 Cr Cheryl Gaedtke – Ordinary Meeting 30 June 2021

 Agenda Item # 5 Matters of Public Interest

 With a heavy heart, I share the grief that has eventuated with the recent house fires and loss of lives that took place at Kilcoy and Lowood over the second weekend in June.

Ms Di Taylor has expressed that she is absolutely thrilled with achieving the shortlisting to the upcoming CYA All Stars Conference for writers and illustrators of Children’s, Young Adult and Adult stories.  Di explained that she has written the Young Adult book (her first) based on her parents-in-law’s childhood experience of German occupied southern Holland during WW11.  Good luck to you.

The Linville Hotel was recognised as one of the best five country pubs near Brisbane, well done.

Congratulations once again to the 2021 Esk Garden & Lifestyle Fair for an amazing turn out of approximately 5000 visitors.  I attended the first Fair which was a great success and unbelievably the event seems to grow each year, it has always been a fun morning volunteering on the roster at an entrance gate.

A lovely winter’s afternoon of thoroughbred racing was enjoyed by many local and visiting guests at the Esk Showgrounds.  Along with Ms Jayne McKenzie, I had the pleasure of judging Fashions of the Field at the kind invitation of the Esk Jockey Club and Cr Isidro.

The President and Secretary of the Kilcoy District Tennis Club Assn met with Daniel Row (Council’s Sports & Rec Officer) and myself to learn about the great news for future plans of the Kilcoy Tennis Courts.  It was confirmed at the meeting that Council has provided a budget of $120,000 in the forthcoming financial year to upgrade the Kilcoy Tennis Courts.

A fantastic way to commence the day, climbing Mount Glen Rock to gain a personal perspective of this magical spot, followed by a very informative Steering Committee Meeting.

A sad, but lovely get together over an amazing lunch provided at the Toogoolawah Hotel to farewell the Toogoolawah Lioness Club.  Something good will come from something sad.  The ladies of this group possess a wealth of knowledge and experience that can be shared at a community level, in an ongoing effort to build the local community.

Congratulations to our staff for initiating the Poultry Round Table Forum, which was held at the Somerset Civic Centre and included knowledgeable and experienced industry speakers and guests.  The forum provided a great understanding of the Poultry Industry which is undoubtedly an extremely important trade to our region.  Knowledge is power, and I most definitely gained a much greater insight into this industry.
