Mayor’s Christ­mas Mes­sage to the re­gion

Tablelands Advertiser - - LIFESTYLE -

Ma­reeba Shire Coun­cil mayor Tom Gil­more AS we pre­pare to cel­e­brate Christ­mas with our fam­i­lies and friends, it is so very im­por­tant to take the time to re­flect on the past year - our achieve­ments and of course the chal­lenges we have over­come.

Also to think about the hopes and goals we hold for the New Year ahead.

The essence of Christ­mas is of course, a time of char­ity and good­will to the whole of mankind, ir­re­spec­tive of race, colour or creed.

It is a time to re­mem­ber those within our com­mu­nity who are less for­tu­nate than our­selves and to as­sist in mak­ing Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions mem­o­rable and a time of joy, es­pe­cially for the chil­dren, as Christ­mas is tra­di­tion­ally a mag­i­cal time for them.

I sin­cerely thank all those who have given so gen­er­ously to sup­port the Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal to as­sist our lo­cal fam­i­lies in need.

On be­half of coun­cil­lors and staff of the Ma­reeba Shire Coun­cil, I wish ev­ery­one a very won­der­ful Christ­mas and a re­ward­ing New Year. To find out more about the 2017 Ma­reeba Shire Coun­cil's Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal visit coun­cil’s web­site at may­ors-christ­mas-ap­peal/
