Mr NORTHE — I wish to acknowledge Jessi McEwan of Traralgon, who won the Gippsland regional achiever award at the regional achievement and community awards gala dinner on Friday evening. Jessi has had a number of achievements, including being selected as Australia’s first young chef ambassador at the 2014 World Association of Chefs Societies congress in Norway.
Well done also to Mick Schiller from Boolarra, who was a finalist in this same category, for his work with the historical society, the Friends of the Upper Morwell River and the Boolarra South Landcare Group. He is also secretary of the Boolarra Men’s Shed.
Both Jessi and Mick are wonderful contributors to our community and deserve every success that comes their way.
