Bendigo is very much the richer for Russell Jack’s lifetime of involvement with the Bendigo Chinese Association, in particular his 32 years as president.
We all owe Russell a big thank you for his commitment and his vision in strengthening the association’s links with the wider community, both in Australia and overseas, as well as the development of the Golden Dragon Museum precinct and his ability to make things happen.
Under his leadership, the Chinese Association has not only continued to be a significant part of Easter in Bendigo, but also in raising awareness of the city’s history and culture.
The Golden Dragon Museum has become a big drawcard for tourists from around the world.
While Russell has chosen to stand down as president, I am sure that everyone in our community hopes that his involvement and guidance continues for many years to come.
