The Stitch Gatherers Group were hoping that funds raised at this year's Biggest Morning Tea & Teddy Bears Picnic would at least equal last year's total of $1,550. How about a whopping $2,150 - that's an amazing amount for a small community and just proves that North Arm Cove residents are prepared to dig deep for a good cause.

It was a scorching hot day, but the ladies from Stitch Gatherers were ‘cool as cucumbers’ at their choice of venue, Karuah RSL.

Before the feasting got under way, Joan Williams thanked the twelve members present for their hard work during the year and passed on a suggestion from Maureen Kelly for a special event at the 2016 Melbourne Cup Lunch. This project will involve craftwork from the group and everyone is keen to get started.

The meat pies and sausage rolls flew off the table and Maureen Kelly’s electric knife ran hot as she dished out the roast beef sandwiches. But the big hit of the day was the mushy peas, which the diners attacked with gusto!

Adam Price from Blue Water Cowboys kept the music going and the toes tapping. A few brave dancers took the floor and there was an impromptu “limbo” session thanks to Wilma Greenway and a borrowed broomstick!

Join The North Arm Cove YESS Committee at their "Aussie Bush Lunch" from noon Saturday 29 August at the Community Hall.

This event is to encourage North Arm Cove families to support the YESS project, an iinitiative to provide students entering high school with a $100 grant to purchase sporting gear or equipment. It's also a jolly good excuse to get together for a hearty lunch and a fun filled afternoon.

Lunch will be about as Aussie as you can get and will include pies with mushy peas, sausage rolls, potatoes in their jackets...
