 Agenda Item #5 Matters of Public Interest

 With a very heavy heart I wish to express my sincere condolences to the Boughen family with the recent passing of Elizabeth Boughen, two days prior to her 23rd birthday.  John and I had the pleasure of judging the Rural Ambassador – West Moreton and Brisbane Valley Sub Chamber on 25th September 2021, and we were delighted to award Elizabeth with this title.  Lizzie has been a familiar face in the cattle sections where she has been involved in shows across Southern Queensland as a steward since she was nine.  In more recent years Lizzie became a judge at several shows.  Lizzie showed a great sense and understanding of rural life and she was extremely proud of her Droughtmasters, and associated breeding responsibilities.   For Lizzie, many lessons in life could be learnt in the paddock including the fact that in life where there is a will, there is a way.  Rest In Peace Elizabeth Boughen.

 On a brighter note, I would like to encourage everyone’s attendance at the Kilcoy Race Club – Australia Day Races on Thursday 26 January.  This year will offer a fantastic new Kilcoy Gift professional sprint race for female sprinters, along with the men’s Kilcoy Gift. The Kilcoy Race Club has advised that the sprint will be a first for Kilcoy and maybe Queensland.  So please come along to watch the young competitors and make the Kilcoy Gift the  “Stawell Gift of Queensland”, in addition to the normal program of five gallops, three mini trots and fashions of the field.
