On Tuesday 4th April, we’re hosting a Public Debate with the high school students from 10am in the BER Room at QDHS. You’re all more than welcome to come along and watch, see the flyer on page 10. Our hotly anticipated Health and Wellness event is on Saturday 8th April from 10am until 2pm, come a have some of those health myths busted and grab a smoothie from the DIY Smoothie Bar —more info on page 12. AND we’re doing a Supermarket Tour at the Co-op with our local Wheatbelt Health Promotion Officer on Tuesday 26th April to help you decipher nutrition labels and understand what you’re buying.
We’ve also got Footy Tipping running again, with weekly cash prizes, end of season prizes and all extra proceeds being donated to the development of the park between the CRC and the Vintage Club. It’s not too late to join either, we’ll just give you the away teams for each round you’ve missed! Just $50 each to enter, give us a call or an email or a visit to register and you can do your tips online OR drop them in the box each week.
Boogie Roos Wheatbelt is also up and running again, lead by Quairading’s very own Caitlin Cowcill! We’ve been lucky enough to secure grant funding to run TEN FREE SESSIONS here at the Quairading CRC. The first session kicked off on Friday 17th March with about 20 happy babies and toddlers (and their Mums of course!) grooving and bopping away for an hour in the lovely Art Space. The next session is Friday 7th April from 9:30am, the next 8 sessions will be advertised there after.
What do you think of the MASSIVE happy, smiling faces in the main street? I’m damn impressed they’re all still there, to be honest. It’s called the Inside Out Project and was a very fun one to organise. Pending more funding sometime in the future, we can add to it, and add to it, and add to it!
One last thing. Something has been totally irking lately. You may call it petty, it’s the use of apostrophes. If you face the daily battle of do-I-or-don’t-I when it comes to the use of the little devils, check out page 33 and sort it out once and for all! Then we can share the delightful feeling of superiority as we all use them properly, and look like well to do members of society together!
See you at the footy, old timer!
