Christmas_in_july_caloundraOur annual ‘Christmas in July’ gathering was held once again for one and all to enjoy. Tables were loaded with blankets and warm clothing (socks, beanies, scarves, jackets etc), hygiene items, dry goods and hot food, soup, pizza, and garlic bread. With about 55 patrons and a number of Rosies’ volunteers in support, a busy time of eating and chatting to old friends and new chums alike. The supply of blankets, beanies and scarves exceeded demand – the balance being repacked and distributed to others in need via The Downs and West Charity group whom Rosies have supported on previous occasions. These items were passed on to Sister Christine just in time for her planned visit to Aboriginal communities in Central Queensland. Those outreach missions were in urgent need of warm clothing for the frosty inland winter. A huge thank you to the local community for their overwhelming support.
