Some dressed up St. Patrick’s style, wearing a lot of green, and others got lucky with lucky shamrocks and raffles. Visitors were able to purchase sweets, books, jams, chutneys, sauces, pot plants and much more. Kids had plenty of time to burn a bit of energy on a jumping castle and have their faces painted. Prep R, Year 4 and Year 5 students from St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School were part of They carefully compiled lists of festivities for the open air concert where they performed a few everyone, from the musically inclined to the songs.

Religious For many, gallons of Guinness and a green leafy Shamrock, might be all that’s required to celebrate St Patrick’s Day, but Chinchilla Catholic Church Parish Committee makes a fantastic effort every year in organizing Family Fun Afternoon to mark St Patrick’s Day.

symbols include serpents, snakes and the Celtic cross. A legend of St Patrick is the adding of the sun, a great Irish symbol, onto the Christian cross to form the Celtic cross. The Leprechaun, and the pot of gold he keeps hidden away, is the mythical creature also presented as symbols on this day. The Harp, a musical instrument used in Ireland for many centuries, is another symbol used by people celebrating the St Patrick’s festivities. This definitely was the perfect event for anyone looking for St. Patrick’s Day fun in the tradition of happiness and the Irish spirit. Aja O’Leary

Run, support and raise Whilst a small number of the rivers and creeks may be flowing again, some farmers are doing it tough, both financially and emotionally. They face the reality of no money, no income, no food or water for livestock and limited support from the government. There needs to be change. Feed the Farmers Fun Run was a perfect chance to lace up those runners and hit the Chinchilla pavements for an afternoon out with your family and friends. Congratulations to Jennie Downham and her team of helpers, who should be very proud of bringing this event to Chinchilla. Their passion and enthusiasm to bring awareness to everyone in Chinchilla regarding this situation is inspiring and so typical of that great Aussie bush spirit. A Big ‘Thank you’ goes to all energetic and passionate individuals who signed up and made the commitment to raise muchneeded funds. A total of 81 runners, including 21 children (and a couple of dogs) all determined to make a difference, took part in the 5 km run/walk in support of drought-affected farmers across Queensland and managed to raise a stunning $1661. Some even got into the spirit and dressed up as a Farmer! Continued page 8.

From the Editor Babies, babies everywhere! Especially in our office at the moment; Amelia, who has been designing the Jandowae Mill and Miles Lily for us, is now on maternity leave for a year. We wish her the best of luck and we will miss her happy face in the office. On a positive note though, Amy is back! Seems she couldn’t stay away from us and has joined us as a freelancer, taking on the Dalby Harvest and the Tara & District Magazine. I will be on maternity leave myself from next month, but as there is no rest for the wicked, I will be back for the July Editions. In the meantime Kate, Karel and Amy will be holding the fort here at the office. We have a some wonderful events covered in this month’s edition and keep an eye out in next month’s magazine for our Chinchilla Show Feature! Thank you to all the wonderful local businesses who have come on board already to support this feature and allow the Show to be advertised in such detail.

The Barleyshakes Brewed in Ireland and distilled in Australia, the Barleyshakes is a Celtic band with world music influences, who combine intense energy, beautiful harmony and driving dance rhythms in their live performances. Adored throughout Australia and beyond for their “bent” Irish sound, when they perform in trio format, their sound is pure acoustic joy. The Chinchilla Arts Council will be hosting a cabaret style concert with The Barleyshakes at Chinchilla RSL on Thursday, 15th May. Front man, Alan Kelly, is from Dublin and Alan is known throughout Australia for his passionate and humorous performances. Alan is a remarkable exponent of the Irish drum, having appeared on the ‘Lord of the Rings’ soundtrack. Steve Cook, recent winner of a “Golden Fiddle Award” at Tamworth, plays mandolin, banjo, and fiddle. Completing the trio is Brisbane born Kristin Kelly; this talented and tasty fiddler has travelled the world learning many different folk styles before settling in Ireland for a few years to form the Barleyshakes and really get to know the Celtic style.

“They’ve always done it that way but with each new album, those bonds are strengthened and illuminated in ways that make you wonder where they will take them next. Their latest album “Grateful” is beautifully recorded, spacious and filled with scintillating musical conversations.”

Artworks on display will have a minimum of 25% black derivative or its tones, such as Paynes Grey or Blue Black, in its colour scheme. The rest of the artwork can be whatever hue the artist or craftworker so desires!

exhibition will be opened on Friday, 2nd May, at infrastructure! If you are interested, then please 6:30pm. contact Helen on 46689908 or 46627514 a/h.

