Roar Community Barbeque

Mr MARK COURE (OatleyMinister for Multiculturalism, and Minister for Seniors)

——Speaker, I rise to acknowledge the Residents Organisation at Riverwood, also known as ROAR, for the amazing work they do through their weekly community BBQ's. ROAR is a great local organisation that works extremely hard to support the local community in Riverwood. They collaborate with other local entities, including the Riverwood Community Centre, to ensure that the needs of the community are met through their services. It was great to see the Riverwood community coming down to support the event, whether it was for a free sausage sizzle, a chat, or just to see what was going on, the turnout was fantastic. It was a pleasure to be able to support ROAR by donating the sausages to the event, which were enjoyed by all. I had one myself and I must say, they were very well cooked by the fabulous volunteers manning the barbeque. I am so proud of the work that ROAR does in Riverwood, and I look forward to working closely alongside them into the future.
