Introduction by ‘Take 3 for the Sea’ guardian, Monica Mudge

.

Blue the feature documentary film screened at the Mollymook Surf Club on Friday evening. It charted the drastic decline in the health of our oceans. With more than half of all marine life lost in the last 40 years and the expansion of the industrialization of the seas, the film set out the challenges we now face and the opportunities for positive change. BUT if we don’t make the drastic changes necessary, it is predicted by 2050 that there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.

Blue the film showed how the oceans are broken, and what can be done to fix them. It featured passionate advocates for ocean preservation, it tackled themes of habitat destruction, species loss and pollution. It was filmed with stunning cinematography in the seas surrounding Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and the US, looking at how the very nature of the ocean is being altered.

The challenge it presented us: The ocean has been the guardian of life on earth, and now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean.

Performances every Monday 4.00 pm to 5.30 / 6.00 pm.

(An all ‘Star Cast’ that varies from week to week)

.

Monday December 19, performance in review:

  • Act 1: The effervescent Raymondo on violin playing his Irish reels and jigs.
  • Act 2: Greeted by thunderous applause the next act saw the ‘String Bags’ take to the stage. This threesome consisted of Jan and Raymondo on Violin with Antoinette on the Cello.
  • Act 3: Mike travelled from the ACT playing his ukulele and singing some old time favourite festive songs like ‘Jingle Bells’ etc. He handed out the words and the whole audience joined in and sang along with him.
  • Act 4: The down to earth Jimmy Williams came on stage and sang some old time country favourites whilst playing his American ‘Dobro’ instrument and some occasional background blending of the violin from Raymondo.
  • Act 5: To the hush of the audience, husband and wife team (Dougie and Marlene) took to the stage reciting poetry, fitting for the occasion.

Address: ‘The Star Hotel’ 82 Princes Highway Milton

.

Debrief the following morning at the beach.

  1. Raymondo mentioned how mixed the cast was, all that was missing was someone to do some scripture reading. Sooner than you could blink an eye, none other than Peter the Priest arrives on the scene for his annual sabbatical at Mollymook Beach.
  2. Audience: The variety of performers certainly attracted a crowd that included local luminaries the likes of Dorothy Buck, Gwenda Turnbull, Mike Devlin and Julie Ryan.

The Milton Entertainment Centre with performances every Monday afternoon commencing at 4.00 pm.

.

The 2016 Mountain to Sea marathon was once again an outstanding success with approx. 55 participants including some children who set off on the Pigeon House mountain climb a little ahead of the older participants that included elder statesman Bobby White.  The purpose for this event was to raise awareness and support for charity, principally Interplast and MUD Kids. It was the brainchild of two young boys, Harm and Jonathan Schaap, who were inspired by burns survivor Turia Pitt’s book Everything to Live for. With the assistance of their parents Ice and Maria it became a reality and has become an annual event on the local calendar. To date the Mountain to Sea marathon has raised over $14,000 for these charities.

East Coast Low – dangerous surf conditions

A low pressure system moving south from Queensland and down the NSW coastline brings damaging winds, heavy rainfall and a dangerous surf to the South Coast Tourist mecca, Mollymook. Abnormally high tides are contributing to the dangerous surf conditions with Mollymook beach almost deserted and a few brave-hearts taking time out for coffee at the Beach Hut cafe.

The severe east coast low is predicted to be fiercest on the NSW South Coast on Sunday evening, with electrical ‘Black-outs’ already occurring mid afternoon.

Wedding – Marriage Celebrant

Karen Vaughan

I am very passionate about what I do and I look forward to every wedding, like it is my first. I reside in beautiful Mollymook on the NSW South Coast and don’t sit still… I’m high energy, love a laugh and a chat and will give anything a go. I love to walk, ride, swim, eat and am partial to a glass of bubbles.

.

I’m fortunate enough to be a full time celebrant, which allows me to be very generous with my time. The wedding ceremony sets the vibe for the whole day. A ceremony with real impact will be talked about for years to come. It’s so worth putting on a great show. Great Ceremony, Great Occasion, Great Memories.

.

Planning your wedding is no mean feat and everyone wants their say. It’s your wedding so remember, the choices are yours. Do yourself a favour and make it about the two of you. I strive to make sure you enjoy yourselves, first and foremost. I take my responsibilities as a Celebrant seriously and look forward to working with you both.

    Your support was incredible!
    We have had so many comments saying it was the best and most heartfelt ceremony they have seen.
    Dan and I would love you to come to dinner soon to thank you.
    Love Rachael & Dan White
  • Karen made herself available to us via, phone, Skype and email at any time of day, during the whole process of  organising our wedding ceremony. Karen was at the ceremony one hour before the ceremony was to commence, to set up her PA system , table & chairs. She scattered rose petals as a favour to me and settled Mark’s nerves before I arrived. Karen even thought to bring new hanky’s for those who may have forgotten. I was one of those, so very thankful for her thoughtfulness even if it does seem small. (I had paid a lot of money to have my makeup done that day and did not want tears to wash it away) Karen mingled with the family and friends, introducing herself as the Celebrant. Guests all commented on how lovely and genuine she was and wanted her to stay for the whole reception. Karen declined professionally. We highly recommend Karen Vaughan from 4 Weddings on the South Coast as an exceptional Celebrant. Rest assured she would suit anyone, no matter what the occasion may be.
    Kind Regards Mark and Tracey Higgs.
  • The minute we met Karen Vaughan, we knew she was the marriage celebrant for us! Karen is sincere, kind, enthusiastic, generous and personable. She helped us through every step of the wedding ceremony planning process, offering advice and suggestions where needed. Helen and Heath.
  • To our dearest marriage celebrant Karen Vaughan, words cannot explain how much we appreciated your help and hard work leading up to our wedding ceremony. We felt so grateful to have you as our marriage celebrant and being part of our wedding. Tracey and Mark.
  • Dear Karen,
    I cannot forget my daughter telling me with the greatest excitement that she and her fiance had finally interviewed the most amazing woman who was to be their marriage celebrant. I first met Karen a few weeks before the wedding and her warmth, reassurance and confidence made me believe that my “little girl’s” special day was going to be exactly that.
    In preparation for the day Karen kept us all updated and with her gentle reminders made sure that all plans kept moving. I can recommend Karen with an absolute certainty that she will provide the utmost in all that you ask of her.
    I wish Karen much success and ongoing health and happiness as she joins couples together in one of their most memorable days of their lives.
    Maria  Xxxx
