Do you live in Glasshouse Country - between Beerburrum and Mooloolah Valley and inland to Peachester? Is there a small business or employee that has gone above and beyond for you? Is it a real estate agent like Glasshouse Property Sales, a butcher like Dean at Mooloolah Valley Meats or someone who has cared for your “fur baby” like the team at Landsborough and Glass House Mountains Vet Surgeries? If so, you’ve got just one week to nominate them for this year’s “Glassies” - the Glass House Small Business Awards! Just head to www.andrewpowell.com.au

As always, huge thanks to Glasshouse Country Chamber of Commerce Inc. President Jenny for their support of the awards 😊

It’s time to say “goodbye”…for now…to the amazing Natasha Odgers. For more than ten years, Natasha has provided the “community glue” across the Sunshine Coast hinterland through her community development work. You may have seen her constantly smiling face at Glasshouse Mountains Neighborhood Centre, Morris House Landsborough Neighbourhood Centre, Maleny Neighbourhood Centre or the Mooloolah Valley Community Association Inc. & Community Centre. Natasha and her family are taking a break and travelling the world. And I suspect we will all realise, even more, how much we’ve relied on her when she’s gone. Have a super time, Tash! So richly deserved. ... See MoreSee Less
