It was this time in 1918 that guns on the Western Front fell silent during WWI, hostilities ceased and the allied nations remembered those who had fallen during the war. In 1997, Governor-General Sir William Deane formally declared 11 November to be Rememberance Day and urged people to observe one minutes silence. This year, I was humbled to be invited to lay a wreath and participate in the Remembrace Day event in Alice Springs. I would like to pay my respects to the towns very own veteran and Rat of Tobruk, Mr Sydney Kinsman and to our defence force personnel; past, present and future. As mentioned in a previous edition of this newsletter, Mr Kinsman turned 100 years old in July. Congratulations and a very happy birthday! I was able to organise a letter from Queen Elizabeth II which also included a letter from the Prime Minister the Honourable Scott Morrison and the Administrator of the Northern Territory the Honourable Vicki OHalloran OA. I can report that Mr Kinsman was very pleased to receive his letters and I am glad that I could help him receive the acknowledgement that he deserves. McHappy Day November 13 was the annual Australia wide fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House Charities. This is such a fantastic initiative to help support famlies with sick children, so I was thrilled to be able to take part. Since the fi rst McHappy Day in Australia in 1991, the fundraiser has raised more than $42 million. Thanks so much to Chloe and Matt for allowing me and others in the community to help out on McHappy Day! I look forward to next year and hope it is another successful event.
