Organisers have busy time ahead with show season
WITH the show season beginning, it will be a very busy time for exhibitors and especially for those involved with the organisation and operation of the events.
Gayndah was first cab off the rank and had a great response and excellent crowd.
Mt Perry always has a great atmosphere and this year doubled the number of stalls wishing to display their goods.
One thing that stood out was the report from the Floral Arts judges, who noted the special emphasis of exhibitors on the Anzac theme.
I think this is very fitting and congratulate the stewards and committee on this direction.
On the same day was the anniversary of 100 years since the St Joseph’s Church was built in Gayndah.
The Catholic Archbishop, Mark Coleridge, officiated and was assisted by a number of the priests who held tenure here over the years.
Congratulations to Father Jason Middleton, who organised such an historic occasion.
The contribution made by this church to the community is also evidenced by the excellent results of those attending St Joseph’s School.
The council has held a number of morning sessions for community members and business people to explain much of our operation and to give a lead-in to our new procurement policy.
Acting CEO DavidWiskar has given an excellent information session and the response has been satisfactory.
We will hold the next meetings in the evening, in Eidsvold on May 5 and Mt Perry on May 6.
Anybody who missed earlier sessions are welcome to register for either of these.
Council CEO Mark Pitt has received medical clearance to return to work on May 4.
It is a pleasure to welcome Mark back and so good to see how well he has recovered.
At the same time, I will pay full credit to the way DavidWiskar has filled in while Mark was injured.
