In December, we (the TFF) were invited by Yungaburra Community Association to present a Tablelands Folk Festival report at their annual Pre-Christmas event.
Around 25 other local Yungaburra Community groups joined us on the night.
It’s difficult to paint an accurate picture of the history, current events and future festival aspirations in a 5 minute talk ut they say a picture paints a thousand words.
A great finale for 2013 for the TFF. The signed poster now hangs proudly in the main corridor of the Hotel.
Brett Turner joined an elite few when he was presented with Life Membership of the TFF Association at our recent AGM.
Brett has been the back-bone of our ‘volunteers teem’ for many years and now joins just 6 others at the top of our membership list. Our very own Magnificent Seven.
Congratulations and well done Brett.
The Annual Tablelands Folk Festival held in Yungaburra during October 2013 was once again a successful event on the Tablelands Calendar.
This is in no small part due to the assistance of the men and women of the Malanda SES.
They provide the Festival with first aid and keep a close eye out for any ‘lost’ parents, re-uniting them with their children.
In appreciation of their efforts, Mick Hodgkins, TFF President recently presented SES Leader Brian Walters with a cheque for $1500.00.
This donation is to assist the Malanda SES to keep things ticking over in their community over the coming months.
Thankfully during the Festival the worst injury was treated with a band aid and a few kind words and we hope this continues to be the case during future Festivals.
