One is to be held at Rockhampton Leagues Club, Cambridge Street, on Tuesday evening, 6th October, commencing

The second is at Roma’s TAFE College Jubilee Hall, on Friday 9th October, commencing at 7.30pm, with Senator

Barnaby Joyce speaking as well.

The third is to be held in Clermont at the Blair Athol Community Hall on Saturday, 10th October, commencing at


We could also express our opinion at these meetings of Premier Bligh’s proposed endangered regrowth

welcome to attend.
