What a year it has been

Dalby Herald - - NEWS - — Peter Ire­land Pres­i­dent, Jandowae and District Progress and Her­itage As­so­ci­a­tion

I WOULD like to wel­come Cr Donna Ashurst to Athlone, and thank her for agree­ing to chair our an­nual meet­ing.

Af­ter the hec­tic two years of restor­ing the old school, the com­mit­tee has en­joyed a much more re­laxed 12 months.

Even so I feel we have achieved a lot this year.

Len Veivers com­pleted the ramp for the dis­abled and this com­pleted all as­so­ci­ated work on the school.

Ron Woods erected the gar­den shed with the help of com­mit­tee mem­bers.

This shed was clad with sec­ond-hand iron do­nated by the Gall fam­ily.

The iron en­sured the shed fit­ted in with the sur­round­ing build­ings.

The com­mit­tee is aware that main­te­nance is a top pri­or­ity for our build­ings.

We thank Ron Woods for the do­na­tion of his time when he did re­pairs to Athlone cot­tage and the shear­ers quar­ters.

We have a quote to paint Athlone and are wait­ing for a grant to pro­ceed with this work.

The com­mit­tee is in the early stages of two new projects for our precinct.

Firstly we are plan­ning to move the Ger­man Wagon, now sit­u­ated in Apex Park, to our site.

Our sec­ond project is the up­date of the pam­phlet de­scrib­ing the build­ings and dis­plays on show at Athlone precinct.

Thank you to all our com­mit­tee and friends of Athlone who are al­ways on hand when we need help at func­tions.
