Mitchell House Coordinator, Jan Bourne, and Member for Bass, Brian Paynter, hoisted a crisp Australian flag onto the new flag pole at Mitchell House this week.
Brian presented the Australian flag to Jan Bourne and enjoyed the opportunity to be the first one to raise the flag with Jan on the day.
Quotes attributable to Brian Paynter MP, Member for Bass:
It was great to see the flag flying high in the sky in front of Mitchell House. It will be a terrific inclusion when Jan has a Neighbourhood House flag to fly also.
A flag pole at the front of the community house is a terrific inclusion and will provide opportunities to fly different flags, including the Indigenous flag, which was raised and flown during NAIDOC week.
