Kedron Brook Catchment Branch-AGM and General MeetingThe Annual General Meeting for our Kedron Brook Catchment Branch-Wildlife Queensland was held in most suitable surroundings at our President's abode. Despite the developing wind and rainfall outside, the vital number needed for a quorum was met and a most enjoyable and interesting delivery of the yearly report was given by our President, Robert Standish-White.
Despite the relatively small numbers of members in our branch, the successful outcomes gained through the past year are a testament to the enthusiasm and energy of our members. Interaction with our Network volunteers works well both ways and the assistance from the staff of both our local government bodies is greatly appreciated.
Kedron Brook is a wonderful catchment and it is a pleasure to meet and enjoy the company of our members and friends! (Sign up here!!!)
