Campbelltown City Council Jubilee Awards

Community Recognition Statement

Mr ANOULACK CHANTHIVONG (Macquarie Fields) (13:33): I recently attended Campbelltown City Council's wonderful Jubilee Awards. The awards recognise individuals and organisations in the community for their long-term contributions. Today I specifically recognise Bea Risbey and Lynton and Betty Painter, all of whom received their awards on the day. Bea Risbey is a proud resident of Long Point who has been teaching local children to play the piano in her studio for many decades. Those who know or have been taught by Bea know her as a generous and wonderful teacher. Bea continues to teach and inspire new generations of musicians to this day. She is a local icon.

Lynton and Betty Painter also received Jubilee Awards. Incidentally, this year it is also their sixtieth wedding anniversary. They are honest and decent people who worked hard to build their small business and have contributed to our community in so many ways. I am delighted to have people like Bea, Lynton and Betty in my local community. I congratulate them and the other recipients on their awards.
