Re­union time in pavil­ion

Central and North Burnett Times - - MT PERRY SHOW -

FOUR gen­er­a­tions of first-born Bald­win women trav­elled from around Queens­land to get to the Mt Perry Show this year.

Shirley Bald­win and Karen Holm were both judges in the show pavil­ion, while An­gela Vu­curovic spent most of the day chas­ing af­ter her lively daugh­ter Isla.

“It was very spe­cial for us to all be to­gether here to­day, es­pe­cially since we don’t live close to each other,” Shirley said.

An­gela and Isla trav­elled from Mackay to meet with Shirley and Karen who had crossed over from Bund­aberg.

Shirley has been in­volved in shows most of her life and was pleased to see younger mem­bers of her fam­ily also tak­ing an in­ter­est.

“I won my first choco­late cake sec­tion when I was 16,” she said.

“That cer­tainly made me a pop­u­lar din­ner guest!”

Since then she has won state choco­late cake com­pe­ti­tions many times and has even worked as a tele­vi­sion cook­ing demon­stra­tor.

“Maybe one day Isla will en­joy tak­ing part in shows the way Karen and I have,” she said.

But for now, rac­ing around the pavil­ion in her pink flower shoes was much more in­ter­est­ing to Isla.
