L-R: Laidley Ladies' President Dorothea Moyle with BQ Director Carmel Gibb

Laidley ladies celebrate 75 years

by bqmedia

A lovely day was had by all at the Laidley Ladies Bowls Club on August 24 for its 75th birthday celebration.

A delightful morning tea was served, followed by 15 ends of bowls in very cold and blustery weather (what a challenge). Players went back into the club for a delicious lunch, which was served by the committee volunteers. Many thanks to these ladies. We cannot do without you, especially in the smaller clubs.

After lunch, it was back onto the green for another 15 ends. Despite the cold and wind, we really did enjoy our bowling. Once the afternoon bowls was finished, we moved back into the club to continue with the presentations and celebrations.

President Dorothea Moyle was very informative in her speech about the many years of service to bowls in the area. Dorothea also thanked the many past presidents of the Ladies Club that came along to socialise and enjoy the celebrations.

It was very nice to see clubs from surrounding areas, along with past members, travelling many kilometers to join in with the celebrations.

On behalf of Bowls Queensland, I would like to thank Dorothea and her committee for the invitation. It is always a pleasure to meet new people and catch up with the ladies I haven’t seen on the bowls circuit recently. Many thanks to all and may you survive and thrive for at least another 75 years.
