Brigadier Chris Field AM, who grew up in Lismore, is coordinating the defence force effort in helping the areas in Queensland effected by Cyclone Denise.
He went to Kadina High School, with Karen, where he was school captain.
I acknowledged him in Parliament yesterday.
Paige Humphreys celebrated her birthday a couple of days early this year.
At a special fundraising event last week hundreds of family and friends came together to say Happy Birthday and also a chance to donate to help her get to Chicago for life saving surgery. It was a great night. Congratulations to all involved.
Diana and her team at Quota International have raised $300,000 over the years hosting their annual Quota Craft & Garden Fair.
This money then goes to many worthy local community groups. Karen and I recently attended the 16th Annual Friendship High Tea at Summerland House Farm.
Thank you to the guest speakers, Karen and Lisa for your insight and the work you do in our community. Congratulations to Fay, Ann and Colleen on being awarded the Annette Ferguson Memorial Quota Community Women of the Year Award.
Congratulations to Norco for winning the 2017 Canstar Blue Award for Most Satisfied Customers.
Australia’s milk drinkers scored Norco an outstanding 5-star rating for overall satisfaction and also scored them exceptionally high for taste, freshness, value for money and packaging design.
Norco is now one of the few remaining true Australian farmer-owned dairy co-operatives in this country, with more than 330 members.
Last month the Government announced some great news for families.
We have removed the “cap” that limits the amount families can claim on childcare, and have also increased the rebate from 50% to 85%.
This will put money back into the pockets of families and were designed with the needs of regional communities in mind.