Kids on Tour The Chinchilla White Gums Art Gallery is pleased to bring the latest ‘Kids on Tour’ activities from the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art. Artist, Cai Guo-Qiang, whose exhibition ‘Falling Back to Earth’ is currently on display at the Gallery of Modern Art, has developed several creative activities specifically for kids. He invites kids to create their own trees, boats, and animals. There is an opportunity for bridge building with bamboo. As well as artwork, kids can view some of Cai Guo-Qiang’s work on video and read a book about his life as a child. The activities will be available for free at the Kids’ Creative Corner for the month of April. No bookings necessary! All you need is a kid and a parent!

The exhibition is not just about showcasing artworks. It is also about enabling our local community artisans to experience Art Gallery life, by being taken on a journey through the processes needed to have an exhibition. This process included information about the Art Gallery, how to submit an exhibition proposal, and finally, detailing works and writing an Artist’s Statement and CV. All of these details are Art Gallery Happenings included in the exhibition catalogue.

Have you noticed that we are trialling new Gallery opening hours? The influx of volunteers for front desk duties has enabled us to extend into Tuesday nights (7am to 9pm) and Sundays (10am to 2pm). So if you don’t have time to visit us during the week, then try the weekend or on Tuesday nights. Eight local artists turned up for the first meeting of the emerging Artists’ Group. We talked about our art and where we would like to be in five years’ time, artistically, of course! The group meets every fourth Tuesday night at the gallery at 7pm. If you are interested in becoming a professional artist, or want more from your art, then please join us.

The Chinchilla Historical Society volunteers are wanting to encourage more families and organizations to use the facilities that the Museum has to offer.

The Pelican Rural Fire Brigade successfully combined its Annual Pelican Cup Show and Shine & Car Boot Sale with the Centenary of the Pelican Hall. Mighty fine weather was given from above to Pelican Hall, 888 Burra Burri Creek Road, Pelican (cca 30kms N/E of Chinchilla town) on Saturday, 22nd March and many grabbed an opportunity to be a part of the 3rd edition of this annual event. The day kicked off at 8 am, running until 2 pm and was jampacked with things to do and see. A lovely photo display of abundant history, around the Hall, was put together thanks to the community’s input. Prizes for the best three photos were awarded to Nancy Dolbel, Lina Sells and Beryl Bell. Well done, ladies! Multi-draw raffle, home made crafty stalls and bargain car boot sale were also a big part of the day. Kids definitely got very busy jumping on a massive jumping castle and most could not resist taking a peacock feather or two home. Classic cars rolled in for an event that offered something for car enthusiasts, young and old. Chinchilla Auto & Motor Group also supported the fundraiser for the local Rural Fire Brigade, by polishing and bringing a few cars to the show. It gave all the participating members an excellent chance to take their cars on the road and to show them off, just because they’re not ordinary “daily” cars. The vehicles spread out across the grass and were judged as Pelican Cup People’s Choice. Trophy category included Best Car and Best Ute. First prize was presented to George Lattimore and his 1953 Black Ford Customline, Scot Hordern and his yellow 1973 XB Falcon Fairmont Coupe came second with Cameron Gray and his blue 1967 Chev Impala taking home third prize.

Roy Wood’s blue 1965 XP Falcon Ute was awarded as Best Ute. It was a great event for the whole family and it was nice to take a step back and enjoy the day out of town where there was something for everyone. Organisers are hoping to get bigger next year. If you have a Classic car you would love to show to the world, please join in. You don’t have to be a member of a car club to enter. Everyone is welcome! Aja O’Leary

Upcoming Events 2014 Burrandowan Picnic Races One event that makes the most of the dry weather is racing – and racing is in the air at this time of year! In May, there is one place to be with your hat and jacket – Burrandowan Picnic Races on Saturday 10th May. One of the few traditional picnic race meetings left in southern Queensland, Burrandowan’s bush setting is the perfect backdrop for a great weekend. Kicking off the day with the clay target shoot at 9am, many have also moved into their campsites well before lunchtime, setting up prime location for people watching – oh, and to see the horses. By first race, the atmosphere has always built up – there are fabulous hats, sharp suits, high heels and laughter all around as young and old gather of a great day of racing.

Saturday 10th May 2014

Picnic tables are out, the Clovely bubbles are flowing, and the food stalls do brisk business. The five race program and interstate betting give you a great chance to survey the horses and make a bet, while the Fashions of the Field provide entertainment and are easy on the eye between the races. Burrandowan race club president, Brendan McCormack, loves race day – the culmination of a year’s work. “Our voluntary committee spend the year planning the day and it comes around quickly and we love seeing people from the city and the bush having a fabulous time,” he explained. “It’s a great day out with friends and family – people come back year after year knowing the atmosphere is fantastic and they will really enjoy themselves. “The only downside to the day is how quickly the evening comes along, so then it’s time to get your steak at cook it on the pit fired barbecues – don’t forget your barbecue tools!” The band Stunt Pig, will again play crowd favourites to keep you dancing well into the night; the dance floor is one for the stars! Well, is under a million stars, anyway! Bring something warm for the evening as the race track temperature is beautiful by day but cold in the evening when you stop dancing or move away from the fires. There are plenty of food outlets from local community groups, and please don’t bring BYO alcohol – the Durong South State School P&C will be on hand serving cold beer, bubbles and your favourite mix. Arrive in plenty of time to enjoy all the action and bring your swag as camping is free on Saturday night. To get to the race track, head to Durong, and follow the signs to Burrandowan Road off the Chinchilla Wondai Road. All inquiries head to www.burrandowan.com.au or find us on Facebook – www.facebook.com/burrandowanpicnicraces Burrandowan Picnic Races

