Or­gan­is­ers have busy time ahead with show sea­son

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT - – MAYOR DON WAUGH

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.
