Paver the way for the Lodge

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

WOULD you like to pro­vide a per­ma­nent recog­ni­tion of a loved one?

Res­i­dents can by sup­port­ing the Bund­aberg Health Ser­vices Foun­da­tion’s lat­est fundrais­ing cam­paign to raise money for the mod­i­fi­ca­tions re­quired for the new Ro­tary Lodge, which is mov­ing on­site to Bund­aberg Hospi­tal.

Foun­da­tion man­ager Maria Bur­net said while Ro­tary Clubs were once again lend­ing their sup­port to en­sure the work is car­ried out, it also needs com­mu­nity sup­port from the North Bur­nett and Bund­aberg com­mu­ni­ties.

“The gar­dens need a makeover and a paved path would be in­cor­po­rated into the new de­sign.

“These pavers will not only form part of the gar­den in mem­ory of Coal­stoun Lakes man Mor­ri­son Mar­shall, whose fam­ily and friends have do­nated a size­able amount of money to as­sist in these ren­o­va­tions, but the fundraiser will raise the ex­tra funds needed to see this project com­pleted in a timely man­ner,” she said.

His widow, Denise, said the pro­posed project was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for any fam­ily to recog­nise a loved one.

Ms Bur­net said in­di­vid­u­als could buy a paver for the cost of $40 with their name per­ma­nently en­graved while larger pavers cost $200 for those groups or businesses that want to be in­volved.

“We are hop­ing that guests who have stayed with us will also sup­port this cam­paign as we have had some won­der­ful tes­ti­mo­ni­als from guests who have greatly ap­pre­ci­ated hav­ing some­where close to stay dur­ing a trau­matic med­i­cal time,” she said.
