For all the dads out there, we would like to wish you a very happy fathers day, and hope you enjoy the day with family and friends.

This month we lost a Bribie Icon Glen Hickman from a year and a half battle with Cancer. His memorial service was just a beautiful tribute to Glen and his life, community work and supporting our community and professional achievements, the biggest achievement was his family. The LOCAL News, Island and Surrounds sends their deepest sympathy to Kerrianne and their children.
