An exciting game between Kilmore and Reservoir made for a very entertaining broadcast of the last roster game for this season. David did a good job of trying to contain the enthusiasm of Wally and Riley as Kilmore moved to a big win. The gusty conditions and pressure of the game inspired some interesting description of several goals including a 'Maradona goal' and a 'Shane Warne goal'. Depending on the calculations of results from Saturday's RDFNL games, we may broadcast a finals game if Wallan is playing.

It was a first for Monday Monthly last week with both the Mayor and Youth Mayor as guests, and the CEO of course. It was a good opportunity to hear about the behind‐the‐scenes activities of Youth Council, including the training, guest speakers and the two‐way exchange of information and feedback with the senior Council. We pitched a proposal to the Youth Council to work with them on a project to be possibly called ‐ "Serious about litter". In the second half hour it was great to talk Libraries with Paula and Tanya and to find out about even more things the Libraries were doing and planning to do.

Tree Day in Kilmore this year was focused on the Kilmore Creek banks with three sites between Union St and Mill St. Special weed matting had been spread out and grass and plants were planted into slots in the mat. It was great to have a group of students from TKIS and a few other volunteers. We have roving reports recorded with Viviana from the Shire, Karen from TKIS and Erin who was there with her Mum and sister. Back at the Studio, John had prepared a special edition of his show, featuring close to 20 songs about trees.

This week's guest on Rambles was Mandy McCracken. In addition to her own amazing story of coping with the loss of her lower arms and legs, she was able to tell of some of the advances in prosthetics she has been able to experience and, more recently, her work helping Prosthetic and Orthotic students at Latrobe University with their studies and practical sessions. Mandy highlighted the importance of her husband and family during her recovery and she is now working on a project to help other people facing the same circumstances.

Wallan Neighbourhood House was a busy centre for music, singing and drama sessions last week as part of a school holiday project supported by MCRAG and the Community Bank. Mark called in on Wednesday and recorded an interview with Dominie the Coordinator, as well as catching some of a junior guitar session at work. Dominie was very pleased that all sessions had been fully booked and was grateful to the instructors for each of the sessions.
Ellie called in again on Friday for a final catch up with Dominie during the performances and recorded a sample from the African Drumming group.
