How good was it growing up in Dalby?

MEMORIES were shared and the good old days relived in Dalby over the weekend, as over 80 people attended a special reunion.

'Growing up in Dalby' is a Facebook group that was created less than six months ago, with members of the page gathering in town over the weekend to catch up.

Founder Donna Bell, who now lives in Logan, said the weekend was a success.

"When I grew up out there I had friends that were older, younger, went to state school, catholic school.. So I didn't just want to do a school reunion,” Ms Bell said.

"There were people that came from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Toowoomba, Mackay and someone from Melbourne was going to come up.”

The Facebook group has over 2000 members, far surpassing Ms Bell's expectations.

"I'm so surprised how big the group got so quickly and how many people came to the reunion when it was only five months ago I started the group... I thought I might have 100 members by now.”

The guests had a buffet dinner at the Windsor Hotel on Saturday night, before playing bare foot bowls on the Sunday.

Ms Bell said the groups members are now calling for another reunion.

"Everyone was really happy and enjoyed themselves,” Ms Bell said.

"Everybody's now asking for another reunion next year.”
