Comment: Mary St trees strike a pose

THE Gympie Times got right behind businessman Tony Goodman's Winter Trees on Mary event yesterday afternoon by decorating its allotted tree down Mary St.

Staff members making the trip down Gympie's main street, supplies in hand, enjoyed the chance to do something they never thought would be needed in a working day - giving a tree a makeover.

It was a novel activity and, judging by the many trees already decorated by other businesses and groups, fun was the name of the game.

However, it was hard not to feel a little intimidated by some of the entries.

A special mention is needed for the Combined Churches ladies, spotted stitching their entry together on the tree itself.

Everyone who participated deserves a round of applause.

It takes effort to make community events happen and all organisers are worthy of our sincere appreciation.
