Vol­un­teers thanked for tire­less work

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

AS WE en­ter our sec­ond round of Shar­ing In­for­ma­tion with the Monto com­mu­nity, we are able to speak of achieve­ments and com­mit­ments.

I thank the staff at the Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre for their co-op­er­a­tion.

Our vol­un­teer day lun­cheon was a huge suc­cess. Thanks to all in­volved, es­pe­cially the ladies at the Monto Bowls club, the Monto High School Band, the CDO and of course, the vol­un­teers who ac­tu­ally made the rea­son for the day pos­si­ble.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to June Loader who re­ceived the North Bur­nett Vol­un­teer of the Year award.

Thanks to Mayor DonWaugh who trav­elled to Monto the fol­low­ing week to con­grat­u­late June on be­half of the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil.

Monto has set the stan­dard, who will be the re­cip­i­ent next year?

The CDO has also been busy with the Smart Pro­gram.

This is about pro­vid­ing trans­port for peo­ple from our com­mu­nity to at­tend med­i­cal ap­point­ments in larger cen­tres.

The forms for this ser­vice are avail­able at the Monto Fam­ily Med­i­cal Cen­tre.

We have two vis­it­ing ser­vices work­ing from the NHC at present.

We are en­gaged in talks with an­other five ser­vices that have in­di­cated an in­ter­est in work­ing out of an of­fice in Monto to bet­ter ser­vice their clien­tele in this area.
