Koroit's Margaret Laurence has been honoured for six decades of contribution to floral art in the south-west.
Last Sunday, a ceremony was held at the Koroit Botanic Gardens to unveil a plaque in honour of Mrs Laurence and her work with the Koroit and Warrnambool Floral Art groups.
Mrs Laurence and the Koroit Floral Art Group meet once a month and provide arrangements to events in the town such as the Koroit Show, the Koroit Lions Club Art Show and the Koroit Irish Festival.
Mrs Laurence, who will turn 91 in February, said she was greatly honoured by the plaque and planned to continue her work with the floral art groups.
Mrs Laurence has another unique place in the history of Koroit, as she was the first and only female mayor of the Koroit Borough Council, serving in that leadership role in 1982-83.
The lure of a Hollywood blockbuster on the big screen created a Sunday night with a difference in Koroit.
A big crowd turned out at Victoria Park to watch the Karate Kid at Victoria Park.
A cool but fine summer night meant the audience enjoyed the film without interruption.
The screening was part of the Moyne Shire Youth Council's Under the Stars program.
It followed a drive in screening at Port Fairy of another 1980s classic, Ghostbusters. Over 300 people attended this.
Guided tours of one of Moyne's most iconic landmarks is part of the prize package on offer to encourage people to support local businesses.
Moyne Shire mayor Daniel Meade said council's Love Local Campaign had resumed for a second run after a successful opening roll-out prior to Christmas.
Included in this announcement was the naming of guided tours of Tower Hill as being up for grabs.
Moyne businesses offering prizes as part of the campaign include Noodledoof in Koroit, the Kirkstall Hotel, Salty Dog fishing charters and Go Surf Lessons in Port Fairy, Suffoir Winery and Geo Tour Budj Bim in Macarthur.
"Council is very excited to launch the next Love Local competition, particularly as the first two have had such a positive response from both local businesses and members of the community," Cr Meade said.
"With over $10,000 worth of prizes, I encourage everyone to get out there, support our businesses by spending locally and get in the draw to win."
To enter the competition, shoppers need to spend at least $20 at any business in the Moyne Shire.
