Take a step back to the 1950s

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Wide Bay Whirly Birds will take Childers back to the 1950s next week.

Whirly Birds or­gan­is­ers Tracey Palmer and Madonna Ryan will run a “Back to the 50s” fundraiser on May 23 with a view to raise money for lo­cal he­li­copter res­cue ser­vices, who are of­ten needed for emer­gen­cies in both the Isis and Kolan re­gions.

Mrs Ryan said food, games and other ac­tiv­i­ties syn­ony­mous with the decade would be on show at the Paragon Theatre.

“There will be a hula hoop com­pe­ti­tion, and we’ve got an­other one for the guys, which should be funny,” she said.

“All pro­ceeds will go di­rectly to the ser­vice, and we’ll be mak­ing sure all money raised in the lo­cal area is reg­is­tered as hav­ing come from the Wide Bay.”

Bookings are es­sen­tial and must be made by Sun­day, with an en­try list to ap­ply at the $50-per-head event.

Phone Madonna Ryan on 0410 092 971 for more info.
