WEENGALLON, 150km west of Goondiwindi and 65km south-east of St George, is like so many other little towns dotted along the outback highways.
The locals are descendants of the first settlers who rode out on push bikes and horses to clear the scrub and build a future for their families on the land.
The oldies in the district still fondly remember the golden years when Weengallon was a major social hub.
It had a drive-in picture theatre, a thriving general store and a two-teacher school.
Now just the church and hall remain.
But what still does exist is a strong community of proactive country women.
They are the women behind the enormously successful charity event, the Weengallon Pink Ladies Day.
In a salute to Weengallon turning 100 this year, the Weengallon Pink Ladies Day will have a vintage-themed day on August 28.
The Weengallon Pink Ladies Day raised $30,000 last year, which went towards Cancer Council Queensland's new Olive McMahon Lodge in Toowoomba, and this year they are hoping to do as well or better.
The day will include cocktails, stalls to peruse and a gourmet smorgasbord lunch.
Over lunch, guest speaker Raelene Boyle, the legendary Australian sprinter and breast cancer survivor, will tell her story.
The day culminates with the exciting decorative "bra art auction".
Tickets are $40 and can be purchased through the website, pinkladiesday.com or by emailing Kelli Morse at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Numbers are limited to 500. For more information, please phone Kellie Mitchell on 07 4677 1172.
