If you are ever fortunate enough to find yourself at the Beaumont Community Hall, expect to be greeted with huge smiles from Lyndon Mickel and his family.
Proudly nursing Harrison, his daughter Kiara South’s first child, and his first grandchild, it’s easy to appreciate why Lyndon and the other 22 farming families who make up the Beaumont Community Association (BCA) share an affiliation with the hall.
The BCA was formed more than 30 years ago and has provided this small but active farming community with a shared voice on matters which have been important to them over the years.
However, what underpins the longevity of the BCA is perhaps something far greater. Friendship, good humour, respect and support – all of which you can expect to find at the Beaumont Community Hall, some 120 kilometres east of Esperance, Western Australia.
