As a service to the community, the Progress Association has purchased 25 kg of the attractant recommended by the Department of Agriculture and will distribute it free to members or for a nominal charge of $2 to non members.
Instructions on how to use this will also be provided, together with other recommended measures to control this pest.
Bring a container that will hold 200 ml to the hall between 9:30 and 11:30 on the first and third Saturdays of the month, commencing on 20 September.
The Shire of Waroona has asked for the attached announcement to be published. The types of mosquitoes found are capable of carrying both Ross River and Barham Forrest viruses so we all need to avoid being bitten.
Please tell your friends and neighbours!!

Nominations for the AGM on Sunday November 2 at 2pm are:
Graeme Wyatt has been nominated as Vice President
Jenny Rose has been nominated as President
Judy Wyatt has been nominated as Treasurer.
We have been told that there have been a number of break ins and lots of hooning in the area. Southern Estuary Road is particularly bad and hooning is also common on Old Bunbury Road and Old Coast Road.
To report these incidents, you should call police on 131444. Even if you don’t have registration numbers or any other information it is still worth making the report as a large number of reports just might get some action. I have requested an increase in police patrols in the Waroona (Lake Clifton) area and was assured that they do patrol our area but I don’t see them very often. If more people asked for this it might put pressure on them. If you live in Herron and would like to have a greater police presence, you should contact Mandurah police.
Our intrepid photographer has been travelling. And it appears that her web assistant failed to put up the previous bulletin so here are numbers 32 and 33.
