Healthy Eating Supermarket Tours
Fraser Coast Community Health are presently conducting Healthy Eating Supermarket Tours. Many of us are unsure of what is "healthy" in the supermarket, confused by fancy food labeling etc. The tour is designed to educate people on healthy choices that may help you lose weight, increase your energy, reduce your stress levels and improve your overall health.
What Did You Say?
Good hearing is fundamental to our overall health, well-being and quality of life. It is vital that we all become more aware of how hearing loss negatively impacts our society.

NEVER Be The First To Get Old!!
Fair ticketing for people with a disability who require a companion.
The Companion Card is a program designed for people with a disability who have a lifelong need for attendant care support in order to take part in activities and visit venues in the community. The program promotes fair ticketing for people who need this kind of support and removes one of the barriers to their participation in activities and events – the expense of purchasing additional ticket for their companion.
"Fraser Coast Show Society"
the holders of a Companion Card will be given
"two for one" entry tickets allowing their "companion"
free entry to the 2010 show.
It is imperative that applicants complete paperwork, etc. and their free identity card will be issued to enable eligible companions entrance to this year's Show.
The Maryborough and District Committee on the Ageing Inc. applauds this action and encourages other business to support the Companion Card program.
Can you match the Fraser Coast Show Society's offer??
