Mr MORTON (Tangney) (16:45): In Tangney you know when the jacaranda festival is coming because those jacarandas start to bloom. The jacaranda festival in Applecross village attracted record numbers last weekend for this great community event: 160 stalls with amazing food, live performances, Christmas presents for sale and activities for everyone. The best thing is that the Applecross Rotary Jacaranda Festival raises money for great causes like True Blue Dreaming, which supports and strengthens young lives in rural and remote Australian communities, and Australian Rotary Health, one of the largest independent funders of mental health research within Australia. Well done to project director Kenn Williams and his fellow Applecross Rotarians. They were backed by volunteers from the Waylen Bay Sea Scouts, the SES and Rotaract. They transformed Ardross Street into a bustling fair early on Saturday morning and then packed up all the tents, stages, chairs, signs and fencing again late in the afternoon. I was so pleased to recognise the hard work and contribution of our volunteer members of service clubs like Rotary, Lions and many others in my electorate at a recent afternoon tea hosted at my electorate office. Thank you to all members of service clubs within the Tangney electorate for what you do to make our community vibrant, successful and compassionate.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms Claydon ): In accordance with standing order 43 the time for members' statements has concluded.
