President's Report: Peter thanked Tony Brame for chairing our meeting. The bricks in the front garden were relayed in order to create a safer environment. A trench was dug by the Council between the island and the creek bank. Wayne Giles has assisted in controlling the reeds in the creek. Visits were made by the Wondai National Seniors, Burra Burri school children and the Jayco Caravan Club. Morning tea and scones provided by members to the Jayco Club. Peter thanked the volunteers for opening the cottage on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Facilities are available for weddings for a small charge. Our Australia Day celebrations were well attended. Timbertown was another busy weekend. A combined church service was held and the collection donated to the local chaplaincy committee. The major project was the relocating of the historic school. Wall boards have been purchased and windows ordered. Quotes for painting and a ramp have been obtained. Len Veivers is to commence the restoration of the school in the near future. This was made possible by a generous donation from Bruce Thomas. A photo of the school is needed to help with the restoration. Peter thanked his supportive committee for their contributions which have enabled the continued development of our heritage site.
