EVENTS 





MARY-LOU STEPHENS - SEX, DRUGS AND MEDITATION  

  

Sex Drugs and Meditation Most of you will know Mary-Lou as one of the voices of ABC Coast FM Radio, but there was a big life for our guest before the Sunshine Coast captured her. Sex, Drugs and Meditation is a memoir, a wickedly humorous true story of a woman with a talent for self-sabotage. Mary-Lou's life ran a hectic course, navigating the perils of drugs, alcohol, drama school, family issues, love affairs and late night gigs. Miraculously, she somehow made it into her forties, but only with the help of therapy and NA/AA.

 

We are thrilled to be celebrating the release of Mary-Lou's book, and can guarantee a fun and entertaining evening on the footpath. Mary-Lou will be in conversation with her friend and co-worker John Stokes, and you never know, there may even be a little music as well.

WINE & CHEESE - ON THE FOOTPATH 




BIGGEST MORNING TEA 

  

Loani We will be holding our fourth BIGGEST MORNING TEA on THURSDAY 16th MAY from 9.30am on the footpath.  This is the major annual fundraiser for the Cancer Council, providing essential funds for their fabulous work in the fields of cancer research, support and prevention.  Our community has embraced this event enthusiastically over the last four years, but we hope that this year's event will be the most successful to date.
 
We are thrilled to be welcoming "Queen of the Tea Cosies", LOANI PRIOR as the host of our Biggest Morning Tea.  Loani is the author of three enormously successful books on the art of the tea cosy, and has become quite an identity around the country and overseas, as well as being nominated as 2013 Ambassador for the BIGGEST MORNING TEA.  Loani is very kindly donating some of her own hand made tea cosies for our raffle, which will be packed with prizes; books of course, as well as goods and services kindly donated by our generous community.
 
We can promise a fun morning with great coffee, delicious things to eat, and dozens of opportunity to win some of our fabulous prizes.
