Cow Race will milk funds for chaplains

MALENY Dairies are doing another Cow Race for charity.

The event, formerly called Maleny's Milkin' It For Charity, is on March 4 at the dairy to raise much-needed funds for the Maleny and Conondale chaplains, who offer support to the community in times of need and for general life.

The afternoon features live music, food, drinks and competitions.

Do your best job of decorating your gum boots, with prizes to be won for the best designs.

Hinterland markets

MARKETS can be found this weekend all over the Coast, with an amazing array of fresh produce, crafts, clothes, recycled products, plus breakfast, cold drinks and coffees.

Why not rediscover the Eumundi Markets, or perhaps Maleny Fresh Produce Markets.
