My sincerest regrets about the dissolution of the Western region and the 
Shires it included. Since we of the former Shire of Middleford have 
experienced this not so long ago, I personally know the sorrow this brings 
to members' hearts. I have always enjoyed Gothic hosted by that area's 
groups, it was a RED calendar event for many of us each year. You are in my 
thoughts and prayers.
