Central and North Burnett Times - - OPINION -

THE new year went off with a bang with the fire­works dis­play at Par­adise Dam.

The dis­play, pre­sented by the Biggen­den Cham­ber of Com­merce, was a huge success and is set to be­come a much an­tic­i­pated an­nual event.

We would like to thank all the lo­cal busi­nesses that spon­sored the event in­clud­ing Bendigo Bank, Biggen­den Food­works, Trek 4WD Sa­faris, Grand Ho­tel, Biggen­den Butch­ery, Cr Lofty Wendt, Biggen­den Newsagency, Mingo Cross­ing Recre­ational Area, Harry’s Kayak Ad­ven­tures, Com­mu­nity So­lu­tions, Biggen­den Phar­macy and Par­adise Dam Recre­ational Area.

Coming up, we’re look­ing for­ward to the CMCA so­los vis­it­ing town soon and there will be more in­for­ma­tion in the next cham­ber meet­ing.

The event will be look­ing for peo­ple to help out with bus tours and setup of mar­quees etc.

I’d like to wish you all a safe and en­joy­able Aus­tralia Day.

I’ll be kept busy at the Mingo Cross­ing Fam­ily Fun in the Sun Day.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come and I hope to see you there!

The cham­ber had a much de­served break over the Christ­mas hol­i­days.

As the cham­ber is al­most com- pletely setup we just need ev­ery­one to at­tend the next meet­ing to fi­nalise con­sti­tu­tional mat­ters so we can make this year a great year.

The next meet­ing will be held at the Me­mo­rial Hall onWed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 13, at 5.30pm.

As al­ways, new mem­bers are more than wel­come.

Corey Goldie pres­i­dent, Biggen­den Cham­ber of Com­merce
