A chance to learn from those who know best
IT IS always a pleasure to greet visitors to the region and especially so with people who have contributed to programs that have been of major benefit to the country and even worldwide.
Such is the case with the Australia Day Ambassador, Associate Professor Dimity Dornan, and her husband Peter, who visited Mt Perry on that special day.
They stayed with Clive and Deb Dingle at the Marchioness farm stay, and what a building that is! Designed and built by Clive, it is a credit to his imagination and skill. Clive and Deb, I wish you well in the future.
To have such highly-profiled people as Associate Professor Dornan be prepared to accept these Ambassadorial roles and visit country areas on these occasions is a great opportunity for us to learn of the advances in so many areas of medical science.
It seems that bionic parts are now no longer a dream but a reality.
Associate Professor Dornan and her husband Peter are great promoters of their science and it was a pleasure to host them in our region.
I hope everybody had an enjoyable Australia Day and I congratulate those who were presented with awards and also those who were nominated.
I believe it is important to identify people in our communities who have achieved and those who work as volunteers for our communities.
To be recognised, they have to be identified and need your nomination.
Congratulations to the new citizens who were welcomed at the Mt Perry ceremony on Australia Day.
