The Queen (Lorraine Griffiths) with The Town Crier (Shirley Wesche)

80 years for South Suburban’s Presidents at Home

by bqmedia

The women from Suburban Ladies Bowls Club in Mackay celebrated their 80th birthday of the Presidents at Home. President Lorna Coad, club members, bowlers from surrounding clubs and district members joined in the festivities and BQ Director, Carmel Gibb, attended the event. A game of bowls and a lovely afternoon tea was had by all.

President Lorna, along with the MDLBA President Lyn Jackson, did the honours of cutting the tasty cake.
A little fun was introduced when a town crier (Shirley Wesche) appeared and announced the arrival of “The Queen”. “The Queen” (Lorraine Griffiths) gave a wonderful, hilarious speech and presented President Lorna with the OBE (Over Bloody Eighty) medal.

Carmel said she enjoyed a lot of laughs and has built some good memories. “I would like to thank all the ladies and Col the Chairman of the Board, who was also my taxi driver, for their hospitality during my very short visit.”
