HOPE Office News

June 2019

Good afternoon folks,

The month of May was interesting in a number of ways.

Firstly, the recruitment of new admin and research volunteers was off-set by the departure of several active volunteers.
So, if you have some spare time and talents to offer, please contact the office on phone 07 4639 2135 or email office@hopeaustralia.org.au to register your voluntary interest(s).

Secondly, our National Volunteer Week “thank you” morning tea for volunteers for poorly attended.
In fact, attendance at HOPE meetings so far this year have been very low.

I urge members and supporters in the Toowoomba region to make an effort to attend our Ordinary Meeting on Saturday 8 June at 22 Vacy St, Toowoomba, commencing at 10am.
Please RSVP by Thursday, 6 June to assist with seating and catering arrangements.

A grant of $4,947.50 from Toowoomba Regional Council will be used to undertake drone (i.e. UAV - Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) survey of 2 small sections of creeks in the Crows Nest and Gowrie Junction areas.

Lastly, our information display at Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF) 2019 on Sunday 26 May was well received by the public. A total of $262.60 in donations was raised. A big thanks to Miriam for providing transport and company on the day.
