Museum awards finalist

ONE Granite Belt community group is being acknowledged for their hard work and dedication after being named as a national finalist in the That’s Life! Community Hearts Awards.

Stanthorpe and Districts Historical Museum Society has been selected as a finalist, with the community group home to the largest collection of artefacts in a community museum.

The volunteer staff were outlined as always being welcoming and ready to help, with researchers coming from far and wide to access the extensive records held at the museum.

Now is the community’s chance to get behind the outstanding community group and vote for them to go into the running to win the $10,000 prize.

That’s Life! editor Linda Smith said the awards were in their second year and recognised community groups who worked endlessly to make our country so great.

“From literally hundreds of entries, That’s Life! is excited to recognise these 10 community groups who work endlessly at providing much-needed services to their local communities,” she said.

“It is groups like these that make a valuable contribution to all our lives.”

Readers can vote for their favourite group online ( www.thatslife.com.au), via SMS (1974 42 02) or fill in the entry form published in issue 16 and 17 of That’s Life!. Entries close April 30.
