A chance to learn from those who know best

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

IT IS al­ways a plea­sure to greet vis­i­tors to the re­gion and es­pe­cially so with peo­ple who have con­trib­uted to pro­grams that have been of ma­jor ben­e­fit to the coun­try and even world­wide.

Such is the case with the Aus­tralia Day Am­bas­sador, As­so­ciate Pro­fes­sor Dim­ity Dor­nan, and her hus­band Peter, who vis­ited Mt Perry on that spe­cial day.

They stayed with Clive and Deb Din­gle at the Mar­chioness farm stay, and what a build­ing that is! De­signed and built by Clive, it is a credit to his imag­i­na­tion and skill. Clive and Deb, I wish you well in the fu­ture.

To have such highly-pro­filed peo­ple as As­so­ciate Pro­fes­sor Dor­nan be pre­pared to ac­cept th­ese Am­bas­sado­rial roles and visit coun­try ar­eas on th­ese oc­ca­sions is a great op­por­tu­nity for us to learn of the ad­vances in so many ar­eas of med­i­cal sci­ence.

It seems that bionic parts are now no longer a dream but a re­al­ity.

As­so­ciate Pro­fes­sor Dor­nan and her hus­band Peter are great pro­mot­ers of their sci­ence and it was a plea­sure to host them in our re­gion.

I hope every­body had an en­joy­able Aus­tralia Day and I con­grat­u­late those who were pre­sented with awards and also those who were nom­i­nated.

I be­lieve it is im­por­tant to iden­tify peo­ple in our com­mu­ni­ties who have achieved and those who work as vol­un­teers for our com­mu­ni­ties.

To be recog­nised, they have to be iden­ti­fied and need your nom­i­na­tion.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the new cit­i­zens who were wel­comed at the Mt Perry cer­e­mony on Aus­tralia Day.
