Town celebrates its history
FORMER timber industry workers from across the Northern Rivers and beyond will gather in Kyogle at the weekend for a reunion.
Several hundred people are expected to attend the event, which will include a book launching, a ball and a static display and exhibition of timber industry machinery and equipment, as well as hundreds of photographs.
The celebrations at the Kyogle Memorial Institute kick off at 10.30am on Saturday with the book launching.
Two leather-bound copies of the book, Ramblings of the Timber Industry, signed by the authors and some of the characters featured in the book, will be auctioned.
The ball will be held on Saturday night and will feature the music of Check 2.
The celebrations will continue on Sunday, with the static display and exhibition at the Kyogle Memorial Institute. It will open between 10am and 2pm. Admission is $2.
