Organisers need help

ORGANISERS of the popular Lights on the Hill Trucking Memorial have run into difficulties and need help.

The group's new committee successfully staged its 2012 convoy in near record time following the resignation of its founder Kathy White.

But in preparing for its next event, it has found that critical records are missing.

The annual Lights on the Hill's memorial service at Lake Apex Park in Gatton celebrates and remembers those who have lost their lives serving the trucking community.

The service has traditionally been the time to unveil the name plaques for those who have been added to the memorial wall in the previous 12 months.

But it is the details and records of those new names that are missing.

Lights on the Hill Trucking Memorial Inc's committee is seeking the public's assistance to ensure the many people who have applied and paid to have names added to the wall in time for this year's memorial day do not miss out.

An extension of time has been negotiated with the name plaque supplier, but the committee needs to have this outstanding issue resolved by mid-July.

Early responses would be greatly appreciated so they can ensure those names can be honoured in time for the memorial day on Saturday, October 13.

If there are any names which can be added to this list, contact committee secretary Barbara Clarke on 5466 7192 or vice-president Glen Beutel on 0413 886 268.

The organisation can also be contacted by email or regular post at lightsonthehill@live.com.au or PO Box 233, Laidley, 4341.
