I read with sadness and joy your words of celebration (Geoff Helisma – CVI 10/4/19) for the life of David “Baddy” Treloar.
Unluckily, I was not one of David’s many friends, however your words bought to life a blessed man who will be long celebrated and greatly missed. Over the years your writing has become more and more powerful and with David’s eulogy, you have once again given light and meaning for us all to understand what is happening in our community.
I like many in the Clarence Valley look forward to more of your passion, whether it be words or songs, it is a gift.
… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it.
For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
