Stories from the past shared

 

GLADSTONE is yet again taking the time to remember the people, experiences and history that has gone before us.

Tannum Sands State High School students recently took the time to interview the more senior members of the Gladstone region and share their stories with the whole community.

It is an annual tradition and seen as a great chance for future generations to tell the stories of the past. An initiative of the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery and Museum and sponsored by Ergon Energy and The Observer, the 16-page lift-out will be available in The Observer for purchase from Wednesday, October 6.

Steve Leighton from Ergon Energy said that he is proud to be apart of such a successful and well-read publication.

“We all like to know where we are going, but it is equally important to know where we have been and share the stories of others in that journey,” Mr Leighton said.

Now in its 12th year, Our Priceless Past features stories on members of the community including Joan McAuley and Tex Newberry, just to name a few.

The stories are heartfelt and well written by the students, and much insight is gained into our region's past.

Don't miss out on this wonderful keepsake appearing in Wednesday's edition.
