SIXTY people recently gathered at the Boulders Tavern for the third reunion of the Babinda Teens of the 1960s and 1970s.
People travelled from Sydney, Townsville, Mareeba, Cairns, Innisfail, and Babinda to be part of the celebrations.
Before lunch, people mingled and there was a photo album of previous reunions and old photos to peruse.
Sharmayne Mitchell, the sole organiser of all three reunions, who has been living in Cairns for over 40 years, said Facebook and social media platforms had been most useful for tracking down people and communication.
After lunch photos were taken and then about 40 attendees convened at the Babinda State Hotel where the celebrations continued.
Everyone chatted, reminisced, and shared stories. It was a great day of reconnecting with friends from their teenage years, some of whom they had not seen since leaving school.
The first reunion was held in 2013, when the teenagers of 1960s were celebrating their milestone 60th birthdays.
The next reunion, which took place in 2019, was for the ‘Class of 1969’ and teenagers who grew up in the 1960s and 1970s in the Babinda district.
Another reunion is planned to be held in two years’ time when the Babinda Teens will be turning 70.
