With the start of the school holidays last week I took the opportunity to head down to the Granite Belt for a couple of days with the family. Lots of geocaching and family fun.
On Wednesday I was privileged to represent Tim Nicholls at an Investiture Ceremony at Government House before heading to the ‘Welcome to Maleny’ dinner hosted by the Maleny Blackall Range Lions Club that evening.
On Friday I met with Kel McNamara from Glasshouse, who has agreed to be the principal petitioner in requesting safety improvements at the intersection of Kilcoy-Beerwah Road and Old Gympie Road. Kel’s business sees him use the intersection frequently and he shared his concerns and ideas on how we could make it safer. I’m keen to take them further.
The Lions Clubs of Caboolture and Woodford were on a recruitment drive at the Wamuran Country Markets on Saturday and it was great to catch up with them there. If you’re interested in joining the Lions Club and live in the Wamuran and Wararba Creek area let me know and I’ll put you in touch with Mike Christie.
On Saturday night I had the honour of attending the Community Grants night for the Palmwoods Branch of the Heritage Bank and presented some of the 22 recipients with their certificates. The Heritage Bank in Palmwoods have now provided more than $2 million in Community Grants and continues to support the local community through this great initiative.
