New Year, new town spirit

Chinchilla News - - NEWS OPINION - Kate McCormack [email protected]­chillanews.com.au

IF YOU, like me, are not a new year’s res­o­lu­tion type, then per­haps I can in­ter­est you in a dif­fer­ent type of prom­ise for 2019.

In­stead of pledg­ing to in­dulge less or work out more, why not pledge your­self to a wor­thy lo­cal cause?

Chin­chilla and sur­round­ing town­ships are burst­ing with great com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and clubs who are al­ways look­ing for an ex­tra set of hands.

The Chin­chilla Scouts, Drought An­gels and the Mo­tocross Club are all keen for some new, friendly faces to join them this year and if none of th­ese sound up your al­ley, why not cre­ate your own com­mu­nity ori­en­tated club?

And you don’t have to join a group to show your sup­port. At­tend­ing any events that are of in­ter­est to you or your fam­ily is just as im­por­tant.

Mon­day night’s New Year’s fes­tiv­i­ties proved there is a huge de­mand for lo­cal events and when lo­cals show their sup­port it in­spires oth­ers to cre­ate more fun-filled events.

With Melon Fes­ti­val just around the cor­ner there’s no bet­ter time to get be­hind your lo­cal groups and sup­port this great lit­tle town in 2019.

I urge every­one to try and at­tend at least one or two events in the re­gion this year, with so much on of­fer you sim­ply can’t go wrong.

The Chin­chilla Mo­tocross Club is look­ing for a new club pres­i­dent and vice-pres­i­dent as well as a num­ber of un­of­fi­cial po­si­tions.

The club will hold its AGM on Satur­day, Jan­uary 12 at 6pm at the Chin­chilla RSL. Every­one is wel­come.
