funds raised by the local Quota clubs are distributed in the local community. Additionally, Quota's efforts help increase community awareness, understanding, and friendship.
In conjunction with the Conference, the host club is holding a special fundraising raffle. Members created a stunning queen size quilt worked in the traditional candlewicking technique. The quilt features twenty large squares, each embroidered with a different design. Its skirt is adorned with fifteen medium size embroidered motifs. No expenses were spared in purchasing the finest materials, and the entire piece has been quilted by hand. A conservative estimate for the amount of time the project required is between 850 and 900 hours. An appraisal for insurance purposes values the quilt at $ 5000.00. This heirloom will be the Grand Prize in a raffle to be drawn on 21 May 2005. A gift basket containing two bottles of premium wine and a bottle of Bundaberg rum will be drawn as the Second Prize.
Raffle tickets cost $ 2.00. They may be purchased on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 10 AM and 4 PM in the Coolum Village Shopping Centre, Birtwill Street, in front of IGA or Coolum Travel.
