Bank­ing

AN on­go­ing huge is­sue for Theodore, the ANZ ATM again at its best, break­ing down and only is­su­ing $50 notes did not help lo­cals at all. Lo­cal in­quiries as to get­ting another bank into Theodore have not been very suc­cess­ful with no tak­ers so far.

River Fes­ti­val

THEODORE River Fes­ti­val is a multi-func­tion event, held over four days, to cel­e­brate the Daw­son River in Theodore. A fun filled fam­ily week­end with lots for kids and adults alike. One of the high­lights to the event is the art show on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 28. Called “un­corked”, the wine and cheese night will have on show lo­cal art and sculp­ture. Lo­cals are be­ing in­vited to submit their junk sculp­ture. The river fes­ti­val will en­com­pass a multi-cul­tural food fes­ti­val or­gan­ised by Theodore Com­mu­nity Link. River cruises will be on of­fer at $10 per head leav­ing ev­ery hour from the boat ramp.

Gun Amnesty

LO­CALS have been tak­ing ad­van­tage with the cur­rent gun amnesty. So far the gun shop has taken hun­dreds of in­quiries from all around Cen­tral Queens­land. Odd and un­usual fires have in­cluded a Lith­gow-made SLR used by Aus­tralian forces in Korea and Viet­nam, an old colt and sev­eral 303s.

RUOKDay

THURS­DAY, October 12, is R U Ok Day. From 9am there will be cof­fee drops to lo­cal busi­nesses with cof­fee sup­plied by Xtreme 1 Servo, Wil­lows, Theodore Home and Gar­den and Theodore News.

Rid­ers Down Un­der

ON Tues­day, Septem­ber 5, Grant and Dave will be vis­it­ing Theodore on their Be­yond Blue char­ity ad­ven­ture ride pro­mot­ing de­pres­sion aware­ness and sui­cide re­duc­tion. They are trav­el­ling around Aus­tralia through re­gional towns just like ours where men’s men­tal health is of­ten over­looked, while sadly hav­ing higher than av­er­age rates of de­pres­sion and sui­cide. To sup­port their ef­forts Theodore Home & Gar­den Café do­nated $1 from ev­ery cof­fee sold that day to Be­yond Blue. Grant and Dave vis­ited our café from about 11am un­til early af­ter­noon and were keen to meet as many lo­cals as pos­si­ble and share their story. They stayed on in town overnight and are sup­port­ing our com­mu­nity with their mar­ket­ing and so­cial me­dia pro­file of our lo­cal peo­ple and Theodore’s unique features. Let’s get be­hind this ini­tia­tive and cap­i­talise on the pro­file for our com­mu­nity and the sup­port we can give to Be­yond Blue to help our men’s sound men­tal health.
