FROM THE EDITOR
By the time you are reading this, dear reader, it might very well be winter! Bring. It. On.
We had a good little session at the Club on Friday 25th May for our Thank-A-Volunteer Sundowner. There were lots of dedicated volunteers not there—so please accept THIS as a big THANK YOU for everything you contribute to our vibrant community. Those who were there enjoyed a drink on us and some delicious nibbles (thanks Ray from the Club Kitchen!). Thanks also to the Club for hosting us again, always so convenient and accommodating!
It’s a busy couple of weeks ahead on both the work and social calendars, events galore are detailed in the 30 pages following this one. There’s heaps of juicy content in this June edition, I hope you like reading. There are some notes from the Quairading Farmer’s Co-op worth reading and a bonus page from me about keeping your hard earned dollars local. We’re also extending a helping hand to our many local clubs to get your new constitutions in order, that three year window to update is nearing its end (check out page 44 and 45 for more info).
The time has come again for us to put a call out for phone book updates as we prepare to produce the 2018 edition of the local Quairading Phone Book and Business Directory. We update this book every two years and launch sales at the Quairading Ag Show (this year on Saturday 8th October). We’ve included an update form at the back of this edition, simply fill out the info you’d like us to print in the book and deliver, post, email or carrier pigeon it to us (any method bar telepathy is fine). There’s also an online form on our website for you internet-ers. Updating this book is a massive job so we greatly appreciate your proactive and prompt updates.
Props to all y’all sports reporters, after a light on couple of months our sports pages (at the back of the Banksia Bulletin) are bursting at the seams with comprehensive reports from clubs aplenty—there’s always room for more though!
May you all have sufficient rainfall and dry firewood for the month ahead. Yes I would like it both ways.

PS: We look even better on the internet!
You can view the FULL Banksia Bulletin online, every month, in a cool little flip booky thing on our website. The photos are in colour and some of the titles are too! It’s a very visually pleasing experience, in my humble opinion.
