B Company - Logan City Community Cadets Unit
« on: May 19, 2011, 11:20:08 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Logan City Council is backing many projects for things for kids to do in our area, in particular constructive ones.  One of them is the sponsoring of Bravo Company Logan City Community Cadets Unit, for the Flagstone Jimboomba region.

Alpha Company is functioning very successfully in Browns Plains, and Council has received many enquiries and expressions of interest from our local community, to establish a Unit closer to home.

Home being South Maclean, Jimboomba, Flagstone, Cedar Grove, Cedar Vale and all surrounding areas.

As with all community activities, the development is entirely dependent upon community interest, response, and...commitment.

If you are interested, or know someone that could be interested, please direct them to the Units website:  http://logancadets.com.au  for more information.

Or send an email to:  lcccubravocompany@gmail.com

Kindest regards,

Richard Vincenti
OC B Company

Appalling Outcome

In spite of the numerous complaints by locals about the lack of council support and activities for young people the community response was appalling!  Actually shameful! Only five takers for this Council initiative and no parents willing to get involved.  Let somebody else do the hard yakka!

Logan Council, the Mayor, various Councillors, Browns Plains Cadets and the Flagstone College all committed time, effort and resources to provide this commendable activity for young people.  But, same happened as with so many other proposals to get things going in the area - NOTHING! 

It is all good and proper to whinge, complain, blame Council and politicians, and anyone else they can target, write ridiculous letters to the Editor of the Jimboomba Times - but actions - or lack of - speak louder than words, the bottom line is: parental apathy!

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment.  Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.

That's pretty damn pathetic the lack of support towards what could've been a very useful activity for young people in the area.... I'm betting the same parents will the ones who do the loudest whining about there being nothing for their kids in the area.

You are not wrong there.  I attended some local meetings where some of "them" were clamouring about the lack of activities for young people, but what they really meant was free babysitters so the could carry on with their potato couch activities, and worse.  As soon as there was some mention of "getting involved" or "doing some work" they disappeared in a flash.
