General Business:†

Discussion took place regarding Peterís letter about the old school building and the implications that this would create† for our Committee if we decide to go ahead with this project.† This is a building of significance in the history of Jandowae and would be able to be used to display photos and other memorabilia.† The committee will have to make a decision about the bakerís oven some time soon as this is holding up any plans we need to make in the future.† It was suggested that the bricks from the oven could be used for a path or barbeque and the oven door could be suitably displayed with appropriate signage about the original bakery and oven.† A grant from QGC for $10,000 is to applied for.† This closes in March 2021.† A quote is to be obtained from Ian Wassell.† Cladding would have to be removed from the building.† Peter requested that members give this serious thought so that a decision can be made in the near future.†

Signage:† Ros reported that the new quote is only $200 dearer.† Signs are to be produced for Jandowae Town, Athlone Cottage, The Creamery, Shearerís Quarters, Bakerís Oven, the Windmill and the First School (should we go ahead with this project).† The cost is 5 for $1280 or $464 each.† Members would mount the signs.

David Tuppack is to be asked if the long school desk is at the school.

Phone numbers have been put up on a notice at the Caravan Park† so that the precinct can be opened on request from visitors.

Jan has completed the mowing and weeping willows are to be planted on the island in the creek.†

A letter is to be sent to Daryl† thanking him for the wonderful contribution he has made to the Progress and Heritage Association over the past 3 years as President.

Ros Moved and Margaret seconded that we approach Maree about applying for a grant for the school. A meat tray provided by Graham Neilsen is to be raffled in the near future.
