EVERYONE has a story to tell - and the Mary River oral history project wants to hear yours.
They would also be keen to any old photographs and documents or anything at all that can help our region rediscover its origins.
And that, according to organisers of the Looking Forward Looking Back project, is a big part of planning the future.
Mary River Catchment Co-ordinating Committee project officer Tanzi Smith said the project, funded by the federal government's Your Community Heritage Program, is all about "learning from the past to create a better future".
Project organisers have set up a program of open public meetings to enable your story to be preserved, starting tomorrow at 9am at Albert Bowls Club.
