Liftout brings back memories

REMEMBERING priceless memories is just one of the many great things about looking into the past.

Today is the day where you can revisit times of old when you pick up The Observer’s special 16-page liftout of Our Priceless Past.

The keepsake, which is now in its 12th year of publication, contains stories from the more elderly members of the community told by our young community leaders – high school students.

This year Tannum Sands State High School had the pleasure of doing the interviews, and the stories found were often unexpected and heart-warming.

Yesterday the official launch was held at the Gladstone Art Gallery and Museum with major sponsors Gladstone Regional Council, The Observer and Ergon Energy all in attendance.

It was a great day out and seniors and students chatted away.

June Hendry talked fondly of her interviewer, Amy Brown, and when questioned about her favourite memories, said that she had many.

“I’ve had lots of great memories from all different places across Australia,” Mrs Hendry said.
