Dear Ms Dawson

Richardson road dam – St Marys

I refer to our previous emails in regard to the existing status of Crown Land containing the Richardson Road dam.

I also refer to previous emails and telephone conversations between Acting Break O’Day Council Mayor Hannah Rubenach and myself regarding this matter.

I have undertaken some research into the Crown land and the dam and can provide the following information:

The Crown land has a status of unallocated and was accessed in 2006 under the Crown Land Assessment and Classification Project (CLAC). The dam was noted within the report and comments were sought from the Break O’Day Council.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

The Cornwall Community Development Group put in a request to the committee of the St Marys Memorial Services Association asking if we would collaborate with them to commemorate A.N.Z.A.C Day Services.  It was put forward for discussion and all members were in agreement.  It was decided to alternate the dawn and 11am service each year.  Therefore, on the 25th April St Marys will hold the Dawn Service starting at 6am followed by a Gunfire Breakfast. Cornwall will hold the 11am Service.

Next year St Marys will perform the 11am and Cornwall the 6am.  We hope that this partnership will be met favourably by the community so we can all come together to remember our fallen.

Lest we forget.

Wendy Brennan, for and on behalf of the St Marys Memorial Services Association
