Fan­tas­tic fun for all at the In­ter­act Colour Run

Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

HELLO and wel­come back to our col­umn. We hope your week was fan­tas­tic.

At our meet­ing last week, we en­joyed an ad­dress by Susie Wood from Busi­ness Nav­i­ga­tor.

Susie has been in the area for about 13 years and loves the dis­trict.

She has had a var­ied ca­reer, both in Aus­tralia and over­seas, and is now work­ing for Busi­ness Nav­i­ga­tor which is man­aged by TSBE and funded by QGC.

Susie also men­tioned that the fi­nals of the “Pitch Chal­lenge” will be com­ing up shortly and that we should be very in­ter­ested in some of the great ideas which have come out of this com­pe­ti­tion.

I be­lieve the fi­nal will be held in De­cem­ber.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Chin­chilla State High School In­ter­act Club and their sup­port teach­ers.

The “Colour Run” event was held last Satur­day and was a great suc­cess with about 199 par­tic­i­pants tak­ing part.

It was a very well or­gan­ised event and it was great to see ev­ery­one en­joy­ing them­selves de­spite the hot weather.

The funds raised are to be shared between the Drought An­gels and the Dis­trict Drought Re­lief Fund which our club is par­tic­i­pat­ing in.

Of course, we still have lots planned be­fore the year ends and we hope that you keep read­ing the col­umn for more in­for­ma­tion.

I be­lieve that our last of­fi­cial event for the year will be the CCCI Christ­mas Street Party on De­cem­ber 13, where we will be sup­ply­ing our great burg­ers to the pub­lic.

Have you pur­chased your Mel­bourne Cup Sweep tick­ets yet?

Ro­tar­i­ans will be sell­ing more tick­ets this Thurs­day and Fri­day in Heeney Street and the big draw will be held at the RSL Memo­rial Club on Mon­day, Novem­ber 5.

The Memo­rial Club is sup­ply­ing nib­bles for those in at­ten­dance and we hope to have some fun be­fore and dur­ing the draw.

There will be a mock horse race, rum toss and I guess you will have to come along to see all the fun!

It should get un­der way around 7pm to 7.30pm and will be held in the pub­lic bar.

I think that it is time for me to say farewell for this week but please re­mem­ber that our club truly ap­pre­ci­ates your sup­port of ev­ery­thing we do and as we al­ways say “Thank you for al­low­ing us to as­sist our com­mu­nity”.

Bye for now and take care.
