Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan): I had the pleasure of attending the great Lunar New Year celebrations organised by the Point Cook Cultural Community. I was joined by many distinguished guests and the multicultural community of Point Cook. Point Cook is one of the fastest growing suburbs, and it is now the home to many people of Chinese descent. The lunar festival featured lion dances, a dragon dance and beautiful performances of traditional dance and music. The Lunar New Year celebration was an outstanding way to highlight the contributions of Chinese people, including in the arenas of arts, sciences and education. I wish to thank Bob Fairclough and the Point Cook Cultural Community for organising the amazing celebration. It was the fourth celebration of the Lunar New Year, and I hope to join the community for the festival in the coming years.
