The LAC hosted a celebratory dinner dance in September which highlighted the history and dedication of the Toogoolawah Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) and LAC members over the past century.

The Toogoolawah LAC formed in 1923 and has served the Toogoolawah, Esk, Colinton, Mount Stanley, Linville and Somerset Dam districts continuously since that time.

In addition, thirteen applications for rates remissions were received and approved in round 1 of 2023/24 Community Assistance Grants. The grants policy allows eligible community organisations to apply for an annual remission of rates for the properties they operate on.

Councillor Jason Wendt said, “I can’t praise the people who volunteer for these organisations highly enough. The time and effort they put into our communities helps form the character and liveability of our towns.

“The region would not have the same vibrancy and cohesiveness without the invaluable work of volunteers.”

The successful applicants for rates remissions were Brisbane Valley Pony and Hack Club; Esk Bowls and Community Club Inc; Folk Art Cooperative; Glamorgan Vale Tennis Club Inc; Hopetoun Masonic Lodge; Linville Progress Association; Lions Club Duckadang; Lowood and District Golf Club; Lowood and District Memorial Bowls Club Inc; Lowood Masonic Lodge; Moore Soldiers Memorial Hall; Returned Service League Esk and Returned Services League Lowood.
