Year 6 students drop in for a bit of a chat
I am writing to congratulate Julia Leu for being voted in as Mayor of the Douglas Shire in last Saturday’s local election.
I have already contacted her personally to congratulate her and to assure her that if there is anything I can do to help over the next four years she knows she only has to ask. After all it’s the Shire that matters.
And finally I would like to say a huge thank you to all the people helped during my campaign and to all the residents who voted for me.
We now have to join forces with the new council to help ensure the Shire is the winner. On behalf of the Year 6 students at Port Douglas State School that visited your office on Thursday, March 10, thank you Shane Nichols for telling us all about the Gazette and how you compile the articles and paper for production each week.
Thank you also to Annette from the Douglas Shire Historical Society at the Old Courthouse Museum for informing us about Ellen Thomson, the first and only women to be hanged in Queensland. Annette also told us about the bulb and mirrors in the . historic lighthouse that were once on Low Isles. It was a great day. We had a fantastic time and you both really impressed us all.
