Seeking new blood
THE Killarney Red Cross held its AGM on Monday with Bernice Ragh returning as president.
Bernice is assisted by Sandra Eggington as vice president, Nancy Hancock as secretary and Coralie Madsen as treasurer.
In her president's report for 2011-2012, Bernice touched on some of the events the Red Cross had been involved with over the year - the 100th Killarney Show, Lions Christmas in the Park with the fruit salad and ice cream stall, Red Cross Calling and the ever popular Melbourne Cup luncheon.
The Killarney Red Cross meets on the second Monday of each month in the Killarney QCWA rooms.
Bernice said the Red Cross would welcome anyone interested in joining to come along to their meeting.
Killarney Scout Group leader in charge Glenn Reid was pleased to invest three new members into the Killarney Scout Group last week.
Mr Reid invested Clayton Frank, Tom Browne and Ethan Spindler into the Killarney Group. After the parade, Scouts and their family joined in for their own Mini Olympics with javelin, shot put, discus, tug-o-war and chariot races.
Mr Reid is looking at forming a new committee and for another Scout leader to help the Killarney Group.
Over the past few months Mr Reid and Howard Gant have been busy replacing some of the older gear with new gear as they prepare for coming group nights.
Mr Gant said the Scout Hall was about to get a clean up with the Killarney Lions Club preparing to paint the hall. The Scouts received a grant from the Southern Downs Regional Council to replace windows and the decking on the front veranda.
