Launch date set for tourism book

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY NEWS AND VIEWS -

LONG-TERM lo­cal and tourism pi­o­neer is back from frol­ick­ing across the Solomon Seas and will launch her book Pi­o­neers of Air­lie Beach Vol­ume II at the end of this month.

On Fri­day, March 27 from 2pm at Can­non­vale Beach Li­brary, lo­cals and any­one with a story to tell are in­vited to the launch of Ms Hell’s sec­ond book.

The first book was re­leased last year and in­cludes sto­ries and pic- tures from the tourism pi­o­neers of Air­lie Beach.

Ms Dell de­cided to re­lease a sec­ond book sim­ply be­cause there were more sto­ries to tell.

“I would like all those in­ter­ested in his­tory of tourism in Whit­sun­days and all those with sto­ries in both vol­umes or just any­body who is in­ter­ested in the his­tory of one of the most popular hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions in Australia to come,” she said.

“It’s im­por­tant to be familiar with your his­tory and this town’s is ex­tra­or­di­nary.”

Both books will be on dis­play on the day and Ms Hell will be tak­ing fi­nal or­ders for Vol­ume I and fur­ther or­ders for Vol­ume II.

She is ex­pect­ing a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil to at­tend and says re­fresh­ments will be avail­able on the day. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Dale Hell on 0416 273 598.
