Cadets group back in action
THERE was a positive response to the Emergency Service Cadets Program sign-on at Biggenden on Tuesday night.
When the cadets program was axed last year, the students were devastated.
Earlier in the year the State Government announced funding through the PCYC and a revitalised program.
On Tuesday night, 19 cadets signed up, ofwhich eightwere new recruits.
Another increase was that there were 18 adult leaders wanting to become involved with their children, whichwas 10 more than last time.
In attendance was Emergency Service Cadets program manager Jenny Schoof, who had travelled up from Brisbane to outline the program.
Former cadets co-ordinator Moira Thompson said Gayndah was keen to become involved and they had a presence at the sign-up on Tuesday night.
