A Bloomin Good Time! At The Annual Proserpine Flower Show

The 81st Proserpine Whitsunday Uniting Church Flower Show and Fete has flourished once again this year, with over 350 attendees visiting Proserpine State School to browse the various entries, enjoy the entertainment and purchase homemade goodies.

The Flower Show is the Uniting Church’s main fundraising event and aids the everyday running of the church.

“It is truly a lovely day,” said Jane Bettridge, a Committee Member of the Proserpine Whitsunday Uniting Church.

“It’s a unique event, the way it brings all aspects together, from a performance by the nursing home, to school groups, and dancers.

“The flower displays bring so much joy, and afterwards, we give the flowers to the nursing home, and they get distributed into resident’s rooms and they put big smiles onto people’s faces.”
