Brisbane Valley Kilcoy Landcare Group – AGM
Unfortunately, due to the lack of a quorum, the AGM was postponed to Wednesday 6th December 2017.
Kilcoy State High School Valedictory
Sixty-Four Year 12 students graduated in front of a packed auditorium. The morning’s ceremony was a fitting way to farewell the students who will now enter the next chapter of their lives. I noticed that there were lots of mixed feelings and emotions from both parents/caregivers and students.
Kilcoy Indoor Sports Centre – Xbox Draw & Final Youth Night
Once again Council’s Yowie Park sporting precinct was abuzz with local youth enjoying the Aquatic Centre and Indoor Sports Centre activities. I grabbed a couple of yoga mats and settled down to watch the move Spiderman with our youth, parents and caregivers. The movie was viewed from a large movie screen set up in the centre’s court. Popcorn, lollies, savoury dips and drinks were served to the movie goers at interval along with the Xbox Draw. Congratulations to Kaleb Oldfield who won the Xbox. River, Jack, Uriah, Kyle and Kaleb won a free membership for good behaviour. Many thanks to the Kilcoy Lions who donated food to feed the hungry gathering. Ms McKenzie thanked the volunteers by offering a gift pack of usable items. Overall the final attendance outnumbered 800 youth, so the need for this type of activity is well noted.
Kilcoy Indoor Sports Centre Manager recognised at Queensland Community Achievement Awards
The Hon Dr Anthony Lynham MP, Minister for State Development and Minister for Natural Resources and Mines presented Jayne McKenzie with the semi-finalist Customer Service Award and Community Group Award at the Gala Dinner held in Brisbane on Saturday evening, 18th November, 2017. The Minister said “it is a pleasure and so inspiring just how many fantastic high achievers and community contributors there are throughout Queensland”. Ms McKenzie can take pride in the knowledge that over 800 community groups were nominated state wide, and her nomination was the only one that was included in two separate award categories.
Saturday 18th November 2017 Events
The rain was very welcome, but caused some interruption to some of the events held over the region. A robust discussion took place at Cormorant Bay to identify the possibility of setting up Park Fun Runs in the area. The Glen Rock Stitchers were experiencing great sale numbers at their annual Christmas Craft and Gift fair. The Esk Markets were feeling the effects of the damp weather, with a small number of stalls set up in Pipeliner Park. The Kilcoy Pony Club received just under 100 nominations for their campdraft. The club was appreciative of the light showers Saturday morning which settled the dust, but were hoping that further rain was not experienced. Unfortunately, Sunday events were cancelled due to the increase in showers. Asphalts Demons were coping with the damp conditions, however stated that due to the weather, the airplanes could no fly and provide their guests with any aerobatic displays this year.
