Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Council Meeting 12 April 2023 

Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

I encourage our residents to ensure that they are receiving a copy of  Council’s Welcome to SomArtset quarterly e-newsletter which promotes, encourages, and supports an artistic and vibrant Somerset Region.  The publication will tell you about what’s happening in arts and culture locally and further afield, profile community groups, and let you know about exciting arts and cultural opportunities on offer.

Congratulations to woodchopping Mother and Daughter team, Renee and Millee Retschlag competing in the same championship chop (275mm ladies’ underhand championship) and further congratulations to Renee Retschlag and partner coming third in the Jill and Jill double handed 375mm cross cut championship at the Sydney Royal Easter Show 2023.

Somerset Dam General Store held a very successful Easter Twilight Markets, so congratulations go to the new owners of this idyllic location.  I am sure this will be the first of many future community events.

Kilcoy Chamber of Commerce held a collaboration – working together discussion at its Business at Dusk event held at the Exchange Hotel.  The workshop was well supported and the event provided an opportunity for businesses to network and to learn more about each other.  Businesses were eager to learn if it would ever be possible for Kilcoy to be on the rail trail path either from the Brisbane Valley Rail Trial or the Wamuran/Woodford Rail

I believe in open communication, active listening and a common sense approach, always.
After 39 years in Local Government, I have enjoyed my journey and understand the importance of Local Government as the grass root level of government.

Welcome to our little town❣️As everyone knows, each Saturday morning Yowie Park is a hive of activity with people participating in the Yowie Park Run. Well last Saturday 13 April the gallery was visited by some British International park runners who apparently flew in Friday to run the Yowie park run on the international circuit! They then visited the gallery and bought one of Noela Lowien's artworks from her Artist of the Month wall! Aptly, it just happened to be her painting of a yowie! Great souvenir to take back to the UK of their visit to Kilcoy, don't you think? ... See MoreSee Less
