I must sincerely thank the band of busy Mums who form the Kilcoy Christmas Carnival committee. I would like to once again thank our Mayor for performing the official opening of the carnival. The attendance of the event this year was enormous and I believe the biggest carnival yet. I am filled with a profound sense of awe and gratitude being part of our multi-cultural community. The Fijian men sang their beautiful song unaccompanied. John and I along with some dear friends rode our motorbikes and trikes escorting Santa who was positioned in a well decorated RAM. By the reaction of the children, they were totally gob smacked by Santa’s elaborate entry. Finally, thank you so much to the hard working husbands and partners of the Kilcoy Christmas Carnival committee, and to the many heroic sponsors.

It was my pleasure to introduce Ms Tolcher to Cr Latter (MBCC) as a very knowledgeable and experienced equine representative. The conversation was relative to future rail trails in the area.

Congratulations to all school children who participated in their special awards ceremonies. It is always gratifying to witness their hard work and the forthcoming rewards. Of course, none of this would be possible without the strong support of their teaching staff, and Mum, Dads and Carers.

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.
