Cassowaries were the centre of attention at the Mission Beach Monster Market on Sunday, September 26.
The new Mission Beach State School road signs were a popular backdrop for the many market goers keen to have their photos taken to help celebrate World Cassowary Day held each year on September 26.
The stall set up by Mission Beach Cassowaries also promoted the new date for the Mission Beach Community Cassowary Festival, now to be held on April 30, 2022.
“We are indebted to the community, who show their support for Cassowaries at every opportunity,” said Festival Coordinator Liz Gallie.
The Festival Committee extends its thanks to Art Print Frame and the Mission Beach Scouts group for their support to produce and print the twenty new road signs designed by the Mission Beach State School Kids. The signs help raise driver awareness to take extra care and attention when travelling through cassowary country.
The Cassowaries are also the real winners of a Rock and Roll Quiz Fest fundraiser held by Baden and Angela Chapman. Each year, loyal rock and roll enthusiasts are entertained by ‘The Quizmaster’ from his stage during a hilarious afternoon of fun and competition. The team with the most points takes home medals at the end of the day.
Well over $2,000 was raised for Mission Beach Cassowaries in August this year, with a marvellous donation of $500 from Rick Churchill of Alice Springs.
“The amazing contributions from our sponsors were nothing short of spectacular this year,” said the ‘Quizmaster,’ Baden.
“The camaraderie between the teams is fantastic when looking down from the stage.”
“For the past eight years, Mission Beach Cassowaries has been the lucky recipient of Baden and Angela’s fundraising and we are so grateful to his dedication to help Cassowaries” said the group’s President Liz Gallie. Baden loves Cassowaries and, as he has a mowing and gardening small business, he gets to see them often.
“The generosity and support of the community has helped fund many projects to help raise awareness of Cassowaries,” advised Liz.
