Hotel owner spruiks region
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.
