Childers’ week of sad­ness

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Jodie Dixon Reporter jodie.dixon@isistc­

WHAT a sad week for Childers with the pass­ing of a much-loved friend to all, Doug Schofield.

I want to pass on my con­do­lences to the Schofield fam­ily for your loss. May he rest in peace.

This week we have seen two house fires in Childers.

It should be a re­minder for all to have a work­ing smoke alarm and a plan if things go wrong.

My thoughts are with the Mam­mino fam­ily.

I am do­ing a shout out to all the ladies and gents with long hair to join me in Shave for a Cure. Yes, I am go­ing to do it.

I am brave and my hair will grow back, I hope.

Jill Owen has talked me around and I will do it, un­less I chicken out at the last mo­ment.

I am look­ing for do­na­tions and oth­ers to join me.

I will be able to see for the first time how grey my hair re­ally is. I haven’t seen my nat­u­ral colour for 30 years.

The Isis RSL will host the Shave for a Cure and they need your sup­port.

On a spooky note, Childers pre­pare your­self as the spirit team has set a date to come back – March 12.

I am again look­ing for ac­com­mo­da­tion for the team. I am re­quest­ing one free room and pos­si­bly two oth­ers on the cheap.

The team will make the jour­ney from Bris­bane and it would be nice to show some coun­try hos­pi­tal­ity.

Fi­nally, af­ter such a long wait, Chris Cook and her team of ded­i­cated vol­un­teers will be stir­ring up old spir­its when the ATC Hall hosts its first dance of the year.

If you have some­thing com­ing up, let us know at Town and Coun­try and get your mes­sage out. Have a great week Childers.

I will be able to see for the first time how grey my hair re­ally is ...
