What’s happening with our B150 celebrations?
Plenty! We’re now three months into the Anniversary celebrations with some great events behind us and plenty more to come.
Have you noticed the beautiful banners displaying the B150 logo that have been erected along Burnett and Main streets. BWMCA member John Devers and his daughter Emily created the stunning artwork with the B150 logo representing the beautiful Poinciana bloom so reminiscent of Buderim streets.
Special B150 memorabilia is now available for sale at the Old Post Office and Buderim businesses and is selling well. Call in and see the colourful display and check out the T-shirts that are sporting the colourfoul B150 logo. Let’s see Buderim awash with them for the Back to Buderim Weekend celebrations in May. So many events planned for that special weekend with folks coming from out of town and interstate to catch up with old friends and see the changes that have happened over the years.
Possibly the most exciting visual project to be seen in coming months will be an innovative 12-panel Mural. When complete, the mural will be a visual timeline of Buderim’s history to date with the final panel looking to Buderim’s future. Through the minds and eyes of our children and young people, we’ll have the opportunity to glimpse and share in their ideas for Buderim’s future. Under the auspice of mural artist, David Horton, art students from our local schools will develop the mural with the first panel to appear in the main street next month.
Buderim’s 150th Anniversary will present us with the opportunity to re-connect with our past and define our future as a thriving community. From a social and cultural perspective, the B150 celebrations are geared to enhance and reinforce our pride in all those things that have been achieved to make this special place called Buderim tick.
