WITH the proposed YES Youth Hub one step
closer to being funded and operational, the hub
is excited to announce the employment of Mi-
chael Feehan in the role of project worker.
Bass Coast Shire councillors recently moved to
consider funding the hub officially when it con-
siders the 2017/18 budget in the coming months.
Michael, a community officer at Bass Coast
YMCA, is dedicating 15 hours a week to getting
the new youth hub facility up and running.
“We’re working on getting set up, chasing funds,
getting support and just getting the word out
about our facilities and services,” Michael said.
While the hub works on securing the neces-
sary funding needed to pay for rent and utili-
ties, Michael is working on establishing the
hub, as well as letting the community know
more about the future resource for young peo -
ple in Bass Coast.
“The hub is about structured projects and
connecting all service providers. It’ll be a one-
stop-shop for young people,” Michael said.
Michael has a passion for working and engag-
ing with the community of Bass Coast.
He first started at the YMCA as a community de-
velopment officer, working with local young people
through youth mentoring programs at schools.
“Kids could ask for support regarding any-
thing in their lives,” Michael said.
Michael also has a background in psychol-
ogy, and is completing a Master of Community
“For me, that foundation is what builds com-
munities, if the community is strong and con-
nected,” Michael said.
The proposed youth hub will provide much
needed support and services to local youth.
“The statistics regarding Bass Coast really
demonstrate that there’s a need for educational
and employment support, as well as drugs and
alcohol counselling and sexual health educa-
tion,” Michael said.
“There’s certainly a need for it.
Until the youth hub comes to fruition, Mi-
chael and other officers from the Bass Coast
YMCA are more than happy to provide help and
assistance to those who need it.
“The YMCA is not just a gym,” Michael said.
“They provide and offer so many services in
so many different ways. We’re always happy to
speak to people and help them out.”

THE weather could not have been better for
the 32nd staging of ‘Polenta Day’ at the State
Coal Mine site last Sunday.
What started out as an extended family
gathering three decades ago has become a
popular annual event now, acknowledging
both the involvement of the Italian commu-
nity in the history of Wonthaggi and the town’s
That’s why the event is staged in the com-
munity rotunda and barbecue area at the
mine each year.
After lunch, where it wasn’t exclusively po-
lenta, and a few wines, the day was topped off
with conversation and a happy sing-a-long to
the strains of a piano accordion.
MATHEW Wilson and Rebecca Muir were
married in their garden at their home in Leon-
gatha on December 3, 2016.
Rebecca, the eldest daughter of Chris and
Christine Muir of Korumburra, was attended to
by best friend Jenna Tomada and her cousins
Natasha Chambers and Kelly O’Neill.
Her younger sister Amy was ring bearer.
Rebecca’s ivory dress featured a lace bodice
with a cut-out diamond shape at the back and
a short train.
Mathew, the only son of Stephen and Judy Wil-
son of Leongatha, was attended to by best friends
Mat O’Malley, Leigh Foster and Peter McNiven.
They wore navy pin stripped pants with brac-
es and bow ties.
Their reception was held at the Dakers Cen-
tre in Leongatha.
A NATIONAL Youth Week event will be held at
The Salvation Army Leongatha Car Park (top of
Long Street) on Friday, March 31 from 11am
The strictly alcohol and drug free festival will
host service information stalls focused on health,
wellbeing, education and employment pathways,
offering lots of entertainment, free food and fun.
Leongatha Secondary College’s school rock band
‘Grandma on the Loose’ will headline the event.
The festival is designed to showcase the talent
and positive contribution young people make to
their local community.
Entertainment and activities at the event will
include a rowing competition to win a 12 month
membership to Voyage Fitness; boxing demonstra-
tions, animal farm, drumming circles with Steve
Schulz and positive thinking, mindfulness and
guided meditation sessions led by Danielle Aitken.
There will be something for everyone to enjoy!
The Lion’s Club are supporting the event provid-
ing free snags, buckets of chips and cold drinks.
There will also be lucky door prizes and give-
aways, including the H30 Challenge, an initiative
This event has been organised by the young peo-
ple of ECG College Leongatha VCAL Students, in
collaboration with SalvoCare Eastern Gippsland.
The students have done an excellent job in the
event planning process, which showcases their en-
thusiasm and achievements, whilst attending an
alternative to mainstream school.
The event is supported by the Common-
wealth and Victorian Governments.
