40th Anniversary CQI
This is CQI’s 40th year and we marked occasion with a small celebration on the night. A HUGE thanks to Annie who made all the decorations. They were spectacular. From the flower arch to the 40metres bunting, the huge greenery freshly cut from her garden to the chocolate boxes, she out did herself. It was very much appreciated.
Thanks to Bronwyn for organising the anniversary Cake, making another gluten free one and for bringing memories in albums for us to peruse. As Bronwyn is the longest standing member it was only fitting that she cut the cake. Bronwyn also read out a letter from Val Moore who was instrumental in creating the group all those years ago!
