A jolly good time to arrive in town
MELON country sure is sweet at Christmas time, particularly to new journalists it seems!
My first day at Chinchilla News had me off and running, mingling with the locals at the CCCI Christmas Street Party held last Thursday evening. This was an excellent way for me to get a feel for the town of Chinchilla, a part of the world I hadn’t had the pleasure of visiting since I was young.
After living in several parts of Queensland and South-East Asia, I believe you really get to know a place by its people. Chinchilla immediately struck me as a town with a lot of heart and soul.
On Friday I was fortunate enough to meet some of the local Drought Angels and was left in awe of Tash Johnston and her committed team of volunteers. What an astounding difference two local ladies can end up making. The best part is, Drought Angels is just one of the fantastic initiatives happening right now in Chinchilla.
I’m looking forward to getting out and experiencing much more of this great part of the world as well as more of the lovely locals.
Chinchilla, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for making my first week in town so memorable and sweet.
The Chinchilla News family would like to wish our readers a safe and merry Christmas.
Our next edition will be out next week as usual on Thursday, December 27.
