Action packed Korumburra

HUNDREDS of people from the western end of the South Gippsland Shire gathered in Korumburra on Australia Day to celebrate our great country.

Families were treated to lots of fun including a petting zoo, slip and slide, tug of war, gum boot throwing, CFA display and much more.

The Lions and Rotary clubs provided the masses with food while a display of classic cars impressed the bigger kids.

Korumburra’s Helen Pearce was named Citizen of the Year for the region, while Community Event of the Year went to the Country Style Australia Day at Poowong.

Community Youth Awards went to Tom Horton (Korumburra), Stewart McKenzie (Korumburra), Ashley Tilling (Poowong), Madeline Lancey (Nyora) and Tamara Loughridge (Poowong).

Federal Member for McMillan Russell Broadbent joined in the celebrations, congratulating all award winners alongside South Gippsland Shire Council’s Cr Bob Newton, Cr Nigel Hutchinson-Brooks and Cr Lorraine Brunt.
