Crowd heads to fair

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Jodie Dixon Re­porter jodie.dixon@isistc­

I HOPE ev­ery­one had a great Easter and made the most of the long week­end.

The re­gion had per­fect weather for the Woodgate Easter Fair. Well, sort of. The mild rain didn’t stop lo­cals and visi­tors from mak­ing the most of the day.

Thank you to Woodgate Com­mu­nity Events for once again putting on a spec­tac­u­lar event. I am more im­pressed each year as the event is get­ting big­ger and more peo­ple are vis­it­ing from across the re­gion and state. Or­gan­is­ers should be proud and well done to the ded­i­cated team of hard­work­ing vol­un­teers who worked tire­lessly lead­ing up to the event and crawled out of bed be­fore dawn to set up for the fab­u­lous day.

It was a very quiet morn­ing around Childers on Mon­day when I ar­rived at work; I had the town to my­self, that’s what it felt like, with the odd car and truck cruising through town.

I headed out to Woodgate early, only to see many familiar faces in the crowd. It seems many of the Childers lo­cals de­cided to spend the day in Woodgate as well, which was great to see.

Next on the calendar is the Isis Dis­trict Show, set to cel­e­brate a mas­sive mile­stone of 100 years.

The show so­ci­ety or­gan­iser has great plans for this year’s event and is en­cour­ag­ing the com­mu­nity to get in­volved. The event con­tin­ues to grow and more visi­tors are drawn to the area.

Also gear­ing up for a big party is Booyal Cen­tral State School.

They will also be cel­e­brat­ing 100 years later this year.

Keep an eye out for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion as the date draws closer.
