The Murgon Business and Development Association’s inaugural meet’n’greet attracted a hardy crowd of local businesspeople to the Murgon Men’s Shed on a chilly Wednesday evening.
The night was a test for a new, more informal gathering, similar in style to the Kingaroy Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s popular six-weekly get-togethers.
The MBDA will still hold its more formal monthly breakfast meetings but plans to hold casual evening meet’n’greets every few months at local venues or businesses.
The Murgon Men’s Shed volunteered to host the first event.
Men’s Shed president David Mollenhauer brought MBDA members up-to-date on the group’s latest projects, including their restoration of the railway carriages and a steam engine.
MBDA treasurer Lorraine Goodchild said it was also a chance for the MBDA to thank Wendy Mobbs for her years of work at the Murgon Post Office, and Brett and Maree Holznagel, from The Tackle Box, which is closing soon.
“Joe, the new owner of the Post Office, also came along; which was great to meet him,” Lorraine said.
