Official launch of Our Priceless Past

THERE was a lively crowd at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum on Tuesday, for the launch of Our Priceless Past 2012.

When officially opening the display, Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers spoke of the project's great importance.

"Each year by telling the stories of our special seniors and putting together an exhibition such as this one, we are taking steps to record our uniquely important history, in an ever-changing region," she said.

The stories, written by Trinity College Gladstone's Year 9 students, were shared with the wider region yesterday in The Observer's special lift-out, and the exhibition of photographs and memorabilia will continue on display at the gallery/museum until Saturday, November 3.

Our Priceless Past is a partnership project of Ergon Energy, The Observer and Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum.

For further information or to nominate a senior for 2013, please phone the gallery/museum on 49766766 or email gragm@gladstonerc.qld.gov.au.
