Hills Relay for Life was held in May and is one of the biggest community events which is held annually in The Hills. This event helps raise funds for cancer research and programs at the Cancer Council. It was great to see many in our community get behind this important cause. Council contributes to this event each year - it was a great success and it will be good to see how much money it will raise next year. What a fantastic day, congratulations to all participants.

I recently met with members of the Hills Youth Army. It was great to see them out and about volunteering in our community and I was thrilled to hear about their bright ideas for our community. Far too often our youth are ignored - I am inspired by their enthusiasm and determination to make a difference. I will certainly do what I can to help them.
