THE grounds of the Dimbulah Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) hall were filled to the brim as they hosted a Memorial Tree Planting Ceremony, honouring two outstanding ladies and their memories. 

The ceremony took place last Saturday, March 20 for Maria Dalla Lana and Maria Murador who were stalwart members of the Dimbulah QCWA for many years. 

Both Mrs Dalla Lana and Mrs Murador have recently passed away, however their passion and drive remains imbedded within the Dimbulah QCWA and broader community. 

They would participate in events, fundraise, and make sure that no one left one of their events without first buying a ticket for their many raffles. 

Mrs Dalla Lana and Mrs Murador held over 50 years of experience volunteering for the QCWA between them and several committee positions over 12 years.

The families of both Mrs Dalla Lana and Mrs Murador were invited along to see the unveiling of the plaques and to plant the trees. 

Mareeba Shire Council Mayor Angela Toppin was present on the day to unveil the plaque and say a few words in memory of the two ladies.

“Both ladies were stalwarts of the Dimbulah QCWA, they dedicated many hours towards this organisation,” she said.

“I cannot recall a time when I attended a community event in Dimbulah when these ladies were not fundraising for the QCWA.

“This is a very special recognition for the massive contribution made by these ladies."
