Deb’s 60th

DEB­BIE Palmes re­ceived a lovely sur­prise dur­ing last week’s Moura folk danc­ing class when a colour­ful cake and flow­ers were pre­sented to cel­e­brate her 60th birth­day.

Deb has been a mem­ber of the group for the past three years and looks for­ward to at­tend­ing reg­u­larly.

Danc­ing will con­tinue dur­ing the hol­i­days at the Youth Cen­tre on Thurs­days from 5.30-7pm. New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come. Deb’s cel­e­bra­tions con­tin­ued on Satur­day when work col­leagues, fam­ily and friends gath­ered for a de­li­cious lunch, party games and danc­ing at Moura’s RSL club.

It was a pleas­ant sur­prise to see the Hutchin­son fam­ily – He­lena, Robert and Erin – out from Rock­hamp­ton for the party.

Best wishes Deb­bie, for good health and hap­pi­ness into the fu­ture.

Re­mem­ber­ing Kianga

THE 43rd an­niver­sary of the Kianga mine ex­plo­sion, in which 13 men died, was marked on Septem­ber 20.

Many peo­ple still re­call see­ing the huge pall of black smoke caused by the mas­sive ex­plo­sion.

The well-used Kianga Memo­rial Hall stands as a re­minder of the men who lost their lives.

Our thoughts are with the fam­i­lies of those lost in the disas­ter.

Glo­ri­ous gar­dens

THANKS to the Ba­nana Shire Coun­cil work­ers for keep­ing the Gille­spie St gar­den, fronting the high­way, look­ing bright and colour­ful to wel­come trav­ellers to town.

When driv­ing along Davey St look out for the beau­ti­ful front yard of Delma and Leno Nezic, al­ways a de­light to the senses. Gar­den lovers ap­pre­ci­ate your work.

Coun­sel­lor train­ing
