THEY say diamonds are a girl's best friend and for the ladies of Bongaree Bowls Club they may just be right.

On November 16 the ladies of the club will celebrate their Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years together.

Ladies President Fay Pendreigh said the club would host a celebration for clubs across the Caboolture region to celebrate the milestone.

"We might be the smallest bowls club on the Island but we are certainly the most friendly," Ms Pendreigh said.

"It's a place where everyone knows your name."

For Ms Pendreigh, it was a great way to make friends in a new community.

"I've been with the club since 1996 and I've made a lot of good friends here," she said.

Since then she has moved up the ranks to take on the role of ladies president, however she said she planned to pass on the role next year.

"I think it's time for the younger ones to take over, but I will still be involved with the club.

"I've really enjoyed the role."

The Bongaree Bowls Club Ladies Diamond Jubilee celebration will be on Friday November 16 from 9.30am-1pm.
