Members mustering up
GYMPIE’S Zonta Club members are dusting off their cowboy hats in readiness for their annual Music Muster effort when the festival kicks off late next month.
For the past 15 years, the club has staffed the phones in the Muster’s Mary St office during the festival and has signed up to do so again this year.
President Barbara Yule said the club’s Muster involvement was a challenging but rewarding task.
“It’s our biggest fundraiser for the year and, with the funds going to the Gympie club’s Birthing Kits for Third World Countries project, it makes it all worthwhile,” she said, adding, “It certainly beats selling lamingtons.”
Mrs Yule said the pressure would be on the small but energetic Zonta club.
“Rostering is now required for a full six days as the Muster now begins on the Tuesday,” she said.
The Gympie Zonta Club’s birthing kit assembly day is being planned for September and members would appreciate either donations of funds towards the $2 cost per kit or for people to volunteer their time to help pack the goods.
