This evening Pete and I are SO excited to attend the celebration of marriage between Alwyn Geddes and his brand new wife Louise. I, and many of you met Alwyn and his dear Mum & Dad of Donald Street, North Bundaberg during the Jan 2013 floods when they called for our help. What an honour it was to receive their invitation to join in celebrating their most important day, their wedding day! Never, EVER underestimate the impact that you all had on people’s lives with your absolute and unwavering kindness! CONGRATULATIONS Mr & Mrs Geddes ... From all of us at Adopt A Wash!!!

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!!! No matter what your plans are today, enjoy celebrating all of things that make Australia great.

On that note, here's an extract from one of my all time favourite Aussie poems by Dorothea MacKeller ...

I love a sunburnt country, ...
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!

A Friday Thought Provoker from one of our Adopt A Washers, Megan Taylor.

A young couple moves into a new neighbourhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbour hanging the wash outside. "That laundry is not very clean ... she doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap." Her husband looks on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbour hangs her wash to dry, the young woman makes the same comments.... A month later, the woman is surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and says to her husband: "Look, she's finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?" The husband replies, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows." And so it is with life ... What we see when watching others depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The highest priority is for PLASTERERS to finish the inside of homes. If you can help phone Heather on 0402 920 737.

PLEASE SHARE (with ALL businesses)

Regardless of whether they were directly inundated by the flooding, all businesses in the Bundaberg and North Burnett regions are urged to complete this survey in order to accurately calculate the current state of play for all businesses in the region.

URGENT ATTENTION VOLUNTEERS – PLEASE READ THIS POST !!

BUNDABERG HOCKEY ASSOCIATION have been in touch as they are still missing quite a few Representative Unif...orms (4 full teams!) believed to have been collected by Adopt A Wash Volunteers.

Also, if volunteers still have laundered items that need to be returned but have been unable to contact the owners (due to them not currently living at the pickup address or because you have misplaced contact details)? Please let us know and we will go through old records to assist in tracking down the owners for you.

Thanks, Cynthia