Community Dalby Quilting & Appliqué

Gardening Tips for April

Dalby Quilting and Applique Club is very pleased to announce that international quilter and artist Gloria Loughman is coming to Dalby on the 17 and 18th May to conduct a workshop ‘Light Up Your Landscape’.

This is a good time of year to start preparing for winter and spring flowers, bulbs and vegetables. Hyacinth, ranunculus, daffodil and jonquil bulbs can all be planted in April. To get them growing as quickly as possible, feed them with a specialised fertiliser such as Yates Bulb Food at planting time to give them an extra boost.

Although based in Australia, Gloria spends most of her teaching time overseas where her workshops are highly sought after. Gloria has not taught in this area before and we are pleased to offer all quilters and/ or patchworkers the opportunity to learn new techniques and styles including fusing, invisible machine applique, free motion stitching and quilting techniques. Participants will be able to design their own wall hanging working from a photo, sketch or picture. The workshop is suitable for new and experienced quilters. The cost for the two day workshop will be $75 and you are encouraged to book early as there will be limited places. The DQAC is able to bring Gloria to Dalby and offer these reduced rates thanks to a grant from the Regional Arts Development Fund. The Dalby Quilting and Applique Club meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month with morning tea at 9.30am and a meeting to follow at 10am above Anthony’s Fabrics. We welcome new and interested sewers. Many of our members have a great wealth of experience which they are always willing to share.

April is also a good time to sow foxglove, delphinium, cornflower and calendula seeds. Pansies, violas and lobelias can be planted now as well and look beautiful in hanging baskets to add a burst of colour. Vegetables to plant this month include: broad beans, snow peas, beetroot, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, onions, parsnip and spinach. To avoid fruit fly, don’t forget to hang a fruit fly trap nearby to your vegetable garden and citrus trees. Also, to prevent brown rot fungus, remove all mummified fruit from stone fruit trees and spray with Bordeaux mixture at leaf fall. As water supplies are diminishing due to the severe drought that we are experiencing, it is important to take the appropriate steps to ensure your garden is able to retain as much moisture as possible. Always keep your gardens well mulched with a good quality mulch such as Sugarcane, Tea Tree, Lucerne or Cypress Mulch. Not only will this assist with water retention, but it will also prevent weeds from growing. Eco-hydrate and Penetraide can also be watered on to help with deep water penetration.

Come and join us.

Business Justin Ma – Wedding Photographer Raised in the small city of Townsville, North QLD, Justin has been based in Brisbane for the past 9 years and travels Australia wide and internationally as a professional photographer. His work has been mainly focussed on fashion, photojournalism, portraiture and weddings. “I love many areas of photography. Shooting all these different genres has helped me refine my technical skill as well as shaping my style of work. I always draw and combine inspiration from all genres of photography in my work”.

Justin Ma – Wedding Photographer

Before any photoshoot Justin always tries to get to know the client and what they would like to get out of the photos. This is very important to achieve photos that are unique and personal. It is also good way to help the client relax as most of the time it will be their first experience in front of a camera. He doesn’t like to do photos that are too over posed, he tries to keep the photos as natural as possible and will always help by giving direction, “All photos require at least a tiny bit of posing, however I try to keep it as relaxed as I can. Especially when photographing couples it’s all about capturing the little moments that show their connections with one another.” He also likes to shoot on location as a studio setting can be too intimidating and artificial looking for a lot of people. With any of Justin’s photo packages you will receive magazine quality edited high resolution images on disc of the best shots from the day. He also offers prints, framing and personalized hardcover photo books.

Justin’s first camera was his mum’s 1982 Nikon FG, coincidentally bought the same year he was born. But it wasn’t until he was in university midway through a psychology degree that he discovered his love for photography as a means for creative expression. It didn’t take him long to then transfer into a Bachelor of Photography which he graduated from after 3yrs. As soon as he completed his degree he moved down to Brisbane to pursue work and since then he has visited many places around Australia and the After recently photographing a lovely couple from Dalby, he is now organizing some dates to world with his photography. come out and offer his services. “I really enjoy His first photography job was in a portrait shooting in the wide open spaces in the country, studio in Brisbane.

