Ho­tel owner spruiks re­gion

Central and North Burnett Times - - MENUS AND VENUES -

ONE of Gayn­dah and district’s fore­most sup­port­ers, Ken Mogg, is keen to pro­mote the unique area of the North Bur­nett so well-known for its cit­rus.

The Golden Or­ange Ho­tel Mo­tel owner has been work­ing through a bucket list of items to mar­ket the district’s nat­u­ral beauty, pro­duce and com­mu­nity.

With a vi­sion be­yond gam­bling, bet­ting and al­co­hol, Ken will con­tinue to stage spe­cial events to draw in the wider com­mu­nity.

“There is life af­ter the floods of 2013,” Ken said.

“In over 50 years in the work­force, it still gets down to hard work and sup­port.

“For any busi­ness to be suc­cess­ful, we need to as­sess our con­tri­bu­tions to com­mu­nity and re­spect that most house­holds are run un­der the same pres­sures as any busi­ness.”

Rock­ing Gayn­dah on Septem­ber 13 will be the Masters of Rock, a four-hour trib­ute ex­trav­a­ganza to Led Zep­pelin, The Doors, Deep Pur­ple, AC/DC and Guns’n’Roses.

With a vi­sion of a fun fam­ily day out, Ken was work­ing with the Gayn­dah Horse and Jockey Club to gen­er­ate record-break­ing at­ten­dance at Gayn­dah’s Oc­to­ber 11 race meet­ing.

And as the weather continues to warm, the Golden Or­ange will host Gayn­dah’s an­nual street party, in­clud­ing pig races, in Maltby Place on Oc­to­ber 25.

Those in­ter­ested in hav­ing a stall at the com­mu­nity fundraiser for preven­tion of youth sui­cide should con­tact Amanda Wenck at BIEDO on 0448 462 639.

With in­no­va­tion firmly in mind, Ken fi­nally re­vealed that pride of place on his bucket list was Opera in the Quarry.

Mean­while, there will al­ways be a warm wel­come at the Golden Or­ange Ho­tel Mo­tel.

The Steak­house, held each week on Fri­day and Satur­day evenings from 6pm, had earned high praise, Ken said.

The Golden Or­ange Ho­tel reg­u­larly hosts func­tions and book­ings are wel­come for 20 and more.
