Deagon Ward E-News

August 2019

 

As we enter the second half of 2019, I would like to reflect on what has been a great year for our local community so far. I was proud to be a strong supporter of a number of great events in the past months, in particular the fantastic Einbunpin Festival, which was a huge success once again this year. Recently I have attended numerous school carnivals and award assemblies, sports club end of season celebrations and other local groups and organisations.

I am also looking forward to more exciting events including the inaugural Sandgate Youth Festival on September 7 and the Zillmere Festival on September 14.  

Keep an eye out on my Facebook page to keep up to date with local news and events.

If you are part of a local community group and want me to feature an upcoming event in my e-news please contact my office to arrange this. 


Cheers

Jared Cassidy

Out and About in the Community 

 
 
Einbunpin Festival

The 2019 Einbunpin Festival was one of the very best! I’d like to thank our dedicated volunteers, our generous sponsors, our fantastic stall-holders and of course the thousands of locals who came to enjoy the festivities on the day! Here’s looking forward to Einbunpin 2020!

 





Mobile Offices - Brighton and Deagon

I recently held mobile offices in both Brighton and Deagon and had the pleasure of chatting to members of the community. Mobile offices are a great opportunity for locals who are unavailable during our regular office hours to drop by and discuss what issues are important to them. Keep an eye out for more mobile offices throughout the Ward in the near future.

 



Shorncliffe State School Sailing Regatta

Shorncliffe State School held their annual Sailing Regatta down on Cabbage Tree Creek. I was proud to once again sponsor the event and present the trophy to the winning team. This is such a great tradition for the school which connects students to their community and I always enjoy taking part on the day.



Zillmere Eagles Presentation Night

The Zillmere Eagles AFC wrapped up another big year with junior presentations recently at the club.

Congratulations to the teams - and especially the young men and women who achieved milestone medals (50 and 100 games).

I was able to announce to the players and their families on the night that over the off-season their field will be upgraded to a state of the art playing surface - which will give them a great home ground advantage next year!

 

 

Boondall State School Bush Neighbours Program

I caught up with kids from Boondall State School while they were taking part in the Brisbane City Council "Bush Neighbours" Program at the Nudgee Beach Foreshore.

The students discovered a lot about the surrounding natural environment, the animals that inhabit it and how to keep it clean and healthy!


 

Official Opening for the New Multi-Use Games Area - O'Callaghan Park

I Recently hosted a free community BBQ to officially open the new Multi-Use Games Area at O'Callaghan Park, Zillmere! Plenty of locals came down to enjoy a sausage and check out these great new Council facilities. Ben was even lucky enough to go home with a brand new basketball after winning the shooting competition!
