Beerwah Charity Sports Carnival
Thanks to all the troopers who braved the rain and came out to support a much curtailed program last Saturday. Despite the downpours the day brought out the spirit of our great country communities and those who came along enjoyed a great display of produce, community stalls and local strong men and women. It was also a perfect excuse to buy twice as many home made cakes and egg and bacon rolls as usual to help out the community stall holders - all in all a great day, only let it be a bit dryer next year!

Congratulations to all the groups who applied for the grants.
I was pleased to attend two important local community group annual general meetings (AGM's) and on behalf of the community thank the outgoing executive of the Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce and Glasshouse Mountains Advancement Network (GMAN) for their hard work and congratulate both of the new management committees. Both reported on an extremely busy past year and both signalled equally busy years ahead. These groups help create the very fabric of our communities and a special thank you to those new faces willing to assist on management committees perhaps for the first time.
