Too­goolawah is ac­tive

Ac­tive April Markets is a big suc­cess

Gatton Star - - NEWS - — Beryce Nel­son

THANK you from the Too­goolawah & District His­tory Group to all the peo­ple of the town and sur­round­ing district for your sup­port of the Ac­tive April Markets on April 8.

The town was jump­ing that week­end with the rodeo and a lot of ac­tiv­ity out at Ram­blers Sky Dive Cen­tre as well.

Esk and District Co-op, which op­er­ates the Too­goolawah IGA, got right be­hind us by do­nat­ing the prizes for the egg and spoon races which were as were as pop­u­lar with the adults as the chil­dren and there were some happy prize-win­ners.

A big thank you also goes to Too­goolawah Phar­macy and Bar­gain Buys for sup­port­ing the raf­fle this month and also to the Som­er­set Re­gional Coun­cil Li­brary Ser­vices and their staff for lend­ing us the egg-and-spoon race kits.

They are key sup­port­ers of the His­tory Group and its ac­tiv­i­ties and you can ex­pect to see their book stall at the markets dur­ing Book Week later in the year.

Lloyd Sut­ton was the guest speaker this month and en­ter­tained vis­i­tors, in­clud­ing our Fed­eral MP Shayne Neu­mann, with his won­der­ful sto­ries of 50 years of work­ing on the rail­ways.

Lloyd has kindly do­nated some of his items from that era, in­clud­ing his rail­way hat and tie and spe­cial lan­tern. We are pleased to now have these on dis­play in our mu­seum.

The next market will be a spe­cial Na­tional Trust Her­itage Month event and will in­clude the of­fi­cial open­ing of our new pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion and the day will also be an ac­co­lade to all the moth­ers in the com­mu­nity.

Stall­hold­ers have promised to get into the spirit of the event with some spe­cial treats for cus­tomers and all the usual fresh pro­duce.
