Somerset Skate Series
The first of five events of the series were held at Kilcoy on a warm afternoon. The event was well organised, with a free barbecue and music.

Roy Emerson Unveiling of Statue
The committee of the Roy Emerson Museum – Blackbutt Tourism & Heritage Qld organised a touching, memorable and jovial event with highly distinguished guests in attendance. There were lots of stories and chuckles from memories that were shared on the day with this tennis legend, lovingly known as “MO”. Cr Hall & I, represent Somerset Regional Council on the Brisbane Valley Heritage Trails Committee, whereby members of the Blackbutt & District Tourist & Heritage Assn. are also members. Due to this close working relationship, I would like to move that a letter of congratulations be forwarded to the voluntary association, recognising the effort and funding achieved to bring their vision to fruition. If you wish to view this historic event, there is a wonderful you tube video.
