The annual reunion of past and present Nanango residents will be held in the grounds of Ringsfield House on Saturday, March 16.
The reunion provides an opportunity for past and present residents to renew old acquaintances.
It was formerly held at New Farm Park in Brisbane for more than a decade, but relocated to Ringsfield in 2017.
As usual, the reunion will run from 9:00am to 2:00pm in Ringsfield’s grounds.
There will be a canteen operating on the day and the Ringsfield Café will be open.
If possible, guests should bring a chair because seating is limited.
This year, reunion organisers have asked Nanango historian Liz Caffery to give a talk about her most recent book, ‘The Memory Tree’.
The book was launched at last year’s Armistice Centenary commemorations and documents the memories of 140 Nanango servicemen and women who fought in World War I.
Tragically, 20 per cent of the soldiers who served from the Nanango district perished in the “war to end all wars”.
Further information about this year’s reunion can be obtained from organiser Vicky Cross by email or by phoning her on 0407-279-015.
