It's great when small town community organisations can get together and pool resources! This is what is happening with a joint Millmerran Museum, Arts Council, and Yallambee Auxillary event presenting the long-awaited opening of the Museum's restoration project: Water Baby and Life on the Condamine Flood Plain Exhibit - and the Mother's Day Markets. We have the Scouts and Lions on board, lots of great food and drinks and an eclectic bunch of market stalls... and many VIPs coming for the celebrations. The popular Huckelberry Gin and Gary Fogarty will entertain. LexArt Studio will be there with a children's painting workshop.
