    Our thanks to Tanya from Mitchell Libraries and the Communications  Team at the Shire for their help preparing the main Flyer for Stories and  Sounds. It is likely to show up on the CBF and CBAA facebook pages  sometime soon and is already on ours. We should have three sample  stories available soon and remind Presenters to encourage listeners to  start work on their stories.

    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.

  • The Mayor And Youth Mayor On Monday Monthly

    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.

  • National Tree Day

    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.

  • Mandy McCracken On Rambles

    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.

  • Music And Theatre Workshops At Wallan

    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.
