Community called on to help give Slade House a facelift
AFTER many years of sitting idle, the historic Slade House is getting a makeover and the community is getting behind it.
On November 10, Warwick Christian College is hosting a community fundraising dinner in the Slade Dining Hall to help raise funds to restore the house.
College principal Terrence McCorkell said many local businesses had already donated a range of items which will be auctioned off on the night.
"People are already purchasing places at the dinner," Mr McCorkell said.
"A three course dinner on the night is only $50 and if you buy a table of eight you only pay for seven."
Slade House was built in the very early 1900s and will soon celebrate its 100th birthday.
Having been the silent witness to a long history on the site, the college is looking forward to helping the community breathe new life into the homestead.
Members of the community or community groups wishing to book a table for the night should call the college on 4661 7554 or download an invitation from the college website at warwickcc.qld.edu.au.
