I have much to tell you about how I spent the Chinese New Year long weekend (awesome crazy markets, street parade, fireworks), and the Australia Day celebrations here (flags, vegemite, damper, terrible aussie slang and a screening of “Australia”), but in briefer news…
…in case you missed it in the Australia Day honours list, today Malcolm and Sally Begbie were both made Officers of the Order of Australia. Malcolm and Sally are the founders and directors of Crossroads Foundation, which is where I am! So, as you can imagine, the team here is thrilled.
You can read a bit more about it here (although there is an error in the article – the Begbie’s started Crossroads in 1995, not 2005 as stated). Also featured on the Crossroads website here.
If you’re the kind of person who gives thanks, then do that for these wonderful humble servants who continue to help so many through their work.
