Golden Plains Shire Council was delighted to receive an invitation from the Governor, Honourable Linda Dessau AM and His Honour Judge Anthony Howard to share in the decoration of the Government House Christmas Tree on Friday 2 December.

The unveiling event was attended by Golden Plains Shire Council Mayor Cr Des Phelan, CEO Rod Nicholls, and the 2016 Golden Plains Australia Day Awards winners David Bruce, Jill Wheeler, Matthew Kinnia and Marita Seaton (representing Community Event of the Year 2016, Live @ Turtle Bend 2015).

Golden Plains supplied two Christmas pieces which speak to the joy, colour and warmth of the festive season and feature the natural characteristics of the municipality. The characteristics of both the Christmas present and the Christmas tree art pieces are predominantly the golden wheat and canola paddocks, various fodder crops, winery vineyards, sheep and the golden sun across the plains.

The artist, Colleen O’Loghlen, is a practicing glass artist whose preferred medium is fusing glass. She works in Golden Plains Shire and is a regular exhibitor across the South West Victoria region.
