BOARD THE BULLET FOR MARY CELEBRATION COMING SOON
The Mary Valley community has issued an open invitation to celebrate the Mary Valley with a special "Board the Bullet for Mary" train ride on Saturday 17th October 2009.
"Central to our whole campaign, has always been a celebration of the uniqueness of the Mary River and the resilience of its people. The Board the Bullet for Mary train ride is another event which will give the broader community a chance to enjoy the beautiful countryside, delicious food and local musical talent," explained David Kreutz, secretary of the Save the Mary River Coordinating Group.
"The events of the last couple of weeks have only served to heighten our resolve to fight on and prevent the death of our internationally significant river. Saturday the 17th will be a chance for us to put the politics aside and have a fun night," concluded Mr Kreutz.
The celebration begins at 4pm with a performance by the James Nash string quartet and complimentary champagne at the Mary Valley Heritage Train Station in Tozer St Gympie. The train will depart at 4:30pm, destined for Kandanga.
"Just before dusk we will arrive in Kandanga where a delicious alfresco dinner will be served, accompanied by local musicians including Alan Kelly from the Barley Shakes, " explained event organizer Adrienne McVerry.
Ms McVerry continued, "It's going to be a really special evening and we invite the wider community to join us in celebrating both the Mary River and our local heritage railway. Thanks goes to The Mary Valley Heritage Railway for their support."
The cost of the evening is $40 which includes a complimentary pre-dinner drink, musical entertainment, train fare and dinner. A bar will be open at Kandanga to purchase drinks.
The train will depart Kandanga to arrive back at Gympie station by 11pm.
