Our city has many unsung heroes and volunteers that freely give of their time and efforts for the good of our community.
Saturday night, on our way out I noticed local couple Chloe and Nick out walking picking up rubbish with a plastic bag. I stopped and thanked them and they said they picked up rubbish on their weekly walk.
While it’s not good to see rubbish lying around, it’s good to know we have people in our community that go above and beyond, and I know we have a lot of selfless people that do that. Thank you to each of you, and to Chloe and Nick.
Smiles light up Karalee
Steve and Wendy have just turned their amazing Frozen-themed Christmas lights on at Louisa Place, Karalee. I admire the time that so many have taken to decorate their houses again this year. I will be highlighting a house each week until Christmas.
I know most people who decorate their houses don’t do it for rewards other than seeing appreciative visitors. Our grandkids certainly appreciated a photo with Elsa on our visit. She and Olaf will be visiting the display each Friday and Saturday night to bring Christmas cheer.
Cooking up good
Dallas and Kelly have started to bring home cooking to those doing it tough at Queens Park on a Thursday night. It was good to see the crew from Rosie’s in action with drinks and supplies also helping out.
Touch takes off
Ipswich Touch celebrated the reopening of their facilities with the finals on Friday night. It was good to see a healthy turnout to watch and support the 20 teams in action.
The next season will start in February after the Super 8s and if you are interested in being involved, contact Ipswich Touch for details.
Trinity on top
Trinity Doyle has been selected for the U19 Queensland Cricket team to compete in the coming Nationals. The all-rounder, while only 16, is already playing A grade cricket for the Hornets and I’m looking forward to watching her progress.
Lianna Doyle finished school this year and has been selected for the U18 Queensland softball team and will compete in the national titles in January.
Kiernan Tunstall has been selected in the Queensland U15 indoor hockey team, and will be competing in the upcoming national titles.
We wish all of these athletes well in their upcoming championships and futures.
Dare to dream
Speaking of futures, our seniors finished 12 years of schooling last week, and once again I’d like to encourage you all to dare to dream.
Set outrageous goals, and strive to achieve them.
Have a great week
