reading. But let us not fool ourselves that providing a library building and spaces and shelves for books is all that is needed to produce well-read students.

Tuggeranong Community Council

MS BURCH (Brindabella—Minister for Community Services, Minister for the Arts, Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Minister for Ageing, Minister for Women and Minister for Gaming and Racing) (9.24): I can see them tweeting over there, so just for the record I do attend the Tuggeranong Community Council. I will continue to attend the Tuggeranong Community Council to support the good people of Tuggeranong. I am also very pleased to support Darryl Johnston in any activity that he puts forward to us.

Mr Hanson: It's too late.

MS BURCH: Too late to go to Tuggeranong clean-up day? I do not know what you are talking about there. I just wanted to be very clear. They can tweet away and misrepresent anything they like, but I know that I have turned up regularly to the Tuggeranong Community Council meetings. I will continue to turn up to the Tuggeranong Community Council meetings, as I will to other community forums in my electorate of Brindabella.

Royal Australian Air Force Association

MR HANSON (Molonglo) (9.25): I rise tonight to talk about a function that I attended on Monday at the Commonwealth Club with the Royal Australian Air Force Association ACT Division. For those that do not know about the RAAF Association, I will just read briefly from their website:

The RAAF Association is a non-profit organisation promoting social activities, welfare, commemoration events, aviation history and the memory of fallen friends.

The ACT Division of the Association meets every second month at the Canberra Services Club—

That is a little out of date. It is now the Commonwealth Club, obviously, Mr Speaker—

Manuka ACT. Every second meeting is a luncheon meeting, when we have a guest speaker who joins us for lunch before speaking on a subject of interest to veterans. In addition, the Division holds an Anzac Day luncheon after the march and an end-of-year Christmas dinner.

Membership is open to all serving and ex-RAAF, WRAAF and members of other Air Forces and those with an interest in aviation. The Division is always looking for new members to assist in Association activities and to contribute their expertise. Duties are not onerous and many find it most rewarding.
