Notes

T his issue ... There have been a lot of changes with the Green of late: a revamp, new website, new procedures, new media kit and a pretty new team to boot. Thanks everyone for your support and enthusiasm. Pulling together this issue really felt like everything was now falling into place. Last week the Green was lucky enough to have the lovely, enthusiastic Sarah from Noosa Pengari Steiner School doing work experience. You’ll find a couple of her assignments are featured in this issue.

C hamber breakfast meeting At the recent Eumundi Chamber breakfast meeting at Nest on Memorial Dr, Bohemian Bungalow and Imperial Hotel co-owner Michael Arnett gave a rousing speech about the need for Eumundi business owners to protect and grow their investment by opening the doors and allowing Eumundi to become a Photo by Elfi Fairchild seven day a week town. Michael also mentioned that he had had positive feedback from people travelling from out of town about the Imperial Lionheart’s new look and hoped it would become a drawcard for visitors. The idea of establishing a Tourism Eumundi committee was raised and three chamber members volunteered to develop the idea.

Business J oe ’ s deg u station dinner with a twist Tracey Hunt

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Another successful wine dinner was held at Joe’s Waterhole last Thursday night, showcasing some premium wines from one of Australia’s oldest family owned wineries, Yalumba Wines. Once again the food prepared and served by Phil and Diane Marino was faultless and impeccably matched with the wines. The night’s highlight was guest speaker Jane Ferrari. Originally a wine maker, Jane is now ambassador for Yalumba Wines and the “signatory” of the 2010 vintage “The Signature”.

N E S T @ T he O ld B akery What and where is your business? In the Main Street of Eumundi, Memorial Drive.

How long have you been in business in Eumundi? About one and a half years What made you choose Eumundi to base your business? No I-D-E-A ... I was living in Victoria and I wanted to have a shop. I heard over the phone that there was a shop available at the old bakery in Eumundi. When I heard this, something happened inside of me and I knew that was it, I had to move. I had never heard about Eumundi before that day. I got in the car and drove for three days ...

The biggest winner on the night with the great honour of “The Best Palate in Eumundi ” was bestowed upon Warwick (Wazza) Millward. I am not entirely sure how he did it but after great laughter and much back slapping we all settled down to a cheeky chocolate fondue for dessert.

What is the best part about working here? The people. From day one, I have formed great friendships and it was easy for me to connect to people here because everyone is so open and loving. What is the worst thing you’ve found about working here? That I love the Nest so much, I spend all my time there. No, seriously, it’s a fantastic place to hang out and mingle so I even spend time there on my days off. Eumundi Country Women’s Assoc. held their annual meeting on 22 July. The incoming office bearers are (From right); Dixie Wandell treasurer, Barbara Robinson vice president, Robin Bryan international officer, Patricia Meek vice president, Dell Ford secretary, Florence Saunders president and Sara Faddy division president.

What would you like to see change in our business district? I really hope that new and existing businesses will open seven days to put Eumundi on the map outside of market days. Eumundi is such a great place and it has so much to offer. It should be available to all - visitors and locals alike - on any day of the week.

Over 60 Rotarians, partners and guests came together in the Green Room at the Imperial LionHeart Hotel this July to celebrate Eumundi Rotary Club’s official welcome into the world wide fellowship of Rotary. Immediate Past District Governor Trevor Taylor performed the honour of delivering the charter document signed by Immediate Past Rotary International President Ron Burton, to the members of Eumundi Rotary Club. “It is great to see a new club being chartered … and I congratulate the Rotary Club of Cooroy in having the foresight,” Trevor said. The Charter President, Les Godwin, urged people to

engage with Rotary. “We have the opportunity here in Eumundi and the districts of Doonan, Verrierdale and beyond to attract new members who are willing to give their time and service above themselves,” Les said. “Rotary is what we make it and it can be satisfying, inspiring and fun in the knowledge that we can all make a difference by pooling our energies to assist those in need, at international, national and community levels.” Eumundi Rotary Club members meet fortnightly on a Thursday at 5.30pm for 6.00pm at the CWA Hall, Memorial Dr, Eumundi. Les Godwin, President, Rotary Club of Eumundi 0411 877 346.

