Helpers needed for event
THIS year marks Gladstone's 42nd eisteddfod.
The finishing touches are being put together for this year's performance but organisers are still urgently looking for more volunteers.
The long-standing community event is set to take place at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre between August 12-23 and at the GEC Marina Marquee between September 23-26.
Talented performers ranging in age from four years to 84 years will take the stage.
Speech and drama will take place from August 12-14, the vocal competition from August 15-16 and instrumental competition on August 17 and 20-23.
The dance competition will be on at the marina on September 23-26.
Organisers are reminding the community to deliver Own Choice Entries urgently to the eisteddfod office at 32B Tank St.
The 2012 eisteddfod program is available for sale from five outlets.
