Chronicle celebrate birthday bash

HOW many people get invited to a 150th birthday party?

On the Fraser Coast the answer is everyone.

The Fraser Coast Chronicle officially turns 150 on Sunday, November 21, and to celebrate we are staging a champagne toast and entertainment night at Maryborough City Hall.

The celebration night will be on Friday, November 19, just days before our birthday, and for just $35 you can join the party where the champagne, refreshments and light food platters will flow.

The proud history of the voice of the district will be on show and entertainment throughout the night will help keep the party going.

The cost of the ticket has been subsidised by the paper as a way of expressing our gratitude to the community for its support over 150 years.

Chronicle editor Peter Chapman encouraged everyone to come along and promised an entertaining night.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime party and any profits from the night will be donated to charity,” he said.

“Of course there is a limit on the numbers so please contact Mandie Houston at the Chronicle office as soon as you can to reserve your place.”

Mandie can be contacted directly on 4120 1002.
