Fundraiser BBQ honours wife
WARWICK resident Bryan Lipp is organising a flood-appeal barbecue at Pioneer Park, Swanfels, on Saturday in memory of his late wife Carmel.
Mrs Lipp died in 2003 after alifetime of involvement in sport and community activities.
The barbecue starts at noon and is to raise funds to help Lockyer Valley residents who were devastated by this month’s flood.
Mr Lipp said he already had sponsorship from Carey Brothers Meats and was seeking support from many businesses and individuals to help raise money for the flood victims.
“Carmel was always keen on helping the community and I want to remember her as we raise funds for the flood appeal,” Mr Lipp said.
“Salvation Army representatives will be at the barbecue and handle the finances for the day.
“We will have some bush activities.
“I used to work at Gatton and played tennis in the Lockyer Valley and it is impossible to imagine the devastation the floods caused.”
He expects people from as far away as Felton and Pittsworth.
Pioneer Park is about 6km from Yangan on Swanfels Road which turns off the Yangan/Killarney Road just west of the Yangan State School.
