Toogoolawah was buzzing on Friday afternoon (28 June) with the opening of two unique businesses.   Complementing each other, the shops are located side by side with lots of interesting and charming items for sale.  Take a serious look inside this quaint building, and I bet you will not leave without buying a lovely gift or even something for yourself.

Busy weekend of Lion Changeover ceremonies, with Lowood and Fernvale formally appointing their change in Board members.  Both clubs provided tasty and enjoyable meals, Fernvale organised a twist with a champagne breakfast.  There were interesting speakers and the formalities were well organised, congratulations to both clubs.  I am proud to support Fernvale Lions Club with the organization of Relay for Life, to be held on 28 September at Fernvale Sports Park.  I hope to see you and your group represented at this important event in order to raise funds to assist the Cancer Council Qld.  Remember every cent helps in the race to find a cure for cancer.

At the Somerset Dam & District Progress Assn monthly meeting, we discussed the legacy project that will be provided by SEQWater as a direct outcome of the Somerset Dam upgrade.  The group are busy with raising funds through provision of sausage sizzles, and catering for the caravan and camping grounds located in the village.  Council’s Director Corporate and Community Services attended the meeting to answer questions and offer advice with administration of the village’s tennis court.  Thank you, Matthew McGoldrick for your attendance and advice.

Cr Whalley, Director Corporate and Community Services Director Matthew and I met with West Moreton Landcare Group to discuss the group’s goals around the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and Peter Bevan’s plantings.  It was an interesting on-site meeting which resulted in real possibilities and future planning of an identified area.

I was pleased to call in to our two Men’s Sheds.  Here I was reminded of the important services that these sheds offer our communities.  It was also a good time to discuss future needs of both facilities.
