The much-anticipated Toowoomba Camellia Show and Garden Expo is this weekendâ€¦and itâ€™s all hands on deck so to speak at the TAFE South-West Horticultural Centre precinct, corner of Lindsay and Campbell Streets today and tomorrow (Sat 15 and Sun 16 July).
Camellia Show President Kevin Cotterell said his Committee are over the moon with the way so many people have come together to help us. â€œWe would not be able to put on this wonderful event if we didnâ€™t have the support of all these wonderful community minded volunteersâ€
Many volunteers from different community clubs, groups and businesses have joined forces to help put together what will trigger off a series of events culminating in Queenslandâ€™s largest Camellia Show and Garden Expo this Saturday and Sunday.
Camellia Show Member Mr Mike Wells added, “As the Toowoomba Camellia Show and Garden Expo continues to bloom so does our need for volunteers to help set up and run the event, and once again the community have come forth to do so”.
â€œLike all events there are so many people who work behind the scenes and we are so privileged to have all these wonderful volunteers from different walks of life coming together to work as a team to put on what will be a great event and to help raise money for a true local charity The Toowoomba Hospiceâ€, Mike said.
There was a Friday night sponsors evening to thank businesses for their support at which members of the cast of the Toowoomba Choral Society’s next major production (“Sweeney Todd”) performed several musical items from the show.
