Testimonial Dinner to honour former Shire Councillors

Former Councillor’s Stephen Padfield, Gina DeLuis and Sydney Parsons were honoured at a Testimonial Dinner on Saturday night at the Narembeen Recreation Centre.

Stephen Padfield has devoted more than three decades of service to his community, Gina DeLuis twelve years and Sydney Parsons eight years. Between them, these extraordinary individuals have spent thousands and thousands of hours improving the services, facilities and opportunities to the Narembeen community.

Shire President, Councillor Rhonda Cole said “standing for council is a significant commitment in itself, for Stephen Padfield to have dedicated 31 years to public service signifies a remarkable contribution that deserves to be celebrated, along with his fellow colleagues, the service of Gina DeLuis and Sydney Parsons is to also be admired.

Distinguished guests included the Hon Melissa Price MP, the Hon Darren West MLC, Freeman Melvin Bristow and wife Iris and Freeman Halley Cowan and wife Mary.

It was wonderful to see former CEO’s attending the celebration including Jim Epiro, Ian Ball , Alan Middleton and Ryan Duff.

Guests enjoyed a meal catered for by the Narembeen Netball Club and the P&C arranged the waitressing—thanks to you all!
