IT IS very re­fresh­ing to see the sup­port given by lo­cal peo­ple to ac­tiv­i­ties and projects across the re­gion.

From the dis­play of class­rooms and ac­tiv­i­ties by the students at Biggen­den – where the school cap­tains, in coat and tie, wel­comed guests – to the choir and the bar­be­cue.

It was an ex­cel­lent evening. Ten out of ten to the prin­ci­pal, staff and students.

The drive and en­thu­si­asm shown by the peo­ple of Eidsvold for the sun­room and lounge built at the hospi­tal for the res­i­dents was won­der­ful.

Full marks to the Freema­sons for fund­ing the project. The fact about 40 peo­ple at­tended the of­fi­cial open­ing and lunch is in­dica­tive of the lo­cal feel­ing.

It is nec­es­sary to sup­port in­fra­struc­tures such as this, to show just how much they are needed in the community.

Sim­i­larly in Monto, a golf af­ter­noon was held to raise funds to­wards a sundeck at the hospi­tal, for use by the res­i­dents.

Much ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the many peo­ple, who joined in the com­pe­ti­tion and to the sup­port given by the golf club, to in­crease the amount raised.

With this strength of community in­volve­ment across the re­gion, the North Bur­nett will pros­per and keep alive the pi­o­neer­ing spirit that opened up the coun­try in the first place.
