Something as simple as an old piano can bring joy to many people, something the whole community of Warracknabeal can enjoy with Tuesday's presentation of a community piano.
The piano was a collaborative project between the Yarriambiack Youth Action Council and the Warracknabeal Arts Council.
The project also involved other members of the community.
Meg Streeter and her family thoughtfully donated it. The piano was passed down generations since the 1950s.
