The Cent Sale

The Cent Sale (click to enlarge)

Well, wasn’t the Cent Sale fun!

What a wonderful job Heather Wagner did organising it! Pierre Eiras played beautiful background music on the piano. Dennis Wagner provided a yummy sausage sizzle. Wayne Paulger did a fantastic job calling out the winners and keeping up an entertaining patter while doing so. Everyone wanted to win Joyce Wood’s sponge cakes. The wine and cheese platters were very popular items. Major prizes included a gift tray with a Magnum of Champagne and a leg of ham. Another major prize was a table and chair set. There were so many fantastic prizes!

Four generations of a couple of families attended!

So many people helped with this event — all the locals who donated goods, all the great cooks who donated cakes, slices, and biscuits, all the craft ladies who have been busy making gifts, and all the amazing businesses in Kenilworth, Gympie and Nambour who donated very generous prizes:

  1. Apologies from me for the treadmill, which one of Wayne Paulger’s family won. I thought it was working fully when I donated it for the Cent Sale. Unfortunately, though the electronics works fine, the electric motor is not responding, so the winner declined it after all.

    If anybody wants to try their hand at fixing it they are welcome to have it, free. It was several hundred dollars new.

  2. The Cent Sale has been a Gheerulla Hall event for decades. This year’s was outstanding . Everyone had so much fun and the prizes were fantastic.
