SANDRA Jordan and husband Jeff, members of the Mapleton Bowls Club, attended the Volunteer of the Year awards at the Palmer Resort at Coolum. Sandra was one of four finalists in the awards sponsored by the Bendigo Bank. While she did not win, her huge effort of 10 years in the bowls club was recognised.

Sandra has been provider of the club for the past 10 years, and will be made a life member in the AGM on February 24. The club owes both Sandra and Jeff a huge debt of gratitude.

Taking a Stand

MAPLETON School will participate in the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence to be held on Friday, March 15. On this day the school will be undertaking activities to promote positive respectful behaviour. As the school states, bullying and harassment are totally unacceptable in any school or workplace. A great message for life for the kids.
