Community & Family

On Saturday 5th June, 1886, Kate Mary Smith submitted an ‘Undertakers’ Notice’ in The Brisbane Courier informing “The inhabitants of Brisbane and surrounding districts that the long-established business so successfully carried on by the late Jno.Smith, as undertaker, will in future be carried on by his widow”. This was K.M. Smiths’ first sharing of ‘News & Events’ with the community and the families we respectfully continue to share our news and event items with today.

At a 'Paint the Bayside Orange' breakfast earlier this week, Zonta's District 22 members prepared for Zonta's international 16 days of activism from 25 November to 10 December, asking people across the world to join them in saying no to violence against women. Anyone travelling inbound on the Story Bridge will see their bright orange banner. As we make our way towards the holiday period Zonta's invitation to 'Envision a world where no woman lives in fear of violence' is a humbling reminder that for all our 'advances', we've yet to secure the most fundamental and basic human right: to not live in fear.

It is always our privilege to attend and offer answers to the questions people of all ages have around funerals and planning for them. Our raffle (won by Ivy!) raised $200, which we've donated to Make A Wish Australia. ... See MoreSee Less

BOWEN HILLS MOBILE BLOOD BANK
Like many other Queenslander's who make a difference in people's lives through blood donation, one of our staff members attended the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood mobile donor centre at Edmondstone Street, Bowen Hills today to give blood. It is a small thing that makes a huge difference in the lives of others in the many circumstances where blood is needed. We acknowledge the staff and donors alike for the great and unseen work they do.

Archie, our therapy dog, joined a range of other animals from goats, guinea pigs, chickens, dogs and even a horse at ACU (Australian Catholic University) Banyo campus today for their unique Blessing of the Animals ceremony.

It was a pleasure to be there and a great reminder of the gift that animals are in our lives. ... See MoreSee Less

Few of us know they can take up to 1000 years to break down. Partnering with 'Close the Loop' continues to make it easy to recycle with their second to none collection program. ... See MoreSee Less
