Book on the rise

Gayn­dah and Mun­dub­bera launch: What do you think of the flood book?

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - ❏ Bran­don Livesay

COUN­TRY mu­sic star Gina Jef­freys en­ter­tained hun­dreds at the Rise and Shine con­cert.

It was an event tai­lor-made for fam­i­lies, with plenty of free food, en­ter­tain­ment and good mu­sic.

Par­ents watched Gina while kids had their faces painted and played with cir­cus ac­ro­bats.

Rise and Shine was also the first chance for res­i­dents to get their hands on the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett Times and BIEDO Flood Book.

The book chron­i­cles the re­mark­able im­ages and sto­ries of last year's floods.

Kim­berly Kirk said she could not wait to have a look at the book.

“When you were stuck on one side of the river, you don’t see all th­ese other in­cred­i­ble things that hap­pened,” she said.

The Mun­dub­bera Flood Book launch brought in a rau­cous crowd, ea­ger to take part in the ‘man’ auc­tion.

Five lo­cal gen­tle­men went up for auc­tion, each hold­ing a spe­cial prize.

Myr­tle Schif­fke took home the ma­jor prize af­ter plac­ing the top bid for her 80-year-old hus­band Ce­cil.
