The Queen Street & West Woollahra Association held their Annual Dinner to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Association on Tuesday 14th June at The Woollahra Hotel with over 80 guests. The evening started with drinks in the Queen Street Lounge followed by a delicious 3-course meal in the Terrace Restaurant. The food was accompanied by an excellent selection of wines and beer from the hotel's extensive list. After two years of not being able to hold the dinner due to Covid, this was a tremendous opportunity for local residents and businesses to reconnect. Judging by the noise levels and the buzz in the room, everyone took full advantage of being able to meet up again and had a most enjoyable evening. The Woollahra Hotel provided great hospitality and we are very grateful for their continued support.
The highlight of the evening was special guest Leo Schofield, the founding President of the Association in 1972, reminiscing on the early years of the Association. Leo's memory was as sharp as a razor and his stories brought back many fond memories so the more mature guests attending. Many thanks to Leo and we hope to see him again at future events.
Thanks too to the local business who very generously donated some very valuable prizes for our raffle - Matthew Ely Jewellery, Parterre, Moncur Cellars, The Dental Rooms and an individual donation by Leo Schofield, who was also called on to draw the winning tickets. The raffle was very successful, all due to the magnificent prizes for which we are very grateful.
Finally, our thanks also to our official photographer for the evening, Eric Scott who did a great job as usual.
Giles Edmonds, QSWWA President
