PAINT THE TOWN YELLOW: It's Daffodil Day.Bev Lacey

CENTRAL Highlands residents are being encouraged to wear a yellow daffodil today in recognition of Cancer Council Queensland's iconic annual Daffodil Day.
Local volunteer Kerri Deakin said this week she wanted to help turn the town yellow in a display of support for people affected by cancer, to show that people cared and also to provide fundraising for cancer research.
Ms Deakin, who has been volunteering for Cancer Council Queensland's Emerald branch for 13 years, has helped coordinate sites throughout the region to facilitate this year's campaign.
