Camp Quality comes to Dongara 2009

  Every year Camp Quality sends a group of kids to Dongara for the Festival Weekend and Blessing of the Fleet. Our local Lions Club gives them a great time with a disco, drive-in movie & good fun.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
The Bowling Club puts on  meal of Fish & Chips on Friday night and the whole town welcomes them with open arms.           
 Last year some of our members decided to make quilts to give to these kids who certainly all deserve bravery awards.      The quilts were received with so much enthusiasm and delight and we all got such a buzz out of seeing their faces light up that we decided to do it again this year. Tonight we were invited to the camp at the Rec Centre to present the quilts and then stay on for a casserole tea. Here's a collection of pics to share the fun and excitement as each boy or girl opened their quilt. The crowd whooped and cheered as each one was displayed and lots of hugs were shared



Everyone tucked into the delicious meal provided by the "Lions"
                                                                                                                                                                                             A few of the boys had been last year as well so they received a cushion and one special local girl, Karri, who is Patron of the Camp, was also presented with a quilt to commemorate her 21st Birthday this week.

What a great evening. I'm sure the gift of a quilt means so much to those children. Well done all you lovely women for making the day even more special for them all.
