Welcoming spring

Gloucester Quota Club held a lovely Spring Afternoon Tea on Saturday September, celebrating the first day of spring. 

Sixty five people enjoyed a happy chance to chat and enjoy cake and tea. 

We were then entertained by the vocal stylings of Gloucester High School student, Liam Chester, who was accompanied by fellow student, Georgia Dark on guitar.

We were pleased to hear a varied program, including some pieces that these talented young musicians will present for their Higher School Certificate (HSC) music examination. 

Liam, is off on another singing adventure in Europe and he told us of the cities his program will take him to in 2019, which are mainly in Italy.  

Proceeds from the afternoon, which amounted to $1032, are being donated to the travel fund to help Liam and fellow singer, Nina Samson with their tours.

Quotarians would like to thank the Friends of St Paul for all their help in serving the food and providing their facilities.  

A very pleasant afternoon was enjoyed by all and once again the community of Gloucester has been very generous in their support of a worthy cause and we thank you one and all.
