COUNCIL RE-NAMES LOCAL PICNIC AREA IN HONOUR OF GOONDIWINDI ROTARY CLUB
Mayor of the Goondiwindi Region the Honourable Cr Lawrence Springborg AM and Cr Lachlan Brennan officially opened the newly-named ‘Rotary Park Picnic Area’ last night, in honour of the Goondiwindi Rotary Club.Goondiwindi Regional Council agreed to re-name the existing picnic area at the Goondiwindi Natural Heritage and Water Park in recognition of the contribution that Rotary has made to the town over the years.The newly-named Rotary Park Picnic Area encompasses the playground, picnic tables and barbeques on the south-western bank of the Water Park. The park in its entirety will still be known as the Goondiwindi Natural Heritage and Water Park.
The Mayor and Cr Brennan also unveiled a new sign at the picnic area, bearing the new name, which the Rotary Club had recently installed. Cr Brennan holds Council’s portfolio for lifestyle, including parks and gardens, and said Council’s decision to name the picnic area in Rotary’s honour would recognise the great effort and community-mindedness of the local club.“We had many local organisations that contributed to the development of the park area back when the Water Park was first opened, and Rotary was one of the main contributors that helped to get this picnic area ready for the community,” Cr Brennan said.“They do so much for the town and make a difference in all different kinds of ways, from community fundraising to crowd favourites like Gourmet in Gundy.“ I hope residents will agree that this is a very fitting gesture, and goes at least some way to recognising the many contributions of our local Rotarians.”
Kym Skinner, President of the Goondiwindi Rotary Club, said the group might look to apply for funding for more improvements to the area, such as fencing, in the coming years.“As Rotarians, we are proud to continue to be people of action and to serve our local community and are grateful for the recognition this park will provide,” she said.The Rotary Club of Goondiwindi celebrated the 100th anniversary of Rotary in Australia in April 2021.
