NEARLY 250 friends got together on Saturday night at the Dairy Reunion Dinner organised by Dairy Showgirl entrant Krystle Johnston.

"It was quite a success," she said of the night to raise money for the Gympie Show.

"I'm very happy with the turn out. We caught up with a lot of family and friends," she said.

The idea to host a reunion came from Krystle's dad, Stan Johnston - who owns the famous Craiglea stud at Kenilworth.

And chief Dairy Steward Ray Zerner "went with it".

"There hasn't been a get together for people to catch up. It worked out well. Thankyou to everyone who made it on the night. It was great to see everyone come out and support me. I hope they had a good time."

Mr Zerner said it was great to see so many people at the event.

"Everyone enjoyed themselves," he said.

Six dairy heifer calves sold at the reunion dinner ranging from $600 to $800, all money goes to the Gympie Show, and Ray Priebe the guest speaker kept the audience entertained with his tall tales.
