Chinese New Year

February 09, 2017

Member statement

On Sunday I had the pleasure of speaking at the Chinese New Year celebrations for the Goulburn Valley (GV) Chinese community.

Many who attended were overseas fruit pickers who had heard about the festivities and were searching for a way to celebrate the Lunar New Year away from their home country. I commend the GV Chinese community for what was a delightful afternoon which included a memorable performance by the Bendigo lion dancers.
