HERALD NEWS PAPER DOES A FEATURE
ON AGED CARE UNITS IN THE BURRUM DISTRICT
In 1976 a suggestion at a local meeting in Howard to create
housing for seniors resulted in a six year campaign from
almost every sector of the local community to raise funds,
lobby government departments, and do whatever had to be
done to achieve the goal…
August 28 marks twenty eight years since the first Burrum
Aged Units were opened, a remarkable achievement for the
small hard working district.
Now in 2009 there are 32 Burrum Aged Units throughout
Howard and Torbanlea, providing safe and secure housing
for seniors. These units are an integral part of the community,
and plan to develop further in the future.
Burrum Aged Units are creating a special feature in conjunction
with the Maryborough Herald, showcasing a little of its
history, and the people who are part of it.
Burrm Aged Units have nominated you as a special community
and/or business partners now, and for the future.
We invite you to participate in this special anniversary feature,
and have negotiated special discount advertising rates
to encourage your participation. Help make this a feature to
remember, and to remind the broader region of the achievements
of the Burrum.
Promote your products and services, place your special message
for Burrum Aged Units, promote your seniors specials,
to 11,700 readers with this great feature.
Please phone Edith Rutherford on 0409 609 971
as she visits the Burrum district, or fax to (07)4122 4734,
* In the event that some of you are confused as to where the units are that have been depicted in the photo above, be it known that approval to build similar lakeside aged seniors accommodation units may be sought from council @ Annie St Howard in the near future by Wide Bay District Developments Pty Ltd. Note the headline of MORE units in Burrum.
