Craft and gift fair to mark 65 years
Words by Kylie Knight

The Quota Club of Redcliffe celebrates its 65th Anniversary this year and is planning to mark the occasion at its Craft and Gift Fair on Saturday, June 11.

Now a club of 20 members, compared with 24 at its charter in April, 1957, the club has a record of 207 members on its books who have worked hard to serve the community of Redcliffe for 65 years, enjoying much fun and friendship during that time.

Many projects have been delivered - from the first in 1958, a mothers’ and babies restroom at the end of the Redcliffe Jetty, to Soundfield systems provided to peninsula primary schools in 2021/22 which assist hearing-impaired children.

Achievements during the years in between have been many and varied, including providing a car each year to the Blue Nursing Service, to picnics for children from the Bush Children’s Home and the provision of a shelter and barbecue at Woody Point’s Quota Place.

The Craft and Gift Fair will be open from 9am-2pm with 25 stalls providing a variety of handmade items from collectible bears, to pottery, mosaics, timber keepsake boxes and pens, jewellery, soap products, children’s clothes and paper craft items.

It will be held at Redcliffe Senior Citizens Centre, 401 Oxley Ave.

What else is happening

Club memorabilia will be displayed with official recognition and cutting of the cake taking place at 10.30am, with Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery expected to attend.

The Henzell Street Quilters will demonstrate their skills and their beautiful quilt donation will be a major raffle prize, with all raffle funds used for community projects.

Devonshire tea will be available as well as a light lunch and tea and coffee, provided by the Quota Club of Redcliffe’s catering team.

Redcliffe Quota Club’s Craft and Gift Fair has been “on hold” for the past two years, due to COVID-19.

Entry is $5 adults, free for children. Everyone is welcome.
