Congratulations to the Lowood High School students who took part in the 2022 Kokoda Challenge. I applaud each and every student for their courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice required to achieve this rewarding personal challenge.
A membership call out made by the Esk Hospital Auxiliary was rewarded with a dozen people attending the monthly
August meeting. The Auxiliary will hold its AGM on Thursday 8th September at the Somerset Civic Centre commencing at 2:00pm. Your attendance is encouraged.
I was delighted to be asked to chair the election of new office bearers of the Somerset Art Society Inc. AGM. The Society has achieved many great goals during the last twelve months and is looking forward to the next twelve months and further achievements. All positions were quickly filled, however the Society is seeking the services of a President for 2022/23 financial year.
