Chinese New Year enjoyed by most
ON CHINESE New Year in Childers, we went along to the dinner at the Childers Bowls Club. There we met two young men from Taiwan, and we had an entertaining conversation. It was not difficult, they had the new note pads that translated English back, but they wanted to speak English as much as they could. They even had pictures of eggs and other edible items to help them in their photo libraries. So last Saturday, we attended the function in Bundaberg and we know a number of people from the Childers district were there. The entertainment by the performers was very good and most enjoyable. The Parade of lights was colourful. I did notice though that a number of councillors were not there. Perhaps they were afraid of the fireworks to ward off the demons. Hopefully, this Chinese New Year also heralds the success of a number of new aspiring councillors. Bundaberg Region needs totally new and refreshed people with positive ideas as we do not need another round of master problems.