Education Kokoda Challenge 2014 has started with groans and sore muscles for Chinchilla State High School’s Kokoda Challengers, as they start their preparation for a 30km trek in May. At this stage, there are approximately 20 teams of dedicated students and teachers signed up and registered for the Toowoomba challenge. They have been lucky enough to procure the generous services of Healthy U personal trainer, Amanda Bell, who has designed a rigorous training program to prepare them for the challenges that a 30km hike up and down the Toowoomba range will present. Lunchtime training sessions are being held as well as morning fitness sessions. It has been great to see the number of students regularly attending these sessions and motivating their team members through the many squats, burpees and mountain climbers required! In a month’s time the students and teachers will begin training with backpacks! “There is no glory in practice, but without practice, there is no glory”. Chinchilla State High School

Health & Beauty Urgent Chemical Alert! Your Health is at Serious Risk! Last month I covered the need for adequate sleep and the negative effect it can have on your health, right from your physical wellbeing through to mental health. If you missed this, I encourage you to take a look at last month’s magazine. This month I am putting the spotlight on a very serious issue, preservatives. Now I know that some of you are thinking, “I have heard it all before”, however, this issue is much more wide spread than you think. We are talking about not only food and drink but cleaning products, beauty products, personal care items; anything that can be absorbed, inhaled or ingested might be

putting your health at risk. Preservatives come in many forms, shapes and sizes. They are used to prevent a product from expiring, going off, rotting, or to becoming ineffective. They can be used in food and drink, your shampoo, shaving cream, toothpaste, makeup, dishwashing liquid, soap and just about anything that you consume in your home. In 2013 a study by Anand and Sati called Artificial Preservatives And Their Harmful Effects: Looking Toward Nature For Safer Alternatives was released giving conclusive evidence about the detrimental effects preservatives can have on your health. So you might be asking, “then why is it on our shop shelves?” The answer is simply that there is not enough restrictive laws around our consumables. The study revealed a number of harmful side effects but the most alarming was that “preservatives such as nitrates, benzoates, sulfites, sorbates, parabens, formaldehyde, BHT, BHA and several others can cause serious health hazards such as hypersensitivity, allergy, asthma, hyperactivity, neurological damage and cancer.” “In young children temper tantrums and disruptive behaviour” were observed. As well as “the use of these toxic chemicals by pregnant

30 April

women may adversely affect foetal brain development.” “Toxins like these can cause DNA damage to sperm”. Although it doesn’t stop there, other causes include “severe allergic reactions and exacerbation of asthma”; “neurological damage in rats”; skin, eye and lung irritation and allergies. However, there is a silver lining; the study also concluded that “natural preservatives offer greater advantages over their artificial counterparts due to their non-toxic nature along with a wide range of health benefits.” With BioGro’s Organic Certification you can guarantee that the products you purchase from Chanzar Organics are free of chemical preservatives. Instead we use air tight food grade tubes to store our products which reduces the need for preservatives entirely. Start looking through your home and begin eliminating things with ingredients such as sorbate, butylate, propionate and the big one PARABEN! I Chantahl Stedman Chanzar Organics


Health & Beauty Autumn Makeover Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate! Sunny summer days equal sun damage on our skin. Also, the use of non-mineral sunscreens can cause a greasy build up on the skin. Fall is the perfect time to begin an intense exfoliation series such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels to shed all of the dead summer skin cells and reveal a bright, fresh complexion. Don’t have time to go into the dermatologist’s office or spa? No problem, there are various professional intensive exfoliation systems that you can safely use at home. Boost that Hydration! One of the biggest skin complaints during the autumn and winter months is dehydration/ dryness. Since serums and masks have the highest concentration of active ingredients use of one or both will give you quick and noticeable results. It may be necessary to switch your moisturizer to a richer, creamier version as well. Another easy way to increase your skin’s moisture level is simply by using a hydrating

toner before you apply your moisturizer. Apply your moisturizer while your skin is still damp from the toner so that the moisturizer penetrates easier. If you wear mineral makeup you may also spritz your hydrating toner right over your makeup throughout the day. Change your Makeup Colors and/or textures! Since our skin tone tends to lighten 1 or 2 shades during this time of year we should be sure to adjust our makeup accordingly. Be sure to match your shade to your neck/decollete area. Remember that cosmetics expire so toss your last year’s shade and get a fresh replacement (this is your skin we’re talking about!). If you used a tinted moisturizer during the summer or a

light powder, you may like the feel of a creamy liquid foundation now as they tend to be a bit more nourishing. Switch your summer color pallet for a new autumn pallet and be sure to try 100% pure mineral makeup. Visit one of the wonderful beauty salons scattered accross the Downs for some one-onone advice!