Cr Greg Rogerson Division 10

On Thursday 24 July Council unanimously agreed to oppose any boundary realignment for Eumundi, Doonan, Verrierdale and Weyba Downs. Right from the beginning I saw that this issue had the potential to open a pandora’s box for proposed boundary changes that could even creep as far as the Maroochy River and create a “north” and “south” division within the Sunshine Coast. This type of political upheaval breeds uncertainty and that would be far from ideal for our business community. Business people need certainty and stability to instill them with the confidence to invest in an area. There was not one economic, logistical or practical reason put forward by the EDV group to say why they should join the Noosa Council area. In one of the meetings I had with the EDV group I put the question to them that if they were to join Noosa Council tomorrow, what would the benefits be to them? Their answer was, “can we get back to you on that?” For me their answer summed up the whole situation, because if they had to have time to conjure up a response, there wasn’t going to be a really valid reason. I also attended community forums about this proposed change and at one of those meetings in Verrierdale when a show of hands was called it was categoric, that more were

raised in favour of staying with Sunshine Coast Council. A current Noosa councilor who attended the second EDV community forum also commented to me that in his opinion the majority of people at that meeting were clearly in favour of staying than going to Noosa. Mayor Mark Jamieson’s comments on this issue have run true with me and all my fellow councilors – “enough is enough”.

Members of Eumundi’s Rotary Club accept the Charter from Trevor Taylor.

Eumundi and its surrounding areas within Division 10 are extremely important to me and to the entire Sunshine Coast Community and this debate has not changed that one bit. I am continuing to move forward and commit to the betterment of Eumundi by fixing up The Terraces in collaboration with various community associations. I’m also committed to the upgrades in Dick Caplick Park and the many other important current and future projects for the area. Finally I’d like to applaud the strong and proactive approach of the people who publicly stood their ground on the EDV issue and voiced their concern about what I perceived to be a small minority group that wanted to change history on little more than a whim and a gut feel. Now let’s all get on with making our community as great as it can be.

Arts Market characters photo project The Original Eumundi Markets has embarked on an exciting photographic project with renowned local photographer Alain Bouvier that will see the development of a collection of portraits of artists and designers from within the market community.

and the stallholders he plans to feature will include a cross section of talent. “We want to celebrate the makers and creators – the artists, designers and foodies - the personalities who make Eumundi Markets … the iconic market that it is,” he said.

Entitled Market Characters Make it, Bake it, Sew it, Grow it, the project is being supported by a Regional Arts Development Fund grant through the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.

The photographs will then be exhibited at Discover Eumundi and featured in online galleries. In the longer term, the collection will ensure the Eumundi community retains a professional record of its iconic local market.

After 19 years it was Comedy & Consomme’s final performance recently and the Indee’s traditional cast and crew party after the final performance was the usual great fun. Now it’s onwards to Children’s Classic Theatre in the SeptOct season with The Reluctant Dragon. Perhaps not quite as well known as Kenneth Grahame’s other major children’s work, Wind in the Willows, it nonetheless has just as much charm. The production will feature a number of local youngsters and adults telling the story of a reclusive little dragon who only wants to live in peace. He chooses a cave above the village of Deepdene to live in and is discovered by the village children who adore him. However when the village elders find out about the dragon, they send for St George, The Dragon Slayer. Trouble is St George by this time is so old he’s living in a retirement village and doesn’t want to fight. So he has a chat to the dragon and they decide to “fix” the fight to appease the elders. Put it in the diary for the school holidays. It commences Friday 26 Sept for two weekends.

What's in the Spotlight Maroochydore City Centre An exciting chapter in the Sunshine Coast’s history is set to begin following approval of the Maroochydore City Centre development scheme.

N o movie review

Matthew Brindley

The next movie screening at Eumundi World Cinema is No, a Chilean drama directed by Pablo Larraín in 2012. In 1988, with pressure from the international community to legitimize his regime, military dictator Augusto Pinochet calls for a referendum to decide his permanence in power. The leaders of the opposition persuade a young daring advertising executive René Saavedra – played by Mexican actor Gael García Bernalto – to head their campaign. Saavedra and his team conceive of a bold plan to win the election and free their country from oppression. The historical moment of the film is when the advertising tactics came to be widely used in political campaigns. The film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 85th Academy Awards. Eumundi World Cinema screens award-winning movies from around the world on the second Wednesday of every month. Complimented by excellent food, short films, prizes and great people - it’s more than just a movie club. eumundiworldcinema.com 9

The tall and graceful beauty read excerpts from her bio book Piano Lessons and played entrancing pieces that stirred emotions with each note. The award-winning book tells the story of Anna and her charismatic piano teacher Eleanora Sivan. Anna was nine years old when she first met the

Russian world-class pianist and the story goes on to document what Mrs Sivan brought to Goldsworthy’s lessons. Piano Lessons is a beautiful life story of an exceptional classical pianist and her remarkable piano teacher.

