❝New residences require access to services and those services have been severely stretched.
— Margaret Shaw
Pararic Butler from the council who spent hours trying to figure out a way to get us water, and Kendal Nash from KnP Plumbing who was up here so often to give it another go that he might as well have moved in.
I’m pleased to say water returned (in due course) but we may have a lesson to learn.
New residences require access to services and those services have been severely stretched. As the area grows, then infrastructure must grow with it.
Tribute to Pam
PAM Graham was an inspirational, respected, compassionate principal of Cannonvale State School for many years and a dear, fun, greatly missed mentor and friend.
Pam fought a valiant fight for her health for many years with courage, dignity and, most of all, a positive attitude. She would always say “there are others worse off”, no matter how great her pain or how difficult her circumstances.
From our perspective, Pam was taken into eternal life too soon. We needed more Monday morning coffees at the Fat Frog, more weekend dinners, more shopping lists and meals delivered, more computer problems for Bruce to fix, more paperwork headaches for Mary to solve, more spiders for Blue to wrangle, more in-depth conversations with Sharon, more Get-Up and Go classes, more Zonta meetings and functions and many, many more stories shared and laughs.
Pamela Stacia Graham was a gift to those who had the good fortune to know her.
Pam will always be remembered and deeply missed by her family, her many friends and the Whitsunday community in which she chose to live.
