Parade of purple takes preparation


OCTOBER may seem a long way off but preparations are already under way for the 2006 Jacaranda Festival, and nominations are open for Jacaranda Queen, Matron of Honour and Junior Jacaranda Queen candidates.

If you have ever considered becoming a Jacaranda Queen candidate, why not step up to the challenge this year and enjoy a truly memorable Jacaranda 2006.

All candidates are encouraged and assisted during the quest in their fundraising by the Jacaranda Committee, so you do not do it all on your own. For more information or nomination forms for Jacaranda Queen or Matron of Honour please call the Jacaranda office on 66423959.

The Junior Jacaranda Queen Quest is open to girls aged 10-14 years, and all candidates will be involved in a number of functions leading up to and during Jacaranda Week.

Nominations for the junior quest opened today and forms are available from the Commonwealth Bank in Grafton. However, only the first 14 nominations can be accepted so be quick.
