Chi­nese New Year en­joyed by most

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

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.
