 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 11 August 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 Australia’s Tokyo tally of 17 gold medals matches the previous high mark achieved in Athens 2004.  Congratulations to all Aussies who competed at the Olympic Games Tokyo, and well done to the athletes who contributed to Australia achieving sixth in the countries medal count.  We honour everyone’s efforts, regardless of a medal outcome.

As the RADF Chair, I am pleased with the State Government’s announcement that Somerset Regional Council has been successful in its bid for a total amount of $26,000.  Although our bid was for a little more, the funds will accomplish a great deal in the region’s arts and creative industries.

Our two local race clubs, will hopefully benefit from the State Government’s Racing Queensland’s Investment Growth Plan which outlines the investment of $28.9 million in funding over the next two years to grow Queensland racing.  It will deliver increased prize money from 1 September 2021, along with infrastructure grants and improved club funding.

Congratulations to Haydon Beattie who has taken top honours in the Queensland Royal Show’s modified Led Steer competition, securing the Woolworths Grand Champion Carcase award.  Haydon, aged 16 from Glamorgan Vale, exhibited a Limousin-cross to also have his name engraved on the coveted Ken Crotty OAM Perpetual Trophy.

The Mayor, Deputy Mayor, the Director of Corporate and Community Services and myself shared an interesting meeting with Mr Simon Cleary.  This avid author shared his next project, which is to follow the Brisbane River from Mt Stanley through to Brisbane and compile stories and experiences into a book.  Interested community members are invited to share their stories with Simon, I am sure he would love to hear from you.  I look forward to reading his book about his experiences in time to come.  I would also encourage a local book launch to recognise this wonderful achievement.

Given the extremely difficult economic times, the BBQ volunteers of the Kilcoy District Progress Alliance Inc. were completely overwhelmed by the very generous offer by a local business identity, Ms Michelle Young from Sunset Tax and Accounting.  Michelle called into the BBQ stall and presented the volunteers with a cheque for $500 to go towards the Christmas Lights fund raising effort.
