Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 11 May 2022

Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest
The Hayes and Co 2022 Kilcoy Beef Event was a very well organised event with a great number of entries. A heartfelt reflection of the young Kilcoy identity was given with regard to The Coen Fry Memorial Trophy, which was proudly awarded to Jack Williamson of Linville. The Junior Judges were extremely well represented, so sincere congratulations must be offered to everyone.

Simon Cleary has commenced his track along the Brisbane River, he commenced with inclement weather but this has not dampened his enthusiasm. “Where the river leads, we shall go. When will we arrive? Does even it know?” Off on a little walk along the Brisbane River/Maiwar with some special companions, the river being one of them. Back in a month”. I look forward to obtaining a copy of Simon’s book about his experiences when written.

Congratulations to Council’s Tourism Staff who have successfully nominated Linville, and which has now become a finalist as part of the Queensland Tourism Industry Council – Favourite Top Tiny Tourism Town. There are nine other finalists – good luck Linville, let’s hope there are lots of votes received from our communities.

I now understand the work and stress experienced by many involved with the associated planning of the Esk IGA at its official opening held on 27th April. Well done to everyone concerned, you must be very proud of the eventual opening. We look forward to each milestone with the forthcoming changes to the existing building and the presentation of the final project.

I must acknowledge the professionalism and dedication of the Toogoolawah High School students who were part of the musical “The Little Mermaid”. The acting and singing were absolutely wonderful, with the students performing all roles and songs with complete confidence and passion. This production has been held up by COVID, but given the time lapse, it was well worth the effort and working through all the associated challenges.

The Kilcoy Hospital Auxiliary is finalizing its planning for the Kilcoy Hospital Fete to be held on Saturday 28th May.

I must acknowledge the resilience of our local community groups. The Kilcoy Rodeo committee has made a loss with the need to postpone the March Rodeo due to the February floods, however the committee is ignoring this fact and working on providing a fantastic event on Saturday 6th August.
