Members Statements – AUSTRALIA DAY

Mr J BULL: It was terrific to attend the Hume City Council citizenship ceremony on Australia Day to welcome our newest citizens and recognise some outstanding contributors in our local community. I was thrilled to see the Sunbury Agricultural Society Sunbury Show awarded the Hume Community Event of the Year award. As many of you know, this wonderful local event at Clarke Oval, Sunbury, brings together the best of the local community and industry. In more great news, Stephanie Challis of Sunbury was awarded the Hume Young Citizen of the Year award and Val Price of Craigieburn was awarded the Hume Citizen of the Year award. You should both be very proud and hold your heads up high. I would also like to very quickly mention Drew Jessop, who received an OAM for his 22 years of service— (Time expired)
