Kilcoy Historical Society Monthly Meeting

The group is considering completing the Heritage Trail of local Kilcoy buildings by including the Council Offices, Kilcoy Cultural Centre & Memorial Hall and Kay Avery Place by placing the famous green life story on the exterior of each building.  The committee will write to Somerset Regional Council seeking permission.  The committee is also seeking feedback from Council regarding the status of the proposal master plan of Yowie Park, Kilcoy.

 

Kilcoy Art Society Inc. – Opening of new Exhibition & 5th Birthday Celebrations

A very happy group of art lovers gathered to celebrate the Official Opening of the Artist of the Month – Kris Wheeler and five years in the Courthouse Gallery.  Some guests travelled from as far as Kingaroy, and were delighted with the standard of art on display and the overall appearance of the Courthouse Gallery.

 

Toogoolawah State High School – Open Day & Careers Expo

Attending this informative evening with the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Cr Brieschke, there was much to see and learn at the Open Day and Careers Expo.  Well done Toogoolawah State High School for providing an informative and friendly evening, encompassing so many different sections of the school’s curriculum.

 

Kilcoy State Primary School – 125th Anniversary Book Launch

A lovely afternoon spent in the school’s multi-purpose hall, meeting with past students, parents and teachers.    A time capsule was opened in the lead up to the celebrations and the contents were on display along with items that will be included in the next time capsule.   It is amazing to visualise the change in our town over the past 25 years.  Congratulations to Mrs Angela Burgess who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to produce the Kilcoy State School – 125 Years “A Photo Memoir”.

 

Lowood Seniors’ Week Celebration

The Lowood Showground Hall was overflowing with seniors enjoying various entertainment, raffle draws, trade stall products and a hearty lunch.  Once again, congratulations to the organising committee, I am sure we are all looking forward to attending this event again next year.

 

Congratulations to the Linville community – LifeFlight Foundation Fundraiser

With a population of around 156 residents, Linville has exceeded their own record of fundraising for this very worthy service.  This year the community helped give back to LifeFlight in their own unique way, raising nearly $34,000 by organising “Off the top of your head” fundraiser by shaving the heads and waxing the chests of brave supporters.   Linville residents were joined in by surrounding towns, digging deep over an evening of raffles, auctions and hair removal during the weekend of 15/16 July.   Now in its second year, this fundraiser has raised more than $54,000 for the LifeFlight Foundation.

 

Kilcoy Caravan Park, William Street, Kilcoy – Fire and resulting destruction of five caravans

At around 1:00pm on Saturday 19th August, a caravan caught alight and an explosion was reported.  Emergency Services were called and unfortunately a total of five caravans were destroyed.  On a brighter side, there were no casualties.  Three caravans were unoccupied, one occupant lost very minimal possessions and another occupant lost work tools only.  Thank goodness given the circumstances, no-one was injured and the fire was contained to the caravan park, and only five caravans.

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.
