WELCOME BACK

Well, the all too short Christmas/New Year break is behind us and everyone will have been gearing up for return to work, preparing for school, keeping the weeds under control, mowing the lawns, signing the kids on for sport or for our volunteers getting ready for another year of community service.  With local government elections taking place on 15th March, I look forward to the opportunity of continuing to work with the community and applying my skills and experience in meeting the challenges brought about by creation of Australia’s third largest council.  It will be critical to us all for this amalgamation to be as smooth as possible so that the services, facilities and lifestyle we have grown to enjoy in Pine Rivers are protected.  Have a good year.

TAEKWON DO Feb 2008


Come and join us!

With the start of a New Year come the New Year resolutions, the promise to quit smoking, and 2008 is the year I lose weight and get fit, and that is all going to happen in the first month, sound familiar.  We have all been there at some time in our life, but you know that it can happen, not in the first month, but it can happen.  2008 can be the year you achieve all of the above if you, prioritize, take it one day at a time, set small achievable goals at first, and very important, be disciplined.
