Mums Inspired Winning Float



“The inspiration behind one of the award-winning floats at this year’s Christmas Pageant was a celebration of motherhood. Elizabeth Sternal, who accepted the award with Trudy Hanlon, said that the Ward C float from the Port Pirie Hospital had been a tribute to all the mothers in the community. The entry won Best Business Float.”

It has been very interesting and a lot of fun going through the Combined Service Clubs History Scrapbooks which have been kindly lent to the current committee. This article from 2001 is still relevant today fifteen years later with Port Pirie Hospital C Ward playing such an important role in the Port Pirie community. Go to the History tab on this website for more paper clippings and photos.

We’d love to see  you enter a float into the 2016 pageant. What will your theme be?

Please enter your float by Friday November 18th, 2016.

You can enter your float online here on this website, or download a pdf from the same page. Or you can pick up a hard copy form from The Recorder office (10 Mary-Elie Street) or the Port Pirie Regional Council office (115 Ellen Street), Port Pirie.

Lets break some records and make this the biggest pageant yet!
