It never ceases to amaze me the strength and resilience of country people. Queensland is in the middle of a devastating drought and those on the land are struggling beyond words. But the people of these small country towns and districts rally together each year to put on display the best of the best at their local shows. Many of these committees also celebrate with a Show Ball. Gayndah is one of those communities that band together regardless of the obvious difficulties to provide a level of entertainment that most of us love. I am one that has so many childhood memories of our local shows and of my parents dressing in their finest to attend the event of the year - the Show Ball. I was privileged to be asked to provide the décor for the 100th Gayndah Miss Show Girl Presentation night. Gayndah is an hour's drive from Murgon and I arrived on the Friday evening to a group of dedicated helpers and in no time at all the hall was decorated and I was home again. I will drive back again on Sunday morning to pack up and marvel at the community spirit that is alive and thriving in rural Queensland.......
Gold and black adds a touch of class to the celebrations of a small country town.
Most small rural towns have a common hall where the community comes together to celebrate special occasions and to remind us all that through adversity shines hope.
