Congratulations to the Eurobodalla community for your overwhelming support for love and voting yes.
The marriage equality survey results show the majority of the community across Australia voted yes, with 64.9 per cent of people in the Eden-Monaro electorate supporting marriage equality.
You have taken a stand in this historic survey and showed how love can win.
Thank you to everyone who took part in local events, made calls to family and friends and otherwise worked hard to get the job done.
We now look forward with hope to a free vote in the Federal Parliament to turn the survey result into laws guaranteeing marriage equality.
The Greens will do all we can so we have marriage equality nationally before the end of the year. We know the local community will be watching closely so it becomes a reality.
On Saturday, November 4, Brok and Narelle Kuczerow were married at the All Saints Church, Bodalla, and held their wedding reception at Narooma Golf Club.
Narelle’s parents, Colin and Lynne Jones, and Brok’s mother, Julie Kuczerow were in attendance and friends and family travelled to the area from as far as New Zealand to witness the nuptials.
Brok and Narelle both grew up on the Far South Coast, attending Narooma Primary School and Central Tilba Primary School receptively.
The couple then both attended Narooma High School where Brok’s brother was a friend of Narelle’s.
The couple now both work within the Eurobodalla Shire and reside at Tuross Head.
Brok and Narelle’s families wish them a happy future together.
During the Remembrance Day address by Narooma RSL sub-branch President Paul Naylor, he made mention of the many animals involved in war zones over the years.
Medals of bravery have gone to several of these animals and it is humbling to go on-line and look up their individual stories of courage and resilience.
The RSL has allowed a small tribute to be added to the shrine area in memoriam.
Sadly, we also have peacetime stories of companion animals surviving deprivation and hardships and yet remaining steadfast and loyal.
Such qualities allow us to re-home pets and to give them a second chance. If you can help an animal in need, then please consider adopting from a pet rescue site such as the AWL.
There is a pet out there that needs you.
Matching you up is the key and we have trained liaison officers who can help you.
In care we have our oldest, Tigre, an eight-year-old brown tabby who is a senior now displaced and in dire need of a quiet home.
Our longest cat in care is Martha, who was left with her 6 kittens at the vet. Now the kittens have grown, but Martha is still without a home.
