Welcome to the North Burnett page.

To reflect the membership of the Eidsvold-Cracow Branch it has been decided to rename the branch North Burnett Branch.

The inaugural meeting was held on the 18th February 1979, at a place called Cains Corner which is halfway between Eidsvold and Cracow. It is simply a place beside the road full of dirt, dust and bush, but it is recalled with fondness by the inaugural members.

Here it was decided to call the new branch the Eidsvold/Cracow Branch. Many later meetings were held at Cains Corner and stories abound of dusty minutes and even an unfortunate dingo who donated his scalp for the good of ICPA, and for this we still have a receipt!!

The first President was Mrs June Hartwig whose idea it was to form a local branch of ICPA. On the 19th June 1993, June Hartwig received her Life Membership from the then Secretary Denise Campbell. Her support, dedication and enthusiasm have always been behind the branch and continues to this day.

Over the years Eidsvold/Cracow ICPA has sent delegates to several Federal Conferences and many State Conferences.

Our main fundraisers have been catering, including fun days, National Party dinners and Field Days. In 1990 a fund raising day was held to assist Charleville School of the Air in rebuilding after the floods.

Today our branch remains active and involved despite having a relatively small population of 11 families.Our main fundraiser is catering at the Camboon Campdraft and we are planning an Anniversary Dinner for our 25th year on the 28th February 2004.

ICPA is not only about helping the children who are isolated but also helping their isolated mothers. Who in ICPA doesn't look forward to the meetings simply for their social aspect. There have been many memorable morning teas and lunches and hopefully, at 25 years, the Eidsvold/Cracow Branch is only half-way there!!
