Get­ting on with the job

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Erica Mur­ree

MOST coun­try folk don’t let ad­ver­sity get in their way.

The Tee­bar Sports As­so­ci­a­tion could have thrown in the towel and called off last Satur­day’s event when their grounds were dev­as­tated by the Jan­uary 26 floods.

But no, af­ter ini­tial help from vol­un­teers and a num­ber of work­ing bees with 20 peo­ple who had left their own dev­as­ta­tion be­hind to come give a help­ing hand, it was all sys­tems go.

On Satur­day pa­trons poured through the gates to head to the rodeo arena or to browse through the hall where they were as­tounded by the pho­to­graph dis­play show­ing how high and far flood­wa­ters had come.

To all vol­un­teers, give your­selves a pat on the back for a job well done.
