Cutout attracts young ambassadors
IT WAS a swinging sixties theme this year at the second annual Proserpine Lions Club Cutout Cabaret function on Saturday night.
More than 100 people attended which instilled a sense of community spirit and recognised the new community ambassadors of Proserpine.
Proserpine Lions Club treasurer Doug Winterflood said the night was very enjoyable and had improved on last year.
The night which traditionally celebrated the end of the harvest season and crowned the harvest queen, made some slight changes this year to recognise Lions Club ambassadors instead.
Businesses and individuals nominated ambassadors who did their bit selling raffle tickets to raise funds for the Proserpine Citizens' Band.
Rozie Graham was crowned this year's Lions ambassador and said it was a great experience being involved in the competition.
“I think stuff like that brings the community together,” she said.
“It is not really as difficult or scary as you think [the competition].
Heidi Walton was deemed the charity ambassador for raising about $3000 for the cause.
Mr Winterflood said the five ambassadors were great representatives of the community.
“We were speaking to the judges and they were all very impressed with the girls,” he said.
