IMG_4643 IMG_0777 IMG_0748Every year since 1948 the Rotary Club of South Brisbane has hosted a picnic day for the children of the Special Schools of the Southside of Brisbane.

Children’s Picnic October 2010 Report :  Greg Skyring

We had the best turn out for years with a total of 440 people in attendance made up of 220 children, 200 carers and 20 others. Unfortunately, the usual boats from National Parks and Wildlife and Water Police were unable to make the day but the children enjoyed themselves.  There are many people to thank:

  • Mater Hospital for catering for 220 adults and 220 children
  • Music Man for entertainment
  • Nestle for donating the trailer and ice-blocks
  • IGA Daisy Hill for supplying drinks and water
  • IGA Fresh at Rocklea for donating fruit
  • Amalgamated Food Supplies for chocolates & lollies Big Chill for donating the food trailer
  • Rotaractors for face-painting
  • Bruce Hartwig and friends for donating their time and vehicles for the Trike rides
  • Fire Brigade
  • Police
  • Bronwyn Skyring for her support and organisation – and for encouraging all those donations.
