THE Maranoa Retirement Village Auxiliary has paid the second and final installment to Maranoa Regional Council for its contribution to the $2.5m Mitchell Multi Purpose Health Service.

The cheque brought the total contribution to the MRC, towards the 10-bed facility to replace the 20-bed retirement village, to $65,230.

On hand to present the cheque were the chairman of the MRV Sub-Committee, Rob Cornish, Colin Campbell and John Freegard (representing the Mitchell Masonic Lodge), and also the president of the Mitchell Rodeo, Graham Phillips.

The members of the MRV Auxiliary said they wanted to acknowledge the extremely generous donations given towards this amount from the Mitchell Masonic Lodge and the Mitchell Rodeo Committee as well as the generous support from the community.

Council has awarded Kane Construction the contract to build the facility and hope it will be ready by mid 2013.
