Mem­o­ra­bilia DVD launched

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE story of the Whit­sun­days dur­ing the 1970s and 1980s has been recorded on a DVD is now avail­able to the gen­eral pub­lic.

The DVD ti­tled Air­lie Beach – The Good Old Days was a re­sult of the suc­cess­ful Air­lie Beach tourism pi­o­neers re­union held at the Air­lie Beach Bowls Club in June.

The re­union was a cel­e­bra­tion of the life­style and the achieve­ments of the 1970’s and 1980s with old friends com­pil­ing and shar­ing his- tor­i­cal pho­to­graphs, rare movie footage, mag­a­zine and news­pa­per clip­pings, cloth­ing and sport­ing mem­o­ra­bilia.

Whit­sun­day pho­tog­ra­pher Adrian Con­nor, who cap­tured the re­union on film, was heav­ily in­spired by the life­style, freedom and beauty of the Whit­sun­days in the 1970s and 1980s.

Air­lie Beach re­union group mem­ber Pam Pole thanked all past and present Whit­sun­day res­i­dents who con­trib­uted their pho­tos, films, mu­sic and mem­o­ries for the DVD, which was launched last Fri­day.

The DVD launch was also a farewell party of Allen and Bar­bara South­wood long term lo­cals and co­founders of the Air­lie Beach Fun Race.
