Friends and family members packed into the Kumbia Race Club clubhouse on Friday evening to mark the retirement of well-known local butcher – and Kumbia icon – Brian Lenihan.
Brian, who turns 81 this year, told southburnett.com.au he started in the butcher shop 58 years ago.
Friday was his official retirement day.
But he emphasised that although he’s retiring from the shop, he wasn’t retiring as president of the Kumbia Race Club – a role he’s held for 47 years!
Brian was sporting a neck brace at his big celebration, courtesy of a serious motor vehicle crash a few weeks ago while heading to the Injune races.
He cracked two vertebrae and three ribs in the rollover.
