Volunteers Speeches | June 21, 2017
Victorian Parliament - 21 June 2017 - Ms KEALY - I would like to acknowledge the passing of former Horsham mayor, community advocate and friend, Don Johns. Don had significant involvement with the Wimmera Health Care Group Foundation, and in particular the Wimmera cancer centre, the Wimmera Information Network, the Horsham Regional Art Gallery, Horsham Tidy Towns and the GWMWater advisory committee. He was a Horsham Uniting Church elder, a Horsham City Lions Club member and a Masonic lodge member. He was honoured with an Order of Australia Medal and a Centenary Medal. Don’s achievements and commitment to the community will make a difference to many generations to come. I extend my deepest sympathies to Jo and the Johns family. Vale, Don Johns.
