Fu­ture com­mu­nity lead­ers

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

THE Booyal Me­mo­rial Hall Com­mit­tee is about to trial a ju­nior sub-com­mit­tee to as­sist with fu­ture events and fundrais­ing.

This is a great op­por­tu­nity for ju­nior mem­bers of the lo­cal com­mu­nity to learn and ap­ply new life skills un­der the su­per­vi­sion of the elected com­mit­tee.

Peter Peter­son, of Bund­aberg Busi­ness En­ter­prises, trav­elled to Booyal on Mon­day to present an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion to ed­u­cate the pas­sion­ate stu­dents about the du­ties of a com­mit­tee.

Mr Peter­son spoke of the roles and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of the pres­i­dent, sec­re­tary and trea­surer.

“It’s great to see the youth of Booyal pas­sion­ate about their com­mu­nity and want­ing to get in­volved,” he said.

“The ju­nior mem­bers of the com­mu­nity are the na­tion’s fu­ture and I en­cour­age oth­ers to be more in­volved.”

Mr Peter­son urged the stu­dents to play an ac­tive role in the com­mu­nity and dur­ing the evening the stu­dents nom­i­nated them­selves for ex­ec­u­tive roles and voted to elect their lead­ers.

Vic­tor Vella was voted in as chair, Jess Paten as vice-chair, Kir­rili Schimpf as sec­re­tary and Ash­leigh Ben­dell as trea­surer.

The Booyal Me­mo­rial is an as­set to the com­mu­nity and it is up to the com­mu­nity to main­tain its run­ning and up­keep.

The stu­dents have the imag­i­na­tion, drive and passion to make fu­ture events suc­cess­ful, and they have been en­cour­aged by the com­mit­tee to or­gan­ise events for the Fam­ily Fun Day in Septem­ber.

Com­mit­tee sec­re­tary Heather McMa­hon said the ju­nior com­mit­tee would do their best for Booyal.

“They all should be very proud and they are set­ting a great ex­am­ple to the en­tire com­mu­nity and hope­fully en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers,” she said.
