Along with Councillors Michael Hagan (Lockyer Valley Regional Council) and Tracey Huges (Redland City Council) the last training unit of the Diploma of Local Government – Elected Members was completed.  The unit titled Effective Decision Making was facilitated by peak Trainer & Senior Advisor Ms Donna Neilson, and a total of 14 units have been completed over the past 16 months.

Once again, sincere congratulations to the Valley of the Lakes Garden Club in its spectacular Esk Garden & Lifestyle Fair and the superb organization and presentation of this well supported and loved local event.  This event grows in number each year and truly meet the expectations of the happy fair visitors.

I met the new Lowood Show President and admired the number of entries in most sections of the Lowood 2019 Show.  The weather was absolutely perfect with the culmination of fireworks Saturday night.

The Lowood Residents Assn held its monthly meeting, and this month the guest speaker was local funeral business Somerset Funerals.  There was a large amount of discussion around the services that this local business offers.

B2B Presentation “Let’s Talk” was hosted by the Kilcoy Chamber of Commerce and Community Inc. There were two presentations, one around social media and the use of facebook to promote businesses, the other around the benefits of securing a connection to local community radio station 101.5. 

Congratulations to the Minden State School and the excellent presentation of the Minden Fete.  Once again, the weather was just glorious for holding such an event.  The entertainment consisted of a magic show (Qld Magic Show), Taekwondo (Bai Rui – Lowood), Dancers (Lockyer Valley Dance Centre), Mixed Martial Arts (Black Dragon Wu Shu – Fernvale), and special performances from prep and each year class.  Well done!
