Q.A.T.B. Queen Carnival

Week 22 - 1924.06.03 - QATB Queen Carnival

Q.A.T.B. Queen Carnival – 3rd June 1924

An inter-district Queen Competition was held in 1924 by the Dayboro Q.A.T.B. to raise funds to pay for their new Nash motor vehicle.  Three queens were chosen, one to represent each of the three districts of Dayboro, Lacey’s Creek and Mt. Pleasant.  Committees were appointed in each district, and worked very hard to secure the largest amount of money by asking donations, and holding entertainments of every kind.   

  Fundraising was done over a period of three months and the crowning of the winning Queen took place on 3rd June 1924, with a parade and sports carnival being held in the afternoon and a ball in the evening.

The results were:- 1, Lacey’s Creek, £196/3/- ; 2, Dayboro, £183/10/5; 3, Mt. Pleasant, £104/4/-.  Alice Easlea from Lacey’s Creek was crowned the winning Queen.

The parade was headed by Mounted Constables W.H. Clements and T. Quinlan, the Dayboro Brass Band, and the school children.  The procession of queens travelled slowly from the ambulance quarters to the sports ground.
