2. Merchant Navy day
WHAT started as an idea becomes a reality on Sunday when the community celebrates the official opening of a permanent memorial for merchant seafarers at Point Danger.

The dedication begins at 11am.

THE Cudgen Hornets will be shooting for a second-straight grand final appearance when they face Marist Brothers at Ned Byrne Oval, Kingscliff tomorrow. With ladies league tag kicking the action off at 10.15am, finals day combined with Cudgen Leagues Club facilities promises a fun day out.
4. Ear therapy
