EOI – Effective Meetings for Community Groups
Learn how to run effective meetings for your community group at an interactive video conference with a professional from WA Council of Social Services (WACOSS).
You can ask questions and understand what should/shouldn’t be moved, motioned and/or carried.
It sounds simple but each person and club may have a different method, let’s all get on the same page.
FREE to attend and will be held in May at the CRC.
Please contact the CRC on 9863 4829 or email email@example.com if you are interested.

Well Done Robbie Atkins
Recently Robbie Atkins sister (who lives in Pinjarra) ran a fundraising auction to raise funds for Ovarian Cancer Research.
Robbie assisted, in his own time and expense, with Barbara taking his truck with farm produce and goods to Pinjarra.
Robbie was also supported with donations from generous local businesses namely Wishbone Transport, Dumbleyung Engineering, Dumbleyung General Store, Dumbleyung Tavern (GODI) and Dumbleyung Ag Supplies.
The pleasing results from this effort helped raise over $30,000.00.

Restoration of Bain’s estate Valiant Charger
Darryl and Cherelle Hardman from Desert Sweet in Carnarvon purchased the Bain brothers Valiant Charger from the Bain’s estate clearing sale. They recently sent through the photo of the car as it looks now while being restored (pictured below).
The Easter Raffle made $223; thank you to everybody involved. The winners are Karen Ward, M.Coad and Lyn Wilson – congratulations.
We will be harvesting yacons in late autumn so keep watch for a date and time and come along for a taste test. If you haven’t tasted them before they are very tasty, juicy and crunchy. For more details, and to learn more about the health benefits yacons may have, google ‘yacon’.
Workers to the Community Garden would appreciate anyone in the community dropping by on Thursday mornings for conversations or to assist in the weekly working bee from 9am. There is a job for all abilities from sitting and writing, digging, watering, and raking, to constructive advice.
Be proud of your town by assisting when possible.
