Mr SOUTHWICK — On 21 January it was my great pleasure to attend the City of Glen Eira awards breakfast, where the city’s Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Community Group of the Year were honoured.
Honoured at the Glen Eira awards was Citizen of the Year Abram Goldberg, who has been an inspiration to our community through his work at the Jewish Holocaust Centre. Lawrence Hinrichs, a former school captain at Glen Eira College, was the worthy winner of the Young Citizen of the Year award for his commitment to helping others and contributing to his local community. Also honoured was GriefLine, a wonderful community organisation that has provided support and encouragement to people facing loss. I am very proud to represent my area of Caulfield and to have so many fantastic individuals and organisations that contribute so wonderfully to our community.
