Sisters set sights on citrus sovereign

SISTERS Allie and Molly Emmerton grew up on the Riverton Citrus farm at Gayndah.

They have a deep understanding of the industry driving their community, and an appreciation for the hard working locals behind it.

So they both make strong contenders for Gayndah Orange Festival Queen.

And they're going head-to-head for the title.

"We're most looking forward to seeing all the entrants' floats,” they agreed.

Now working closely with locals through real estate, Molly will represent LJ Hooker Gayndah.

This Saturday Allie, who is representing Gayndah Jockey Club, will be hosting a fundraising "triathlon” for the festival.

The event will tee off at Gayndah Golf Course at 9am.

Teams will then head to the bowls club for six ends before they're invited to take a jab at darts.

"It's something different and it doesn't just involve one community group, but three,” Allie said.

"While promoting and fundraising for the Orange Festival I wanted to find a way to give these clubs some exposure too.

"It can be a struggle for small town clubs to gather interest from new members.”

To get involved contact Allie on 0447 616 173.
