It is always a busy day as I make my way around the electorate and try and get to as many ANZAC services a possible.

Again this year I was truly humbled to be involved with so many of our community groups and spend quality time at each of the events that I was able to fit into my calendar.

This year I attended the following events to pay my respects –

Maleny Dawn Service

Mt Mee Sunrise service

Watched the march into Caboolture Town Centre in Caboolture

Attended the Woodford service

Marched and participated in the Glasshouse Mountains RSL service

Without a doubt, the highlight of my week was celebrating Wamuran resident and good friend, Howard Walter’s 70th birthday. Dubbed the ‘Mayor of Wamuran’, most of the town turned up for the monthly Wamuran Sports Dinner last Friday night which also served as a 70th birthday celebration for Howard.  Howard and his wife Jenny are one in a million and they have given, and continue to give, so much of their time to our community.  The Wamuran Sports Club opens its doors for dinner every first Friday of the month, be sure to drop by for a great meal if you are ever in town.

Other events on my calendar this past week include –

  • Real Food Festival launch lunch – such an amazing Festival all about food so make sure you get along to this two day event in Maleny on 12/13 September – www.realfoodfestivals.com.au/
  • Spent a day in the Nanango electorate with Member Deb Frecklington and paid a visit to the South Burnett Energy Centre
  • Attended a citizenship ceremony in Morayfield to welcome the newly recognised Australian citizens who call the Moreton Bay District home
  • Spent a day at the Ekka for a Shadow Cabinet meeting
  • Attended the Mt Mee Frolic on the Mountain Festival
  • Held a mobile office in Wamuran
  • Dropped in on the Palmwoods ES & A Bank Anniversary celebrations
  • Spent time with Mt Mee resident Rowena Crouch and her Mum who was turning 100 last Sunday.  Mrs Boynton now lives in Erowal Village in Maleny so it was great to be able to stop by and share in the celebrations of this momentous occasion.

During the last few months I have had countless people in Glass House contact me with projects they would like to see delivered in our community. There is no shortage of projects we can work on together and my challenge as the local Member will be to ensure I work as hard as I can to accommodate the needs of people in all 20 of the individual townships that make up the Glass House electorate.

The Glass House ‘Fighting For’ wishlist will continue to be a work in progress and anything you identify in your community can be added to the list. All suggestions are welcome at any time so feel free to email my office as you identify something– glass.house@parliament.qld.gov.au.

Some of the local issues we have compiled so far – .

  • Palmwoods/Eudlo – the North Coast Rail Duplication, more funding for sporting groups including cricket, soccer and tennis, upgrades to the Jubilee Drive intersection
  • Chevallum – a permanent school crossing supervisor
  • Montville – pedestrian crossing at the Info Centre, roundabout at the Western Avenue
  • Maleny – upgrades to Maleny-Kenilworth Road, new indoor Aquatic Centre, ‘kiss and go’ for Maleny State School, upgraded police station, pedestrian crossing at Maleny-Stanley River Road
  • Witta – funding for sports development
  • Conondale – upgrade to Maleny-Kenilworth Road, pool upgrades
  • Peachester – flashing lights at Peachester School
  • Beerwah – traffic signals at the Beerwah State School intersection
  • Glasshouse Mountains – re-opening the Glasshouse Mountains Holiday Park
  • Beerburrum – increased funding for community groups like the Beerburrum School of Arts
  • Elimbah – upgrades to King John Creek Bridge,
  • Caboolture – parking at Caboolture Hospital, ongoing support for the Caboolture Historical Village, Wamuran – speed reduction near County Drive
