Cotton growers converge on Dalby for awards

Cotton growers from across the Darling Downs converged on the town of Dalby to acknowledge their high achievers last week after what was one of their most challenging cotton growing season ever. Congratulations to all the winners who took out Darling Downs Cotton Growers awards at the dinner held last Friday night, August 5, at Mary's Commercial Hotel in Dalby....and Sam and Jenny Bailey loved being part of a great night which had a "Great Gatsby" theme. Sam is pictured at the awards with (back l-r) Leanne and Greg Evans and Jim Ryan; (front l-r) Steph Smart and Bec Ryan.

While in Dalby for the Darling Downs Cotton Awards Sam and Jenny Bailey also spoke at the Waminda, which provides support for people with disabilities in the town. They are pictured above with directors Dale and Tracey Pukallus, manager Stewart Mulligan and chairman of the board Barry Weier; and Sam is pictured below with some of the regular past and present participants in programs at the centre, staff and family members.
