Beaudesert's Legendairy party draws in community support

BEAUDESERT’S Legendairy party was in full swing as decorated cut-out cows were revealed to the community. 

The weekend event celebrated the town being named as the Legendairy Capital of the Subtropical region.

About 150 people attended, to celebrate the town being recognised as one of Australia’s most resilient and innovative communities.

The party was held at St Mary’s Primary School on Saturday, August 26.

Jigsaw drawings, cut-out flowers with messages and yellow ‘chicken’ feathers were some of the designs displayed during the grand parade of cut-out cows.

Guests also signed party cow Betty in show of support of the event.

Speeches were made by Daughters of Dairy Farmers member Lisa Harrison and dairy farmer Brian Cox, who nominated the town as a Legendairy Capital.

The speakers discussed topics such as why Mr Cox submitted the Legendairy Capital application for Beaudesert, the economic importance of dairy farmers and the $1 milk cycle.

Ms Harrison said she and Mr Cox thanked the community for being a part of the project.

“We are so Legendairy because of their resilience, passion and the support our community shows to the dairy farmers,” she said.

Ms Harrison said she was thrilled to see how much effort the community made to thank the farmers who gifted them with cut-out cows.

“It was so great to see the farmers with business and school representatives socialising at the party,” she said.

“That was what it was all about – connecting people in the community together.”
