[email protected] are collecting oral histories by way of anecdotal short stories experienced by the people of Toowoomba during and after the recent floods. These may include bush ballads, poems, the unusual, and the bizarre.
While we acknowledge the heartbreak and suffering of those who lost loved ones, animals, homes and effects, this compilation is intended to pay tribute to the Aussie Battler spirit that will rise above it.
The finished product is neither for profit or a fund-raising exercise. It is intended to merely assemble this ledger so that it may be lodged in the local libraries as a community memory of this historic, and hopefully, once in a lifetime event.
If you would like to contribute something that fits the criteria listed above, please contact:
Subject: Battered but not Beaten.
*The uplifting catch phrase used by Premier Anna Bligh throughout the ordeal.
