Most important job at the festival? The coffee run

MONDAY MALE: Life is pretty cruisy for local boy Dawson Frost.

The 14-year-old has lived in Gladstone his whole life and considers it a great place to live.

Dawson is a Chanel College student and - when homework hasn't got him bogged down - he works part time at the Gelatissimo cafe at East Shores.

He was hard at work when The Observer caught up with him.

On the weekend he was in charge of running coffee to those organising and running the Easter Fun Run.

"I've been with Gelatissimo for four months," he said.

"This is the first time I've had to do deliveries like this."

Dawson lives in town with his mum and although he doesn't have any siblings, he does have a great group of mates.

The teen also considers himself a bit of an athlete, playing a lot of soccer.

"I'd probably be in the run if I wasn't working today," he said.

"When I've got some time off I love anything to do with the beach, and of course fishing."

With school holidays officially starting, Mr Frost said he was heading to Sydney for a family holiday.

"It's my aunty's wedding so we're off," he said. "It's going to be good fun."
