What a year it has been
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.
