More to flood book than great pho­tos

Busi­nesses sup­port sou­venir pub­li­ca­tion with do­na­tions

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

GOLDEN stars have been hid­den in­side six of the North Bur­nett Flood Books dis­trib­uted to each North Bur­nett coun­cil of­fice – one for each town.

Each per­son who finds a star will go in the draw to win a two-night fam­ily hol­i­day in a lux­ury three-bed­room apart­ment at Plan­ta­tion Re­sort at Rain­bow Beach.

A two-night hol­i­day at Coco Bay Noosa Re­sort and two-nights at King­fisher Bay Re­sort, Fraser Is­land, will also be up for grabs in the com­ing weeks, along with other great prizes in­clud­ing fam­ily passes to Un­der­Wa­ter World and Blue Dog goods.

All prizes have been do­nated to cel­e­brate the launch of the North Bur­nett Flood Book.

“We just can’t be­lieve the gen­eros­ity of the do­na­tions,” Linda Sil­burn, BIEDO CEO, said.

A five-night fam­ily hol­i­day to Cathe­drals on Fraser Is­land, two nights at Coco Bay Noosa Re­sort and two nights at Ele­ments on Coolum have al­ready been claimed dur­ing book launch events.

“We wanted to value each North Bur­nett town; which is why we of­fi­cially launched the book in each town and did some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent in each place,” BIEDO Flood Book co-or­di­na­tor Amanda Wenck said.

“From vin­tage dis­plays and mock­tails, to man auc­tions and tug-o-wars, we had a great time and were very blessed to be able to co-or­di­nate with ex­ist­ing com­mu­nity events.”

With the launches now over, the flood book can be pur­chased over-the-counter from any North Bur­nett coun­cil of­fice.

The book is $40, with all pro­ceeds help­ing to fund ser­vices for busi­nesses, farm­ers and pri­mary pro­duc­ers in the North Bur­nett.

For those lucky enough to come across a golden star, they sim­ply need to phone the BIEDO of­fice on 4169 7851 with the code on the back of their star to be in the hol­i­day draw.
