…………..

May 2017 Guest speaker was Baw Baw shire councillor Jess O’Donnell who told us about her younger years, is married with four children three of which are step children and how she works part time as a hair dresser.

She is studying Law and International Relations and is proud to call Drouin home. She is also the youngest member to be on council. When asked what she would like to see in Drouin and other parts of the shire she responded..

The reinstatement of Community Partnership. For young people to be able to share their ideas and needs. ( there is a Freezer Fund sponsored by the Victoria Gov’t for music events) Volunteering which is important to all age groups.

What does she see is missing in Drouin? A community house, a multi purpose building, more parking especially for our op shop workers and warehouse pickup zone. Our population is 17,000 and growing rapidly.

The meeting concluded with Anne sharing a prayer for volunteers followed by afternoon tea.

Next meeting Wed June 7th at Christ Church
