Rockton takes us back in time.....

What a beautiful setting for a market, and what a great way to celebrate Q150, in the
gardens of the timeless "Rockton".

After an evening of elegance held the previous night and lots of nervous anticipation for those involved in organising the events, we could all enjoy the beautiful sunshine and the talent
that our many stall holders put on display.

As promised the QLD Costumers Guild was in fine form.
Modeling a selection of beautiful dresses from a time when
Rockton was just settling into its footings.

With lots of stalls, there were even activities for the kids.
Nothing like spending a little time colouring in with the children.

Above our mayor Paul Pisasales can be seen enjoying some time with
Makayla Smart and friends at the Peg & Kate colouring table.
Doesn't he do a wonderful job nursing that baby doll.

Outfits worn by the QLD Costumers Guild are all handmade by the ladies wearing them. Now that's some serious sewing. Stunning!

And any Queensland day out wouldn't be complete without some scrumptious lamingtons. I certainly made sure I purchased my supply. Although sadly they didnt last long enough to see me through my second cuppa.

Thank you to the many women from the Ipswich Girls Grammar School Old Girls Association for your efforts. And thank you to Angela and Wybe Geertsma for opening their home. Hopefully this will be an annual event. I know I'll be there.
