Legends share big milestone
THIS week, Chinchilla News says thanks.
Thanks to two people who have contributed thousands of words and priceless stories to this newspaper for more than three decades.
Vince McCaffrey OAM and Ethel Priestley, better known through our pages as the local legends behind the Round the Ridges and Ethel’s Jottings columns, both turned 90 this week.
And, believe it or not, they share the same birthday – June 18.
It is an almost unbelievable coincidence that two remarkable people came into this world on the same day and have both managed to contribute so much not only to this newspaper but also to their towns of Chinchilla and Miles.
It is people like Vince and Ethel who make this paper what it is.
So, why not follow their lead?
Send us a Letter to the Editor or a story about what is happening in your patch.
To our wonderful Vince and Ethel, thanks.
And happy birthday.
