(Since the last Ordinary Council meeting, I have attended)

26 February Kilcoy District Progress Association Inc. AGM & Monthly Meeting
The meeting was poorly attended; however, a quorum was obtained and congratulations must go to the outgoing committee, and who once again undertook the same roles for the next twelve months. Difficulties were expressed around the Kilcoy roadworks and the associated reduced attendance at the Yowie Markets. It was agreed that the Yowie Markets for the foreseeable future be held one Saturday per month, in preference to two Saturdays a month.

A very warm and heartfelt ceremony. A plaque was attached to the Jimna Public Hall, forever in the locals’ memories.

29 February Nudes to fall from skies – Skydive Ramblers – Toogoolawah
Cr Brieschke and I attended the home of Skydive Ramblers to watch the skydiver formation beat the previous number of 22. Unfortunately, the record was not broken, however it was matched by Skydive Ramblers. The event was held to raise funds to find a cure of Multiple Sclerosis.

The membership discussed the need and associated benefits for the village tennis courts to be refurbished.

A well organised AGM, congratulations to this very impressive local association. I am proud to be part of this group.

For those who are not standing for re-election, Councillors Hall and Ogg, may you enjoy your retirement and that you succeed and are filled with happiness with the next chapter of your lives. You have done your region proud over the length of your involvement with the Somerset Regional Council. Best wishes to Council staff and many thanks for their assistance over the past four years. And as I keep telling our residents, our region is heading for exciting times.

Councillor Cheryl Gaedtke for a strong Somerset Region
Over the past three days, I met Mayors, Councillors, Council staff from all states and territories of our great country.Equality with sharing the fiscal revenue pie with other levels of government is strongly supported by research and hard cold stats.

Many discussions took place about important matters and what Local Gov needs to do to assist.I was completely captivated by Stan Grant and his keynote address around global democracy. Thought provoking!! I will definitely be rewatching the video of this presentation.The Ukraine's Ambassador, Vasyl Myroshnychenko's address brought tears to our eyes. A special (and supportive) motion about this horrific conflict was raised and passed by ALGA. Australian councils have shown their support for Ukraine today, unanimously passing a motion of peace-seeking solidarity at the 2022 National General Assembly (NGA) of Local Government in Canberra. ...
