Echo turns 35 and You are invited!

This year The Echo turns 35, and to celebrate this momentous anniversary they are putting on The Echo Community Awards – and everyone is invited!

Amid all the nation’s and world’s turmoil, we had the privilege (and extreme difficulty) of judging the Rural Youth Ambassador and Mullumbimby Showgirl Awards for the 110th Mullumbimby Show last weekend.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet 18 young people, tiny tots to young adults, who made us so proud to have them as members of our community.

Rest assured, we can have faith that our future generations are of high calibre and will serve our community very well.

Donna Jenner, Hayley Walker, Neil Farquhar, Mullumbimby

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