Kids C hildren ’ s F estival to celebrate spring Danielle Flint Anticipation is building as Noosa Pengari Steiner School parents busily organise their 18th Children’s Festival on 31 August in Doonan. The Parents and Friends Community chose a “Step into Spring” theme for this year’s celebration moving the day to herald in the change of season. The focus of the children’s festival is on creating a special event for children and families. Parents of the school from Primary through to Secondary organise and work on all of the craft stalls, cafes, entertainment, as well as parking and first aid. Baking is an important part of preparations and well over a hundred cakes of all shapes, sizes and dietary requirements appear in the legendary Cake House on the day. Parents provide produce and plants and prepare for a wide variety of food stalls from a children’s cafe to a curry house. It takes about six months of planning prior to the day and as the date draws nearer a festival buzz is felt throughout the school as conversations, meetings, workshops and group cooking days prepare for the wonderful day. Parents often acquire new skills by supporting children with activities such as wood work, clay play, candle making, pot painting, tye-dying t-shirts and weaving spring nature garlands. Children become involved in helping at the Festival too by clearing tables and operating the fresh lemonade stand. The responsibility for the children increases each year from class five until they reach class 11 when they manage their own stall. The parent and staff body includes members of one of Australia’s most vibrant Irish bands, the local band Barleyshakes, who will bring their dynamic entertainment to the stage on the day, as well as recruit other musicians. This year the Cheap Fakes and Nadia Sunde will be helping to create a fantastic festival atmosphere.

Aden McGuigan and Hugo Lamarque Ignite English ESS Mrs Merry, an equestrian park owner, is up every morning at 5.30am to teach the advanced skills as well as the basic steps of horse riding. Her equestrian centre called Merrypark has been established for the last 21 years with 11 years in Melbourne and has operated in Eumundi for the last 10 years. The equestrian centre started because of Mrs Merry’s love of horses and the desire to share her knowledge and help with other people with similar interests in horses. Merrypark offers horse riding lessons for all ages and all levels from beginners to advanced as well as trail rides for children.

Mrs Merry teaches basic riding, balance, suppleness, relaxation and the ability to be able to feel how the horse is moving and to move with it in harmony. She also offers agistment at this facility for people who have inadequate room at their properties. Mrs Merry trains children to compete as a confident and competent rider in competition as well as normal riding. Merrrypark is lucky enough to have its own Olympic size arena in which riders can perfect their skills. To become involved in an equestrian business people need to have some knowledge of horses and be involved with horses, whether you own your own horse or have joined a club. They also need to know how to look after horses and find an appropriate equestrian centre to begin working to gain hands-on experience.

Alasdair Scott Eumundi Aquatic Centre’s Troy Carlson has recently won gold in the 100m Butterfly at the Australian Schools Swimming Championships in Melbourne. The National championships are the culminating event from school swimming carnivals. Best swimmers from each school then compete at Districts, then Regional, then State and finally Nationals. Troy was the only swimmer from Eumundi club competing at the Nationals. To add to his victory Troy was also fourth in 50m Butterfly and fifth in 200m Freestyle. Troy’s coach Richard McLean is extremely proud of his champion.

Wayne Celeban

Health Matters Ochre Health Eumundi would like to welcome GP, Hoda Morris to our clinic as of September 15th 2014. Hoda has worked in the Cooroy area for a number of years and has now decided to join the team at Ochre Health Eumundi. With an interest in women’s health and child health she will complement our growing team. Physiotherapy services:

Dr David Heppell

In addition to our Hoda, we also have a Physiotherapist joining us every Friday afternoon from Friday 1st August 2014. Dietician: Dietician clinics continue to run every other Tuesday. What is stress? Most of us are in some way affected by an increased amount of stress that often contributes to reduced health and vitality. Quite often the term stress is used to describe both the stressor and stress response. Stressors are regarded as stimulating factors that lead to a stress response, and the stress response is quite simply our body’s physical and emotional reaction to a particular event or situation involving pressure or demand. The causes of stress are virtually endless ranging from dysfunctional thought patterns, debt and relationship dynamics; to the painfully slow driver you always find yourself behind when you’re running late for work. All too commonly we are finding ourselves stressed as a result of having too much to do with too little time. Since primitive times our stress response has allowed us to act quickly in dangerous or threatening situations by enhancing our physical and mental ability. It’s our body’s natural way of rising to a challenge or difficult situation that requires focus, stamina, strength or heightened awareness. This response occurs when our nervous system initiates the production of the hormones adrenalin, norepinephrine and cortisol. These hormones increase breathing, heart rate, blood pressure and metabolism. Blood vessels open wider to increase blood flow to large muscle groups, and the liver releases stored glucose to increase the body’s energy resulting in heightened performance. When this natural response to life’s challenges

