MESSAGE FROM OUR COMMISSIONER
A Guid New Year tae yin an’ a’,
And moony may ye see,
And during a’ the year tae come,
Oh happy may ye be.”
Another Christmas is behind us and 2012 is well under way. May it be a good one for us all. Maimie and I went up to Eildon for a week with a few friends to bring in the New Year. Just after midnight I went outside to play my pipes. To my surprise, there was another piper at the property next door and another across the river. It seems that Scottish traditions are alive and well in North-East Victoria.
Best wishes to you all from your Commissioner,

XMAS MESSAGE FROM LADY SALTOUN
Once again Xmas and the New Year approach, with increasing speed every year, and I am anything but ready for them. 2011 has not been a very good year in this part of the world, or, indeed in many parts of the world, so we must hope for better things in 2012.
With that in mind, I wish you all a happy Christmas, and a happy and prosperous New Year.
