Congratulations to the Esk Show Society Miss Showgirl Quest and Rural Ambassador entrants.  I was honoured to be asked to be one of the Judges of the evening “Night of Nights”, and I commend the girls on the way they conducted themselves during the interviews.  I wish every girl the very best and especially wish them a bright future achieving their dreams.  I also wish to extend my congratulations to the Esk Show Society for their innovative changes/additions made to this year’s show schedule.

I attended the Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield Inc and the Red Thunder Formation Team for a classic airfield breakfast.  There was a great turn out who enjoyed breakfast and I was offered a tour around the grounds, buildings and the planes.  It was a very interesting morning talking to the many pilots and understanding the passion they hold around flying.  Future plans of the organization was also expressed.

179 YEARS AT CRESSBROOK

Today, the McConnel family celebrate 179-years of settlement and custodianship at Cressbrook.

Cressbrook is now run by fifth-generation descendant Christopher McConnel, with his wife Susan and their daughter Caitlin. Their home, the House at Cressbrook, is the oldest residence and third oldest building in Queensland, and they are the oldest identified family business in Queensland.

In the words of Madge McConnel (nee Kent of Jondaryan), wife of second-generation owner of Cressbrook, James Henry McConnel, “the story of Cressbrook would not be complete without reference to old friends, and employees whose memory we value, and whose descendants some of them are still with us or settled near us.”

Madge’s words continue to have relevance today, over 100-years on. Today, Christopher, Susan and Caitlin not only celebrate this historic milestone, but more importantly, it provides an opportunity for them to be grateful for, and to acknowledge the continued support of friends, family and members of the public who hold their story, and the history of agriculture and development in Australia, dear to their hearts.