Dr Patti Slegers

becomes a regular activity it leads to the reduction of health resulting in a wide range of physical and mental imbalances. Stress is something that has become increasingly more difficult to avoid; however by developing simple and effective strategies to manage life’s sticky situations and reduce the impact on our health, we reduce the risk of potential chronic illness.

Please note: You do not have to be an existing patient at Ochre Health Eumundi to access these clinics, but you will need a referral from your GP or Specialist.

So why does the effect of stress differ with each individual?

Opening hours: Mon - Fri 8.30am - 5pm

In Ayurveda we have a concept known as “kavaigunya” which means “defective or compromised” tissue. This allows us to understand why stress may affect different people in different ways. As a result of genetics and exposure to environmental factors we are susceptible to developing various physiological weaknesses due to compromised tissue. If for example there is family history of cardiovascular disease, combined with long term stress, one may develop a heart-related disease due to an inherent defective cardiovascular system. Stress may be experienced in many ways such as irritable bowel, colds, coughs, anxiety, depression, fatigue, insomnia, irritability, high blood pressure, eczema and chronic infections. Regardless of which tissue weakness one may be more prone to suffer from; there are some simple Ayurvedic techniques which can be used to help calm the nervous system and help reduce the release stress hormones. Next issue Wayne will look at 10 ways to reduce harmful effects of stress. sunshinecoastayurveda.com 16

Many local families have been hosting students on the student exchange programme recently. The Bradley household has had Mibo and Melody, two homestay students from the Nest 13-2014 Taiwan Study Tour organised by Noosa District State High School, staying for the past 20 days. The girls have been enjoying and experiencing the cultural diversity of our Sunshine Coast lifestyle and we’ve enjoyed what we sometimes take for granted: a BBQ breakfast at Noosa Sound, national park walks, seeing dolphins - even swimming during our beautiful winter days. I think it’s been a wonderful opportunity for students of both cultures. Here are two dishes we have made to make our girls feel at home. Chicken Stir Fry

Method:

• 3 tbsp peanut oil

Heat wok and add 1 tbsp oil to coat pan.

• 3 small chicken breasts cut into strips • 1 onion, sliced thinly • 2 garlic cloves crushed • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated • 1 red capsicum cut into strips • Handful of beans, halved

When hot add ½ the chicken and stir-fry for 2-3 mins until sealed. Remove chicken to a plate, add the balance of chicken and cook for a further 2-3 mins. Remove chicken to a plate.

• 1 bok choy, roughly chopped

Add 1 tbsp oil, heat and cook onion and capsicum for two mins.

• ¼ cabbage, roughly chopped

Add garlic and ginger and cook for a further min.

• 2-3 tbsp soy sauce

Add chicken, soy sauce and spring onion. Stir-fry 1 min. Toss in noodles till all combined.

• 2 spring onions, sliced • Cooked noodles

• 1 tbsp peanut oil • 600g pork mince • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped • 2 tsp grated ginger • 60ml oyster sauce • 60ml soy sauce • 4-5 spring onions, sliced • 100g bean sprouts • Iceberg lettuce

{ T H E G R E E N 7 August 2014

Add garlic and ginger and cook for a further two mins or until mince is cooked through. Stir in sauces and cook for further two mins. Place mixture in lettuce leaves and sprinkle with spring onions and bean sprouts - You can also add carrot and capsicum. Roll up lettuce leaves and eat with hands.


