Cel­e­brate great na­tion

Aussie Day fes­tiv­i­ties

Isis Town and Country - - Cwa Australia Day -

CHILDERS and its sur­round­ing re­gions are ar­eas that sure know how to cel­e­brate and Aus­tralia Day is no ex­cep­tion.

Cel­e­brated on Jan­uary 26, Aus­tralia Day is a chance to re­mem­ber what it is that makes be­ing Aus­tralian great and just have a fab­u­lous time be­ing a part of a lo­cal com­mu­nity.

In Childers on Aus­tralia Day the fo­cus is on the Aus­tralia Day Quiet Achiev­ers Awards and Fam­ily Pic­nic Day.

Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to head to the Isis District State High School Sta­dium from 7.30am with a gold coin do­na­tion and en­joy a de­li­cious break­fast hosted by the Childers QCWA.

While be­ing a chance for the lo­cal com­mu­nity to get to­gether and en­joy Aus­tralia Day, it also re­minds peo­ple about the Queens­land Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion.

Women from all walks of life are mem­bers who join for vastly dif­fer­ent rea­sons – from meet­ing peo­ple, learn­ing new skills to get­ting in­volved in the com­mu­nity, and some are even in­tro­duced by their mums as chil­dren.

The QCWA means some­thing dif­fer­ent to ev­ery­one and what bonds mem­bers is friend­ship and their strong de­sire to help oth­ers be­cause each branch de­cides what ac­tiv­i­ties to get in­volved in, pay­ing par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to lo­cal com­mu­nity needs and mem­ber in­ter­est.

Bux­ton will not be for­got­ten this Aus­tralia Day ei­ther, with the Bux­ton Ru­ral Fire Brigade host­ing its an­nual Big Aussie Day Brekky, which has a tonne of food, mu­sic, games and more. Held from 7am, it is a chance for ev­ery­one to get to­gether and cel­e­brate on the Bux­ton Fore­shore, which is a great place for fam­i­lies.
