I would like to wish you all a very happy and joyful Christmas this year.
In this season of giving, it is important to reflect on our good fortune as Australians that we are able to enjoy the holidays with our loved ones in relative peace and prosperity.
We must also keep in our thoughts those less fortunate among us, and help out where we can to ensure those who are struggling can also experience the joy of Christmas.
I have been privileged to meet and help so many kind and generous people this year. Ours is a truly wonderful community, and I urge you to come out and join others in the Christmas festivities at any number of upcoming local events. You can find upcoming Christmas events on my online Community Noticeboard at www.rossvasta.com.au.
I thank the residents, businesses and organisations of Bonner for all your support throughout 2014. I hope the New Year brings you untold happiness, good health and success.
I look forward to working with you all in 2015 and beyond.
