Gladstone has gone above and beyond to welcome a new family.


Ian Olive, his wife Lisa, and his son Michael have moved to the town from Australia.

Lisa notes they are still getting used to the new country, language and people's names are still giving them trouble, but they will learn to adjust.

She adds the people of Gladstone are great -- on her second day in the country she had two ladies visit to welcome her to the community.

Ian is the new reverend at the Gladstone United Church, and thanks the people of Gladstone for welcoming them into the close-knit community.
