FOR MORE THAN seven years well over 1000 people have attended the welcome dinners for newcomers to the Blackall Range.

Started as a community project by the Lions Club of Maleny Blackall Range, each year brings new and old residents together. One year, neighbours who had come to live on the Hinterland some months earlier, had not met until they sat at the same Lions dinner table.

Those who attended the first few years were very

fortunate to meet the late gardening guru, Colin Campbell who was always willing to make new locals very welcome to this community.

This year there is a most entertaining speaker, David Crewe, who attended a Welcome Dinner as a newcomer three years ago. and has already made a huge impression on the community.

For a fun night on Wednesday September 19 contact Colin on 5435 2867 or John on 5435 2759 for more information and tickets.
