Mr ANDREWS (Menzies) (13:47): I rise to acknowledge the 57 recipients of the annual Menzies community Australia Day awards, now in its 23rd year. I was joined by some 600 local residents on Australia Day to acknowledge these volunteers and great contributors to our community. I also had pleasure in presenting the Manningham promoting character award to the Veneto Club in Bulleen and to present one of the flags that fly in this chamber, which was provided by the Speaker, this year to St Mark's Anglican Church in Templestowe.

Amongst the 57 volunteers who were acknowledged, nominations came from the Doncaster All Abilities Basketball competition, Doncare, the North Eastern Jewish Centre, the Rotary Club of Templestowe, Information Warrandyte, the women's friendship group, Manningham City Council, the Peace Society, the Doncaster Rovers soccer club, the Lions Club of Donvale, Doncaster Secondary College, the Warrandyte Neighbourhood House, Greythorn Bowling Club, the Chinese Senior Citizens Club of Manningham, St Mark's Anglican Church, the Australian Air League, the Pied Pipers, the UMMA mosque, the post-polio support group, the BLIA temple, Doncaster Police, the Scouts, St Vincent de Paul and U3A Manningham.

In 23 years, we have honoured more than 1,000 local volunteers: great people who build the local community.
