Congratulations to Stanthorpe Rotary Young Ambassador Bridget Campbell who won the Apple and Grape Young Ambassador title at this year's festival. It is a credit to Bridget and her committee for all their hard work over the past months. This is the second festival in a row that Rotary's candidate has won the honour.
Throughout the week of the Apple and Grape Festival, Stanthorpe Rotary Club was delighted to host the Group Study Exchange Team from Florida, USA. The six visitors were welcomed into the homes of Rotarians and shown (hopefully) the best of of what the Granite Belt has to offer. To see photos and stories of what they have been up to go to their facebook page Rotary 6980 GSE Australia 2018. Thanks to the Harsletts, Tancreds, Thorburns, Klemms and Lees for opening up their homes to our visitors and to Tony for his wonderful organisation!

The first Australian National Busking Championships™ Stanthorpe Regional Finals, South East Queensland was held in February 2016 as part of the Apple & Grape Harvest Festival.

This event was a resounding success, and led to the committee decided to hold it as an annual event.

This year it was held in conjunction with the opening weekend of the Apple and Grape Harvest Festival.

Committee chair Fran Hodgson wrote the following letter of thanks to Stanthorpe Rotarians and Friends following the Championships.

Dear Stanthorpe Rotary Members and friends
Thank you so much to all the members, partners and friends who volunteered their time on Saturday to make busking@stanthorpe such a great success. The committee has had some wonderful feedback from the businesses in town, the visitors who came to watch, the buskers themselves and the general Stanthorpe population. The Noosa rotarians who also run a regional finals for the Busking were very impressed.
I really appreciated the support and the long hours that many of you gave to the busking in various ways.
Special thank you to Jim Baxter for organising the sausage sizzle and his roster of helpers and to Helene and Georgia for their role in selling the busking dollars.
It was fantastic to see so many Rotary shirts up and down Maryland and High Streets… great advertisement for Rotary..

See you again next year!!
Regards
Fran
