State Parliament COMMUNITY RECOGNITION AWARD
Ms MELANIE GIBBONS (Holsworthy)—I would like to congratulate Karress Rhodes for ten years producing the Your Liverpool Lifestyle Magazine. Karress is a servant-hearted member of the community. Ten years ago she put her hand up to produce the Your Liverpool Lifestyle Magazine, with the intention of encouraging people to be proud of where they lived, and to foster a community spirit. She has certainly achieved her goal! Her magazine has informed locals about the goings on in the area, and has helped bring people together. For ten years the Your Liverpool magazine has been provided to various clubs and not for profit organisations, and is available in my office too, so that the information can be distributed within the community. That equates to a donation back into the community if those pages had all been paid for, of approximately $600 000 over the ten years. I would like to thank Karress Rhodes for her ongoing service to the Liverpool Community.
