Summer break

As the temperatures soar on the Darling Downs in December and January, the Toowoomba Field Nats usually don't have any outings in these months. However we always gather to review the past year and welcome the new one. This year we went to Stockyard Creek Hall for our Christmas break-up. The people there put on a lovely lunch of locally obtained produce and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

We gathered under the shade before the feast and it was time to catch up and even do a little birdwatching.

We had a delicious lunch in convivial surrounds, and Michael had organized a speaker. Pam Hahn is the daughter of the Field Nats' first President, Robert Angus Moncrief. She gave a heartfelt talk about her father and his involvement with many Toowoomba organizations. She certainly fleshed out the man as most of us only know him as a name.
