Congratulations to the Brookfield Show Society which will be receiving a boost to its funds this year thanks to the Queensland Government.
The Show Society is due to receive $14 131 in 2012-13 under the Government's Show Societies Grants Program.
The Brookfield Show and the Show Ball are regarded by many as the most important social events on our local community calendar. Around 18, 000 people attended this year's show.
The committee, stewards and everyone else involved in organising and running the show events are all hard-working and dedicated volunteers. As well as the annual show, they also organise the Bush Christmas and the Australia Day Bush Picnic and other community events.

This week (22 - 26 October) is Safety in Schools Week, which makes it an opportune time to be especially mindful of safety in and around our schools.
A number of schools are taking part in a week of planned activities aimed at teaching children how to recognise safety hazards at home, at school, in the car, near water and online.
It's an unfortunate fact that more children in Australia die each year from accidental injury than from cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined.Safety in Schools Week aims to help reduce the incidence of injury through education by encouraging schools to address safety through injury prevention messages, resources and curriculum based activities.

For some months I have been warning about the need to be prepared for bushfire season. With the previous wet season and a recent record-breaking dry period there is plenty of fuel around so it is essential that we be prepared. Have a Bushfire Survival Plan in place and keep an evacuation kit handy. Visit the Rural Fire Service website at www.ruralfire.qld.gov.au for more details.I am also concerned to ensure that we are prepared for summer storms. This includes having an emergency kit filled with batteries, drinking water, canned food and a radio.
