Chamber appoints New Secretary 

Home Hill Chamber of Commerce treasurer John Clarke left assists new secretary Robert Antoniazzi

A NEW secretary has been elected to the management committee of the Home Hill Chamber of Commerce, following the recent resignation of former secretary, Terry Cross. 

Mr Robert Antoniazzi was introduced to members at the Chamber’s February networking event and even though he has already started, he will officially take over the position after being elected at the next Management Committee meeting in March. 

Mr Cross was forced to vacate his position because of ill health and a forthcoming move to Townsville. 

He was thanked for the way he efficiently carried out his role over the last couple of years by the members at the February event. 

The Chamber is grateful for Mr Antoniazzi’s rise to the position after searching for some time for a replacement for Mr Cross. The Chamber is also planning to officially thank the Management and administration staff of Wilmar’s Inkerman Mill for their many years of sponsorship of the printing the Home Hill News for the benefit of the local community.

The last copies of the newsletter came off the Wilmar printers after the February edition was completed and new arrangements have been made for the printing to be carried out from the March issue. 

Readers are reminded that they can arrange for a copy of the monthly newsletter to be sent to their own email address for free each month or they can easily access the pages of the Home Hill News by logging on to the upgraded Home Hill Chamber of Commerce website. 

Hard copies of the newsletter are also available through Home Hill News & Coffee or Woods News in Ayr for a minimal charge of $2 per copy. Advertising is also available in the newsletter by contacting ddjacko@bigpond.com .

The guest speaker at the February networking event was Mr Michael Howie, who told of the part he plays, with his wife, Rose and their staff in the catering industry in the Burdekin. 

The members who have attended the networking events have been involved in interesting discussions with the Chambers’ guests and it would be pleasing to see more members (and their guests) take the opportunity to participate in the events when they take place on the third Wednesday of each month from 5.30pm at the Home Hill Community Sports Club.
