Keepsake wins praise and admiration
EACH year a SCOPE member is asked to compile a keepsake for the national president, depicting their year in office.
This year Wynnum's talented scrapbooker Margaret Davey was asked to do the honours for Allora's Daphne Whatley.
Mrs Davey has spent the past 12 months carefully constructing the book and presented it to Mrs Whatley during the national conference held at the weekend.
Although it has been a long process, Mrs Davey said the project was a labour of love and she was ecstatic with the end result.
"I loved doing it because it includes all of the SCOPE members and you do little things to personalise the pages," she said.
The Ballina pages were adorned with sea creatures, water and sand and Allora's events were lined with sticky sunflowers.
Mrs Whatley said she personally selected Mrs Davey to craft the book because she knew of her talents and couldn't be happier with the piece.
"It is absolutely wonderful - I took it home (Friday night) and all of the visitors loved it and said how great it was," Mrs Whatley said.
