Last weekend saw another successful Gympie Music Muster showcasing not only new and established talent, but our fantastic region, hospitable locals and our community groups working together to deliver a great community festival.
‘Rush’ festival month, celebrating the Gympie region and its people, will be launched this week. Throughout October, our community, culture and heritage will be in the spotlight with a broad calendar of events including the Ultimate Steam Festival, Gold Rush Art Competition, Heart of Gold Film Festival, Gold Rush Festival, Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival and a Thirsty Merc concert.
During October’s Rush festival, there really will be something for everybody, so start planning what you and your family would like to attend, invite your family and friends and let’s make this inaugural Rush festival an enduring and notable event unique to our region, just as the Muster has become.
Congratulations to the Gympie Cats, for winning their first premiership in eight years after defeating the Maroochydore Roos last weekend. The team comprises of several young players so this is a great boost for them. Thank you to the players, coaches, supporters,
Sponsors and volunteers for helping get the Cats to this great win.
Congratulations must also go to Gympie local, Scott Hammond who is a Queensland finalist in the Outstanding Bravery category of the Pride of Australia Awards. Mr Hammond has been nominated for his assistance in the initial stages of a vehicle accident. A panel of judges selected Mr Hammond as one of three finalists from all nominations received, and voting for the Pride of Australia People's Choice Medal is open online until Sunday, 6 September.
Whether it be for staging fantastic events, sporting achievements or individual accolades our region is really in the positive spotlight at the moment and we should all be proud.