Living P resenting y o u r home to sell Presentation is so important when selling in today’s competitive market. Poor presentation can be perceived as poor home maintenance and leave buyers wondering what type of condition the house is actually in. Great presentation contributes to achieving the best sale price for your property. A fresh pair of eyes to give feedback of where presentation could be improved is a big help too. Many people think premium interior dressing is very expensive but sometimes the slightest improvement can have a huge impact on a property and its value. Not every home needs to be dressed like a “Show Home” though - you still need to live comfortably in the house while it’s selling, but you do want your property to sparkle and not leave too much to the imagination of buyers. Here’s a checklist of items that make a massive difference when it comes to presentation and other points that are easy to overlook. Presentation Tips Declutter Makes spaces look bigger with clean lines. Minimal is

Odours If professional floor cleaning doesn’t remove odours consider replacing carpet as bad smells can be very off-putting. Remember to keep toilet seats down!

Clean Everything! And don’t forget fans and aircon units, pressure clean the driveway and roof, wash the outside of the house if mouldy. Repairs Time to finally do all those

little jobs: holes in fly screens, sticking doors and knobs, loose tiles, dripping taps, blown light bulbs, water leaks, wood rot. Paint This can add thousands to your property. But keep it neutral and add colour with your furniture or decorations.

Outdoors L ife on a better ridge – seasonal states Claudette Betterridge There’s no doubt that on a day-to-day basis the weather affects what we do and how we feel but there are also long term seasonal affects that have a more subtle effect on us. In parts of the world that experience extremes in light levels, such as the midnight sun of summer and the 20 hours of darkness in winter in the far Northern and Southern Hemispheres, people’s moods and therefore their behaviour can be severely affected and there are documented effects of “mango madness” that distress residents living in the constant high temperatures nearer the equator. But these afflictions are not just limited to the extremes. People living in Britain and Canada have been shown to have a decrease in mood and an onset of depression with the long, dark, cold seasons.

Yandina comm u nit y garden Linda Mahoney

Aptly named SAD (seasonal affective disorder) this disorder has been extreme enough to be responsible in some cases for suicide. While here on the Sunshine Coast we are blessed to not have such extremes, we still feel the cycles of our seasonal weather patterns. On the Ridge it’s not just the creeping mercury that hints at change. The last couple of weeks have been a hive of activity - all of which looks to future growth and productivity. Neighbours are building dams, clearing paddocks and dangerous dead trees are being tackled before August’s wild winds sneak up. Everyone I’ve spoken to shares this experience and agree it feels good to open up the house and air out cupboards. Oppressive chores suddenly feel cleansing. There is such a feeling of preparation and anticipation in the air that it makes me glad to be living here and excited to imagine the bounty this groundwork will provide.

The “awardwinning” Yandina Community Gardens – recipients of the Sunshine Coast Council’s 2010 Glossies award for Edible Landscapes, are established permaculture gardens set up as an educational facility for the community, schools and other organisations to gain practical skills in growing their own food organically. The Gardens also features Blue House, an old Qld weatherboard house which has been retrofitted to demonstrate practical solutions in changing your home to be more sustainable. The Gardens opened in 2002, on disused tennis and basketball courts, with the help of a Federal Govt Grant. Since then, the gardens have increased in size to incorporate Blue House and it now covers an area of approx. 3300sqm. Over the last four years, the

Gardens have operated with the benefit of a Community Partnership Grant from the Sunshine Coast Council and this has enabled us to provide – amongst other things – free fortnightly workshops to all members of the Coast covering a variety of topics from growing herbs to pest management to growing organic seasonal tropical and sub-tropical vegetables. These workshops have provided the necessary tools for members of the community to “have a go” themselves – whether it is providing food for themselves and their families or learning to live more sustainably. yandinacommunitygardens.com.au

Discover how your garden can become your ultimate wellness tool.

Costa Georgiadis, from ABC’s Gardening Australia program, is making a special appearance during the Yandina Community Gardens Open Day on the 24th August, 2014. You could win reserved seating at his presentation just by shopping at The Nutrition Matters Shop.

Outdoors N ews from the W ildlife C entre Windows and Glass Pool Fencing Ever since the First Fleet, troubles have been brewing for our wildlife. Not only have we happily removed much of their habitat, we have brought with us pesticides, herbicides, barbed wire, cats, dogs and of course cars. But yet another insidious threat also lurks for our wildlife – birds in particular - and that is our home windows and glass pool fencing. Lots of birds are brought into the Eumundi Wildlife centre after hitting either windows or the new and glamorous pool fences that adorn many homes and keep our children safe. Often the bird will die within minutes from shock, a broken neck or internal injuries. So ‌ what do we do if a bird hits either of the above but is still alive? Gill Brownhill advises the following. Collect the bird as soon as possible as kookaburras and pets can quickly seize the bird, also hot sun can kill them. Place the injured bird in an appropriate sized container (with air holes) or box and place in a dark, quiet and safe place e.g. laundry. Please NO pets or small children in the vicinity! Check up every half hour till the bird seems to have recovered. Gill advises a two hour recovery time if the bird appears stunned. The next stage is a test flight. Shut the door securely and open the box and see if the bird can fly

