During our Change over each year we invite the QAS Officers to come along and celebrate with us and at this time we give them a huge bundle of Care Bears. This is the twentieth year that Quota has supported the various QAS Stations. It was wonderful to welcome Jamie from QAS Carina and Mick from QAS Mt Gravatt to the event to receive this years bundle of bears.
Our Change over event is not only for welcoming in any new members and changing our committee roles. It is also the time that we present our awards and cheques to the well deserved charities that we have been raising funds for all year.
We have been supporting CleftPALS QLD Inc. and Asperger Services Australia Ltd. We were again delighted to present them both with a cheque to help in their work. As well as these we are now happy to be able to say we could present a cheque to Cindy Corrie from The Sycamore School – Autism Friendly Learning to help.
We also welcomed a special young boy to receive a donation. Kein is in yr 6 at Belmont State School, he fixes computers and gives to children who need one. What a wonderful caring young lad.
Steve Minnikin MP also attended our gathering as he does each year and it was wonderful to hear how he feels about our work and it makes us feel very proud of what we do.
