For­mer res­i­dents look back on Coal­stoun Lakes days

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE who once called Coal­stoun Lakes home trav­elled back from Mary­bor­ough, Wondai, Her­vey Bay and across the North Bur­nett for its an­nual re­union.

On their cal­en­dar the last Satur­day in Septem­ber is ear­marked by many for a day not to be missed.

Or­gan­iser Vi Rack­e­mann said it was a lovely day to sit down and rem­i­nisce.

“It is great to see peo­ple make the ef­fort to come back as many are get­ting el­derly,” she said.

Mrs Rack­e­mann has a col­lec­tion of mem­o­ra­bilia which she took for ev­ery­one to look through on the day.

“I also took my late mother’s (Gla­dys Staib) scrap­book which is filled with news­pa­per cut­tings,” she said.

“It’s amaz­ing, in­vi­ta­tions she re­ceived to wed­dings, kitchen teas etc are also in­cluded.”

Another pho­to­graph has been added to the walls of this almost 100-year hall – that of early set­tlers Jack and Emma Pow­ell and fam­ily.
