I recently had the pleasure of talking to a fantastic group of people at the Glass House Mountains RSL on my recent trip to Kokoda. I was really surprised at the number of people that attended and would like to thank the RSL for hosting me. My trip to Kokoda has had a life changing effect on me and it was great to be able to share my stories and experiences with such a captivated audience.
I have also been to quite a few AGM’s around the electorate lately and must say I never get tired of catching up with the local volunteers who make our community tick! It is so inspiring to see that no matter how old or young you are, you can really make a difference in the lives of so many people. The good folks at Maleny Meals on Wheels are testimony to this. They really are a fantastic bunch of people and under the guidance of their President Jack Wilcox, they are truly worthy of our upmost respect and admiration. In celebration of National Meals on Wheels day, following the meeting Jack and I delivered a hot meal to one of the Meals on Wheels clients, Mrs Beryl Newton. The service this community organisation provide is really second to none, and I can honestly say my own mouth was watering when I saw what Mrs Newton had for lunch!
While out and about I also attended the Maleny Senior Citizens AGM recently and the Green Hills AGM this past Saturday. Congratulations to Mr Steven Lang for taking on the Presidency of the organisation for the coming year.
The good people at Wamuran Neighbourhood Watch also held their AGM and 20 year celebrations recently and it was a real privilege to attend. This is certainly one community group that are worth their weight in gold and the effort they put into ensuring our streets are much safer is something we can all admire.
