Successful year of raising donations for community
QUOTARIANS in the Maryborough district have impacted on the lives of many residents with their donations.
Through hard work and dedication the members of Quota International of Maryborough have raised more than $10,000.
President Val Harvey mentioned in her annual report that the club had experienced a very successful year of fundraising.
"More than $10,000 was distributed to various organisations," Mrs Harvey said.
"These funds were raised by the hard-working Quota ladies, from the annual Quota Bookfest, Pre-Easter Tombola and Pink Ribbon Luncheon.
"This group of ladies, although small in number, has made a huge difference in the lives of many children and adults in the local community."
Some of the beneficiaries included Act for Kids Maryborough, Baddow Scout Group, T.S. Maryborough Naval Cadets, Proud Mary's Literary Awards, Maryborough Eisteddfod Committee, Cherish Women Foundation for Ovarian Cancer Research and Maryborough Fundraising Group for Cancer Council Queensland.
Members were asking for assistance with the donation of clean books for their 15th annual Quota Bookfest, which will be held at Maryborough City Hall from September 26-28.
Books can be dropped off at Maryborough Under Car, 120 Richmond St, Maryborough, or in Hervey Bay, 175 Cypress St, Urangan, or alternatively phone Dell on 4125 5994.
The new executive of Quota International of Maryborough was installed at a dinner and changeover ceremony held recently.
