Mr NORTHE — I want to acknowledge one of our community’s unsung heroes, John Paulet. John has volunteered his time and effort towards the sport of basketball and recently retired from official duties with the Traralgon Amateur Basketball Association. John served as treasurer for 40 consecutive years and quite rightly is a life member of the association. John has been a committee member, a high-performing player, a coach at domestic and squad level, a referee and has had a passion for mentoring younger players and referees. He has been a key player in necessary fundraising activities whilst also overseeing major upgrades to the Traralgon basketball stadium. I congratulate John on his amazing service to basketball and to our community.
