150 candles for Rocky
PLANNING for Rockhampton's 150th birthday will soon begin.
Rockhampton City Council plan to celebrate the city's 150 years of European settlement in style.
A planning committee will be established to co-ordinate the event.
It will include Mayor Margaret Strelow, Councillors Cherie Rutherford, Rose Swadling and Graeme Brady and three council officers.
The milestone ? also known as the sesquicentenary ? will be celebrated later this year.
