Monto community thanks

Central and North Burnett Times - - OPINION -

AS THIS will bemy last ar­ti­cle to you as Monto’s community de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer, Iwould like to thank you all for your sup­port over the past few years.

I have en­joyed sup­port­ing and as­sist­ing in the de­vel­op­ing of our community and our re­gion, but mostly I have en­joyed work­ing with (and for) the peo­ple that live in our community and re- gion.

It has been a huge hon­our. Kevin Fox will be re­plac­ing me as Monto community de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer. Kevin will be com­menc­ing in mid-Novem­ber, so please in­tro­duce your­selves to him and his fam­ily.

I will leave you with a quote from Lao-Tzu Toa Te Ching, which I firmly be­lieve is the key to community de­vel­op­ment: “Learn from the peo­ple, plan with the peo­ple, be­gin with­what they have, build on what they know. When the task is ac­com­plished, the peo­ple all re­mark, ‘we have done it our­selves’.”

Melinda Jones, Monto Community De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil
