Last night on the 28th of April Fremantle Reform, hit 888 subscribers with over 8000 hits.
Why is it lucky, when I lived in China the number 8 has huge significant in the Chinese beliefs of fortune and Fung Shui.
Because Eight (Ba in Chinese) has the similar pronunciation with 发 (Fa, meaning wealth or fortune), the number 8 is very well received among Chinese people. A bit of trivia for 8 significance was obvious in relation to the Beijing Olympic Games which commenced at exactly eight o’clock eight minutes on the eighth day of the eighth month in 2008. When people choose telephone numbers, mobile numbers, house numbers, car identification numbers and important dates, 8 is usually the first choice.
So lucky days for Fremantle Reform with a run of 8’s on the 28th.
Thanks very much for the great turnout for last night’s meeting. It was great to see such a diverse attendance, we had representative’s from 4 precincts which was really great. I appreciate everyone’s efforts on such short notice
Thanks to everyone who came your interest, questions and participation was encouraging.
Thanks to Martin and Craig for the presentation it was very enlightening, plus the Q and A was really informative, everyone loved the detailed info, which has made this issue easier to understand for all who attended. For everyone who filled out the attendance sheet the presentation will be emailed out for your info for you to pass out to friend’s neighbours, family and anyone who’s interested.
Shortly I will organize a system to post the whole presentation here on the site, so it’s easy to pass onto friends, then people can ask questions as well, keeping in mind that know we don’t have access to some of the very important information as this is being kept confidential from us the rate payers and residents.
We will be working to set up more of this community based meetings or workshops to help people understand the concerns surrounding this issue.
Also finally thanks to the press that came last night, it was great considering especially the short notice you were given.
