‘Mrs Goomeri’ honoured by show society

AFTER the shocking death of one of Goomeri's hardest working and best-known volunteers, the show society has named the new pavilion in her honour.

Pam Brunjes died in February after a crash on the Wide Bay Hwy.

Niece Amanda McArthur said her death had impacted not only her loved ones but everyone in Goomeri.

"She was pretty special to me," she said.

Pam had been in the show society for more than four decades.

"She was never too busy to lend a hand," Ms McArthur said.

The society said naming the pavilion after Pam was appropriate as she opened it last year.

The sign was built using timber from Pam's cattle yards.

Daughter Fiona Pilgrim said her mum loved the Goomeri Show.

"She would be humbled to have the pavilion named after her," she said.

Fiona said her mum used to say being involved in the show was what she did to make Goomeri a better place to live.

Fiona said there were numerous people in the show society who had been encouraged to join by her mother.

She said she her mum would have been humbled to have the pavilion named in her honour.

"To be used by the community to love and enjoy and fill with pavlova and patchwork for many years to come," she said.
