Or­ange fest just around the cor­ner

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Caitlin Ous­ton on be­ing awarded the crown for Or­ange Fes­ti­val Queen.

The com­pe­ti­tion was of the high­est level and ev­ery en­trant was a win­ner.

In the words of the judges: “What a great line-up of won­der­ful young women.”

The Or­ange Fes­ti­val ball was well pa­tro­n­ised, as usual, and was a great event. Full marks to all in­volved. This event fol­lowed on from the Bush Spirit Fes­ti­val in Eidsvold which was a tremen­dous suc­cess and a great in­di­ca­tion of the many en­ter­tain­ers that re­late to coun­try liv­ing.

The Friends of RM Wil­liams pro­duced an ex­cel­lent pro­gram and the pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion was of the usual high­est level.

The North Bur­nett Coun­cil has been suc­cess­ful in hav­ing Shane We­bcke at­tend the Gayn­dah Or­ange Fes­ti­val.

Shane has ac­cepted a role as Ambassador for the Queens­land Lo­cal Govern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion and, as a re­sult, has ac­cepted an in­vi­ta­tion to at­tend the fes­ti­val.

Also, the coun­cil has re­ceived con­fir­ma­tion that the Min­is­ter for Works and Hous­ing, Tim Man­der, will be in town for the Or­ange Fes­ti­val.

Don Waugh The Or­ange Fes­ti­val ball was well pa­tro­n­ised, as usual, and was a great event.

The Min­is­ter will stay for the races and will at­tend a bar­be­cue lunch at the Golden Or­ange Ho­tel on Sun­day at noon.

This is open to all and a chance to meet him.

Tim will stay to ref­eree the State of Or­anges on Sun­day night.

Be­fore en­ter­ing Par­lia­ment, Tim was a ref­eree in the NRL.

He is here to talk about the fu­ture of the evac­u­a­tion ac­com­mo­da­tion in the re­gion.

I wish ev­ery­body a suc­cess­ful fes­ti­val and look for­ward to good weather and great en­ter­tain­ment.