Helen Hepburn

correctly. If you are satisfied the bird appears to be recovered, just open the door to the great outdoors and allow the bird its freedom. If the bird can only hobble on the floor or obviously is flying in a lopsided way ,then please bring it into the Centre ASAP as it may well have a broken wing and either Gill or a vet will assess the bird to see if can be rehabilitated. The accompanying photo was taken in my garage. A tiny peaceful dove had hit my kitchen window and was found barely conscious. As you can see the bird is starting to recover and within a half an hour of taking the photo, was released onto my back lawn close to some trees where its mate was waiting for it. The next photo shows three pieces of equipment I think are necessary for the safe capture of injured wildlife. The large container came from a pet shop and is made from plastic with excellent slots in the lid for ventilation. The container is perfect for transporting smaller creatures safely to the Centre. The two nets are just cheap ones. I have used these to evict lizards, small snakes, frogs, spiders and even scorpions from the house.

Letters M ore important iss u es

S trongly oppose E D V

I am so glad the Sunshine Coast council decided to disregard the EDV group beat up and move on to real important issues. The 30 or so people who form the EDV group started to really believe their own spin and propaganda and forgot the most important part of their survey: 94% of the EDV population ignored or refused to do the survey and are quite happy with the Sunshine Coast council. Even the Noosa council, who paid for that survey have kept very quiet and must be really embarrassed to waste precious money on such an amateurish, useless survey.

I was born in the Sunny Brae Hospital, Eumundi QLD. As a resident of Doonan since 30 June 1973, I strongly oppose the suggestion of the Eumundi, Doonan, Verrierdale Resident’s Group (RDV) to move boundary lines to become part of the Noosa Shire Council. I do not support this proposal as I am very happy in the Sunshine Coast Council [and feel] well served by Councillors, Business and Recreation. There are lots of Noosa Shire residents who work and shop outside of their Shire. Not to mention when medical attention is required - where do they go to? Nambour General Hospital or Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Birtinya? I see no reason for such a move. Teresa Burton, Doonan.

I’ve lived in this area for more than 20 years and most locals don’t feel the need to change anything. Doonan – The pic of the golden triangle, has always been well looked after and looks fantastic. Eumundi – A gorgeous town with world famous markets which doesn’t need the elitist Noosa brand. Verrierdale – Here we are very happy with Cr Steve Robinson and the SCC for their constant support against the quarry and for spending over 3 million dollars on sealing Doonan Bridge East Rd which has made our lives better and safer. Keep in mind that if we were with Noosa council, even if they wanted to, there is no way they could afford to spend that sort of money with their much smaller budget. The EDV group should refocus their time and energy… and stop wasting their time and ours. Dom Massoni, Verrierdale.

to be separate from the rest of us we want to be separate from Noosa. I do not want any more dictating of what I can do on my property and I know under the Noosa council this will happen based on what has happened already in the Noosa Shire. I do not need to give statistics, you only have to look at the businesses closed up and people travelling outside the area for work, need I say more. Lisa, Doonan

I went to the EDV group meeting at Verrierdale Hall and came away not worried because after hearing all the results it was only 10% of people that they surveyed who wanted to join the Noosa Shire which is a very minimal portion of people who live in the EDV area.

Everybody is talking about the 10%, what about the 90% that we have not heard from. I think 10% is a bit of a storm in a tea cup, like always you hear from the minority not the majority. We need one question asked, “do we want to live in the Noosa Shire”? This is a NO from me just like Noosa wants

Links with the past One of EDCA’s members has unearthed a link with our town’s past. Who would have thought that you could have bought a set of cufflinks and a tie pin embossed Eumundi Qld. The images proudly show Eumundi’s rural heritage. Do any readers know the history of these? Also, a calendar with tortoiseshell border that has the day, date and month adjustable. Many Happy Days with Greetings from Eumundi it extols. These reminders of our past are intriguing and herald a time when Eumundi sported three sawmills, three service stations, a butter factory, supermarket, bank and even a dentist.
