Cars and kisses for a cause

THE stage is set for the inaugural Minnamurra Lions Club AutumnFest this Sunday.

AutumnFest chairman Ken Magnus said the club was delighted it had managed to add a display of vintage and veteran cars to line the concourse of Black Beach.

"We have many vehicles of yesteryear making up a wonderful display for car enthusiasts like Buicks, Corvettes, Austin Healey Sprites, early Falcons, Nissan Z, plus many more well-loved pride and joys parked alongside the picturesque Black Beach," cars organiser John Knox said.

Entertainment will start at 8.30am and continue non-stop throughout the day until 4.30pm, including entertainment from most schools in the area.

"Bring a rug and enjoy the musical program and watch the up-and-coming musicians and performers from schools throughout the Illawarra, as there will be talented young people presenting song and dance on stage," entertainment co-ordinator Al Thomas said.

The main event will be Illawarra's big chance to establish the record for the most number of couples kissing simultaneously for 60 seconds in the one area. All proceeds from Spare a Kiss for MS will go to MS Research Australia.

"It will be easy to register and donate on the day at either the MS Research merchandise stall or the Lions information tent," Mr Magnus said.

"We believe there could be as many as 1000 couples who support the MS Society who will be travelling to Kiama for the event, so start practising for this 60 seconds of fun."

Entry to the park is free and the day will have something for all ages and for all members of the family.
