Thanks for eisteddfod memories
IT'S SAD to see another successful Gympie Eisteddfod coming to an end after showcasing the great work and talent of the Gympie region's young people.
The Eisteddfod has always been an event locals have pencilled into their diary and to many it is the highlight of the year.
It's no wonder, over the years the event has seen many talented people grace the stage, this year was no exception.
I can remember back to the halcyon days of Gympie Central Primary School, marching down the hill in double file toward the Civic Centre to compete in the schools singing and verse speaking choirs. I would rather have been kicking a ball around then, but I benefited from the experience.
My own children also learnt how to speak in front of people and gained confidence through performing at Eisteddfods.
But this all wouldn't happen if it wasn't for the hard working volunteers that bring the Eisteddfod together each year.
To them The Gympie Times thanks you for your fantastic contribution to the community.
