Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, vim wisi lorem cetero at, stet omittantur intellegebat ne ius. Eum ceteros nusquam in. No exerci perfecto prodesset nec, movet eruditi sapientem ne pri. Ea vel ludus aliquam, sea in stet justo. An solet vitae oporteat vim. At duo persecuti pertinacia scripserit, ius an posse postea voluptua.

Solum putent an usu, ne virtute eripuit est, brute appetere mei in. Per quodsi civibus ea, aeque omittantur ex mea. Salutandi constituto philosophia vel in. Mundi conceptam ex sit. An homero offendit pertinacia pro.

Treasurer

Debra Tibbotts
Treasurer

My husband Chris and I purchased a block of land in Mount Perry in 2018 and in 2019 relocated a 110 year old house from Tin Can Bay onto the block.  We are restoring this beautiful home and enjoying retirement on our lifestyle farm.  Our aim is to have a fully functional self-sufficient existence with our vegetable garden, orchard as well as breeding pigs, goats, cattle and soon sheep.

My background is in Office Management working in legal, real estate, hospitality and music industries then moving on to co-owning an Advertising Agency then a Medical Sales company before deciding to retire early.

Chris and I felt an immediate emotional tie to Mt Perry; its surrounds and its people and we look forward to being involved in making Mount Perry a town people want to come visit, stay and explore.  As a community I strongly feel we can do this with the help of the Mount Perry Community Development Board.

It is with pleasure that I accepted the role of Treasurer in 2020 and I look forward to working with the Board to achieve great things for our Community.

Ken Schuster

Ken Schuster

COMMITTEE MEMBER

Hi my name is Ken.
I grew up on a property in South Australia and have been in and around growing grain and cotton for many years.
This also involved maintenance and repair of associated machinery which complemented my trade as a mechanic.
My last position was head mechanic for the principal contractor on Cubby Station at Dirranbandi, SW Queensland.
This property was renowned for being able to grow 20,000 Ha. of cotton in one season, the largest cotton farm in the Southern Hemisphere.
My wife Susie and I travelled through Mt. Perry in 2008 while visiting friends in Gin Gin and we both commented what a great place it was.
We moved nearby in 2009 and started a mobile mechanic business…I guess the rest is history.
Mt. Perry Mechanics on Heusman St. was opened in July 2014.

Yvette McKay

Yvette McKay

COMMITTEE MEMBER

Hi my name is Yvette Stephensen-McKay, I came to Mt Perry in 1993. I met my life partner, Robert, and together we raised two sons. I work for Robert’s family business, which has been in Mt Perry forever! Over the years I have been a member of many local organisations – too many to name. I’m still very active and vocal about our small community and working at McKay’s has given me the information to help push Mt Perry forward. It is a pleasure to be on the Mt Perry Community Development Board. 

People, only the sky is our limit.

Beryl Dingle-McLennan

Beryl Dingle-McLennan

SECRETARY

Hi, I’m Beryl.

I have grown up in Mount Perry and come from one of the older established families in the area.

I’ve lived in a number of cities and towns in Queensland and in Perth throughout my adult life. I initially trained as a nurse in Bundaberg and have had a variety of occupations culminating with a FIFO life in the Gold Fields in Western Australia. I have always maintained my community connections by volunteering and was a member of the steering committee to establish the Kolan Community Bendigo Bank. I was an inaugural director for the bank and continue to support their efforts. I’ve recently returned home to live, and work with my parents and brother on our cattle property.
