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.
