Insert Logo Here - The Winds of Change

This Weekend – Jan 18 to Jan 21

It may have been a quiet-ish week for this blog, but this weekend is HUGE across Cardinia. Who’s going to the Lang Lang show? Or Emerald Market?

We’ve had a slight change – we’ve dropped the word “Shire” from the name (but not the domain name), and we’re looking for a new logo. This will hopefully reduce the incidences of being mistaken for the Council. And apologies to anyone who believed this site was the Council.

Also, I’d love to hear – and see – your thoughts on the Australian Flag.

…and have you seen the Lego ‘Fro?

Bring on the weekend!

Stan Henwood Award
From the Council website:

Nominations are now open for the annual Stan Henwood Award, which recognises outstanding individuals in Cardinia Shire who have made significant contributions to our community.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Cr Graeme Moore encouraged community members to submit a nomination for someone who they think has made a positive difference in their community.

“This award honours the late Stan Henwood and his lifetime contribution to Tynong and the municipality. It’s a special way for Council and community to remember Stan Henwood and acknowledge similarly motivated individuals in our community today.

“Now is the time for us to think about and recognise those members of our community who are continuing this selfless work with their own commitment and contributions to making Cardinia Shire a wonderful place to live, work, learn and play,” Cr Moore said.

Stan was held in high esteem by the Tynong community for his lifelong dedication to strengthening his local community and Cardinia Shire more broadly. His positive influence and contributions over the years not only improved the lives of those around him, but also saw him receive a medal from the Australian Prime Minister for Service to Sport and an Order of Australia for Service to the Community.

Nominations for the 2019 award close at 5pm on Sunday 24 March 2018.

Nominations must be submitted online via the SmartyGrants portal, which will require the nominator to register an account before they can prepare and submit a nomination form.
