South Burnett CTC - Working For Our Community
Vietnam Veterans Day
Today is Vietnam Veterans Day, which is also known as Long Tan Day in memory of the 18 Australians killed at the battle of Long Tan on August 18, 1966. Vietnam Veterans Day has come to symbolise our nation's collective memory of the Vietnam War and in the South Burnett, special services are conducted every year to mark it. In Blackbutt, Blackbutt RSL will be holding a wreath-laying service at the corner of Muir and Douglas streets at 11:00am this morning. Dress is smart casual with full decorations and medals, and the service will be followed by light refreshments back at the RSL. In Nanango, a service will be held at the Cenotaph at 11:00am this morning, followed by light refreshments at the nearby RSL. In Kingaroy, Vietnam Veterans Day commemorations will be held in front of the RSL's flagpoles in Markwell Street from 10:30am, followed with light refreshments in the RSL; in Wondai, a service will be held at the War Memorial in front of Wondai Town Hall in Mackenzie Street, beginning at 11:00am; and in Murgon, a service will be held at Murgon's War Memorial at the corner of Lamb and Gore streets at 10:00am. In light of Australia's recent withdrawal from Afghanistan after almost two decades of involvement, Afghanistan veterans (as well as Vietnam veterans) are particularly encouraged to attend any of these services. You can also find out more about the Vietnam Veterans Association - which looks after the needs of Vietnam vets and helps promote VV Day - on their web site.
Understanding Soils Workshop - Mondure
Independent agricultural consultant David Hall will be presenting a workshop on soil fertility, soil biology and soil health at Mondure Hall from 8:30-am to around 2:00pm today. The workshop is being jointly funded by National Landcare and the Burnett Catchment Care Association and it will also look at the importance of soil testing, how to interpret soil test results and the latest results from the most recent local testing round. The workshop is free but since smoko and lunch will be provided, registration is essential to help plan the catering. You can book a seat by phoning (07) 4166-3898. Note: This workshop will also be held tomorrow at Kumbia.
