Time for I do

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

The War­ragul Gazette comes out to­day on the eve of the same sex mar­riage postal sur­vey and it seems a fit­ting time as a reader to thank those who not only over the pe­riod of the sur­vey, but over years, have writ­ten in and shared their views on the topic in the let­ters page.

Some of the let­ters have been hard to read, while oth­ers have had me laugh­ing but ul­ti­mately, I am glad we live in a com­mu­nity where our lo­cal pa­per al­lows the com­mu­nity to have con­ver­sa­tions, ex­press dif­fer­ent view­points and read those of oth­ers in our com­mu­nity.

To­mor­row it won’t be our lo­cal pa­per, but the na­tional me­dia we will turn our at­ten­tion to as we see what the feel­ings of Aus­tralia is on this topic but as well as thank­ing the let­ter writ­ers of all sides, I es­pe­cially thank those who voted Yes. I thank you for your vote for fair­ness and in­clu­sion in com­mu­nity.

Hope­fully the re­sults to­mor­row will lead to all Aus­tralians be­ing able to say “I do".

David ‘Wom­bat’ Lyons, Wil­low Grove

Big bou­quet to Jack who picks rub­bish and sweeps around Drouin Sta­tion on week­end morn­ings.

Bou­quets to the life­guards at the War­ragul Swim­ming Pool. They are al­ways smil­ing, friendly and help­ful.
