QUINLIVEN (sic) UNITS. (P.7, Southern Peninsula News, 21-10-2014.)
A man described as "integral to the history of Rosebud in his enduring efforts to support the veteran community" was honoured on Sunday.

The dedication of the Carry On units at Clacton Divide recognised "the efforts of one man, Jim Quinlivan,in raising more than $400 000 towards their construction."

"Without Jim's efforts,the units at Clacton Divide would never have come to fruition," Carry On executive officer (Victoria) Colin Wardrop said.

"We honour his role as recognition of what can be done when you have a vision."

The units were named 'Carry On (Victoria) Jim Quinlivan Units'.

The not-for-profit organisation has supported the veteran community for more than 82 years and has a strong affiliation and working relationship with both the R.S.L. and Legacy (Vic), Mr Wardrop said.

It provided support in housing,education (secondary and tertiary) and welfare assistance to veterans and their families in times of need.

I'd never heard of Jim Quinlivan before I saw the above article today. I'd read about the council taking ownership of the more inland portion of the Clacton-on-Sea estate because of unpaid rates and cooperating with Carry On to build the estate. Emphasis was placed on the council officer who oversaw the project and I don't recall even one mention of Jim Quinlivan.

CARRY ON ( Victoria ) - Rosebud Branch
Carry On has had supporters on the Mornington Peninsula from the earliest days of the Club.

Many ex-servicemen living on the Peninsula were in needy circumstances, and after the Branch office-bearers convinced the Carry On Board of this situation it provided the motivation which has resulted in this Branch becoming an extremely active group.

One of the consequences has been the construction of Homes for the Aged Units in Rosebud. These ten units were built in two stages between 1989 and 1994.

The Branch also recruited very well in the 1980s, attracting local identities Alan Gray, Alex Bennett, John Davidson, Col Adamson, Les Parkin, Jim Quinlivan and Don Warford to join the organisation.

Because of the quality and enthusiasm of these members the branch has been very active since its establishment.

Good relationships have been established with the local newspapers which give coverage to Carry On activities such as Golf Days, Bowls Carnivals and the giving of Christmas hampers to needy families.

Great support has also been obtained from service and sporting clubs, businesses, local communities and the Local Shire Council on the Southern Peninsula.

A further role of the branch is assisting with the management of the Homes for the Aged units at Rosebud, where they select tenants, monitor their needs, attend to maintenance and minor repairs, and report to the Board on any major problems that may arise.


On 23 October at 1100 we are dedicating... - Carryon-victoria

On 23 October at 1100 we are dedicating our Clacton Divide Rosebud Units in memory of Jim Quinlivan who passed away after a poor health on 5 April 2014. Jim was very well known in the Rosebud area for his fund raising endeavours to build units for Veterans in Rosebud. There is a local myth within the precincts of the Rosebud business district that the business owners would close up shop or hide when Jim cam a calling because he was chasing them for another donation. In fairness Jim Quinlivan raised over $440K towards the construction of the units. Lest we Forget his contribution to his Service mates. A true champion.

Anthony Edward McKenzie. Jim was a Gentleman and the dedication in his memory is a wonderful thought. Well done. Vice President, Peninsula Young Veterans Well Being Centre.

SOME PEOPLE DESERVE EVERY BIT OF LUCK THEY GET AND JIM WAS CERTAINLY ONE.

Jim Quinlivan can barely wipe the smile off his face. More than 50 years after discovering he was adopted, Mr Quinlivan, 81, has found two half-sisters and another big family...

JIM QUINLIVAN, MORNINGTON PENINSULA SHIRE'S CITIZEN OF THE YEAR?
The ink had hardly dried on my journal when Peninsula Wide arrived,announcing that nominations were being called for the above award. I intend to nominate Jim and I have asked Carry On, Rosebud R.S.L. and the three Seawinds councillors to join me in doing so. Hopefully, an invitation to ROSEBUD RIPPLE readers to also join in the nomination will be published soon.

I suspected that the councillors might not be able to nominate and this has been confirmed in a very prompt reply from Cr David Gibb (see below), as doing so would prevent them from voting on the choice of candidate.

I knew Jim Quinlivan very well. He would be a fine candidate for Shire Citizen of the Year. We have never had a posthumous nomination but I see no reason why such a nomination couldn?t be submitted. If his nomination were to be successful, his widow Grace could receive the honour on his behalf.
Crs can?t be part of a nomination because, although we use a subcommittee to make recommendations, the final decision rests with Council. As such, we would have a conflict of interest and would have to leave the chamber.
The State President of Carry On is Simon Bloomer..
Kind regards,
David

N.B. The gremlins are at it again. All apostophes were in Cr. Gibb's email but disappeared when I clicked "submit".

Please disregard my previous comment about nominating the late Jim Quinlivan as CITIZEN OF THE YEAR. The excitement of the last week or so has been more than enough for Jim's widow, Grace, and Jim's daughter has asked me to withdraw my nomination. The R.S.L., councillors and ROSEBUD RIPPLE have been informed of this but my message to Carry On did not go through.
