Mr WALLACE (Fisher) (16:24): Last Wednesday I hosted a morning tea at my electorate office to celebrate the important work of community groups in Fisher. The wet and windy weather didn't dampen spirits as we gathered to congratulate the recipients of federal government grants under the Stronger Communities Program. I thank David Smyth of the CCSA, Rick Vickers of Maleny Rotary Club, John Malloy of the Rotary Club of Alexandra Headland, Nick Forster-Jones of Diggers Rest, Helen Page of Peachester Community Hall, Rebecca Prasad of Outrigger Caloundra Canoe Club, Stuart Coward of STEPS Group, Scott Kidston of Caloundra City Junior Rugby Union Club, William Asher and Kevin Farrell of QF6 Mooloolaba, Desney and Tom Malone of Maleny Cultural & Historical Society, and Sarah Pendergast of Kawana Waters Swimming Club for the often life-changing work that they do in our community and for coming along to celebrate with me. I also congratulate Kawana Waters State College, Celebrate Glasshouse Country, Caloundra Mallet Sport Club, Caloundra Woodworking Club, UCA Mooloolaba Uniting Church, C&K Maleny Community Kindergarten and Maleny District Sport and Recreation Club on their grants. Community groups like these enrich our lives and save taxpayers millions of dollars. I am proud to have been able to support these local groups through the Stronger Communities Program and I thank them again for all their hard work.
