Cora is our Miss Showgirl

RECENT Tweed Valley Banana Festival Queen entrant Cora O'Grady of Condong was yesterday announced as Miss Showgirl for the 2004 Tweed River Agricultural Society's 104th annual show.

Cora was selected as the Tweed River Agricultural Society/Hammercrete Showgirl after passing criteria set by show organisers and will go on to represent the Tweed in North Coast divisional showgirl quest later this year.

Show society president Jenny Glasby said Cora would be officially introduced to up to 150 show sponsors at a gala dinner on October 27.

Cora, who works at the Greenhills Lodge Nursing Home, will carry out a number of official duties at the show on November 5 and 6 and has won a prize of a three-day holiday at Couran Cove Resort on South Stradbroke Island.

A "country girl" at heart, she said she was part of the well-known 'Norris clan' around Murwillumbah.

"My grandmother had 17 children so she half populated this area," she added.
