Mr BILLSON (1:52 PM) —On the weekend there was a great celebration in the community of Mornington. Not only was it the 21st birthday celebration of the Mornington Community Information and Support Centre, it was also the birth of Bluey the Bunyip. Bluey the Bunyip is part of a mural at the community information and support centre which was designed to make families feel at ease when they go to the centre to access services. The team at the support centre do a fantastic job. We were joined by the `Queen Mum' of Mornington, Helen Hendry, who had been running that facility for many years, to celebrate the 21st birthday. Carmel Spirakis and the team there continue to provide outstanding services to the Mornington community.

I would like to say a bit more about Bluey the Bunyip. Myke Mollard, a local artist and a very creative person, sought assistance from the centre and returned the favour by producing the mural. The mural is outstanding and I am sure that everybody's future, including Myke's, is very bright and I wish the Mornington Community Information and Support Centre many more birthdays. Good on you, Myke, and good on you Mornington Lions Club and all those people who help to make sure the community support and information centre continues to meet the needs of the local community.
