Remembering our ANZACs
At 6am Saturday morning, ANZAC day, I went to the end of my driveway with my family and experienced a unique and what I hope will be a one off ‘Light up the Dawn’ service. The emotion of the Last Post was not lost echoing around the neighbourhood and the silence was respected.
Later in the day I joined the Yandina and Eumundi RSL Virtual ANZAC day service. Thank you and congratulations to Tracey and her team for providing this for us all. You can link to a video of the service via their Facebook page.
One of the first tasks for the new council was the appointment of the Deputy Mayor. It is a great outcome for the Hinterland that Division 1 Councillor, Rick Baberowski was appointed to the role. This is an important symbol for the Hinterland recognising us as a vital part of the Sunshine Coast. I am looking forward to working closely with Cr Baberowski in the Community Portfolio where I will be able to draw on more than 25 years’ experience in community services of which the past 18 years has been specifically in disability services.
It has been an unbelievable start to my role as your new Councillor in the midst of this Global pandemic! I want to share with you how impressive it is and how grateful I am to see the pure dedication and hard work from the council staff to continue with services and develop additional services seemingly overnight to support our community to stay home and stay safe.
I specifically recommend the following areas on the council website;
Covidkindness for everyone in our community and the Business Support pages for our business community. You can find links to both programs on Council’s website: www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
I’m looking forward to the time when we can meet face-to-face again but in the meantime my phone line is very active and the internet is thriving. You can contact me on phone 0437 825 569 and email David.Law@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
