Beta Epsilon was chartered on 11 December 1975. During their inception, the key state project was "Ride for Life" which raised money for cancer research. Bike riders with support crew rode from Cairns to the Gold Coast (1800 km) raising money for cancer as the riders were billeted by ESA branches along the way.
One of the first programs Gin Gin formed is the Gin Gin State High School Bursary for year 11 students. It is an encouragement award, influencing the students to stay in school and complete year 12. Forty Years ears later, this award is still being utilized.
The list goes on and on for what the Gin Gin ladies support within their community. They are also involved with the Driver Reviver program where motorists can enjoy a cuppa with the ladies as the weary drivers break their long journey with a rest and great conversation.
Beta Epsilon can be seen assisting in all types of educational programs such as Girl Guides, Scouts, Junior Football, Little Athletics, Gin Gin Kindergarten, Driver Education Programs and the Gin Gin Schools Chaplaincy. They can also be found in the town of Kolan helping at the swimming pool as well as the Kolan Gardens Care Facility.
It is obvious to say that Beta Epsilon ladies have hearts of gold and willing to help their neighbours in need. Their contributions do not just stay within their community. They are equal to the rest of the Queensland members helpinig out with Daffodil Day, Lavender for Leukaemia, and the Greatest Morning Tea.
Beta Epsilon members were key elements in making the Queensland's 50th Celebration such a sensation. Being so close to our celebration site of Childers, Qld (the location of ESA Australia's first branch), they were instrumental in planning, catering, and supporting the event with much hard work and deserve to be recognized for the success of the event.
