The Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare Group is holding its AGM on 23 October, and a huge call out to any community member who may have time available to help out. Most of the Executive positions will be declared vacant and without support, this group has a real chance of disappearing from our community. Please come along if you have a regard for this type of local voluntary group.
A huge thank you to our SES and Rural Fire Brigades for their efforts during recent fires in our region.
