Caloundra Woodworkers honoured


The Caloundra Woodworking Club Inc has “set in wood’’ memories of past conflicts presenting their labour of love today to the Caloundra RSL Sub Branch.
The set of 12 carvings depict scenes from Tobruk, Korea, New Guinea and the more recent Afghanistan war.
Member for Caloundra Mark McArdle has congratulated the hardworking group for conveying their dream into a reality.
“The carving project has been something the group has been working on for months now and to see the final outcome is remarkable,’’ Mr McArdle said.
“The troops in New Guinea scene was carved by the group’s own Roy Cantor who served in WW2 and can be seen in the picture.
“To see the group honour one of their own adds to just how special these carvings are.’’
Mr McArdle said since the group first formed in 1995 they had gone from strength to strength.
“I could not be more proud of what this local group has achieved over the past decade,’’ he said.
“The group has expanded from a small shed into a larger site with membership continuing to grow every year.
“This local group is truly a testament to the Caloundra region.’’
