Congratulations to Peter Parussolo from Carlton Parkville Probus Club (VIC) for winning a trip to Angourie Resort, Yamba.

Peter's submission is a 585mm x 400mm x 80mm lemonwood carving that he made for his daughter and son in law. Peter shares "It has taken me three and a half months to complete. I would go out to my shed for an hour and end up doing 4 hours more, I just got lost in the concentration of doing it. It has been a lifesaver for me in a time of being home and not able to go out with my friends."
