WHEN a community pulls together amazing things can happen.

With models strutting their stuff on the catwalk, tarot card readings and lucky door prizes, the Ladies' Garden Party at Tannum Sands was a day to remember for many of the attendees.

Women from the Gladstone region got together to raise funds for a new gazebo for Tannum Sands Kindergarten on Saturday.

Organiser Nicole Hill said funds raised would also go towards a new cubby house and a sensory garden.

"All the work will happen in the September school holidays," she said.

A number of Tannum Sands State High School students helped out by working as waiters, and local parents helped too.

"Most of the food here today is homemade," Mrs Hill said.

"There are future and past parents here; it's a real community day."

Attendee Melissa Maxwell said it was a lovely day to be outdoors.

She said the Tannum Sands Kindergarten was a "lovely little community kindy".

"I haven't done the taro reading yet, but it's on the cards," she said whimsically.

Luise Buckingham said she was at the event as a member of the Tannum Sands community.

She has put her boys through the kindergarten and said that she rated it highly. "It's great to catch up with some friends," she said.

Emma Dingle said her twins were to attend next year.

"Events like this should happen across the whole region," she said.

"It's great to have people from Calliope and Gladstone attend," she added.
