Last month Katie Yeo, medical receptionist/practice manager for Gunning Community Care (GCC), went to Sydney to receive the ‘Gary Smith Mentoring Award’ from the Australian Association of Practice Management (AAPM). 

Katie was received with great warmth and now has a terrific network of contacts to further her own professional development to the benefit of GCC and its clients.

Katie, locally born and bred, is looking forward to taking advantage of her award that includes six teleconference sessions and on-going support from Gary Smith.

Smith, with 29 years’ experience, is known as the guru of practice management including internationally. 

In her submission for the award Katie wrote that “...winning the Gary Smith Mentoring Award would be like winning the practice management lotto!” 

Well done Katie – every congratulation on winning this lotto!

INTO THE BLOGOSPHERE!

Gunning & District Historical Society now has a web presence and a recent post in its foray into the blogosphere is an item from the Goulburn Herald and Chronicle of 2 November 1875.

This noted that an earlier edition of the Town and Country publication had described buildings in Gunning as being of the “pig-sty style of architecture”. The article went on to describe the improvements that had since occurred and the names of those who had set up business or took up residence.

GOLD MEDAL LAMB

Gunning District Landcare (GDL) committee members Vince and Janet Heffernan, ‘Moorlands’ via Dalton, have won the Delicious Magazine Gold Medal at a blind tasting competition last week. 

Vince said “It is great to win this gold medal. While it is the lambs that win the medals not the farmers, this shows the strength of the district to produce top quality lamb.” Vince paid tribute to his wife Janet for her part: “She does most of the work – I just talk!” 

The ‘Moorlands’ team has a regular presence in Sydney and Canberra or just check out their website. What a coup for Vince and Janet – warmest congratulations on your well deserved success!
