I am very much enjoying the vibe of Quairading right now. We’re in that final sprint of the marathon that has been 2017. Everyone’s (somewhat) happily going hell for leather; getting crops off, starting work on resolutions made about this time last year, crossing jobs off lists that have probably been there a bit too long and some fantastic people are even getting organised for (grinches stop reading now…) Christmas!
We’ve got a pretty full calendar this month at the CRC with a range of events and workshops to round out the year. And by “month” it seems we mean “week”. This is going to be fun!
Employability Workshop: Tuesday 5th December (writing resumes and applying for jobs)
Cuppa with a Copper: Wednesday 6th December (free cuppas and chatting to the local cop)
Business After Hours: Wednesday 6th December (networking drinks for biz people)
Facebook for Oldies*: Thursday 7th December (it’s not that scary!)
Movie Arvo: Wednesday 13th December (kicking back with a good Christmas flick)
*I trust that no-one has taken offence to our use of the term ‘oldies’, it’s of course meant in the most endearing and respectful way possible!
We’ve had a big few weeks lately pulling together a bunch of grant funding applications which will (hopefully) help our little piggy bank for some of next year’s events and initiatives. If you’re one of those fantastically organised people who are running a 2018 diary already (or are like me and use a financial year diary to avoid that daunting task each December) here’s some MORE dates to save:
Thursday 8th March: Women’s Business (seminar on all things business and personal finance and lunch, oh and wine)
Sunday 18th March: Tour de Quairading 2.0 (riding bikes, answering questions, eating sausage sizzles)
In this Banksia Bulletin, we’ve included the report prepared by Anna from CreativeIQ from our Thrive to Survive community chat held on Monday 30th October—have a read! I’m definitely still processing and planning where to from here (but not without plans altogether), so feel free to share your post-event thoughts and advice. Email, call or pop into the CRC for a chat.
We’ll be publishing one more Banksia Bulletin this year. Get your Christmas wishes, holiday opening hours, party invitations and advertisements (and any other content) in by 12pm on Tuesday 19th December, then pick up a copy from 2pm on Thursday 21st December.
Keep on truckin’.
