MEET Rochester’s newest Australian citizens.
Phil Charge and Ellie Trist joined seven other people to officially became citizens at a ceremony in Echuca last week.
Phil moved to Australia from Ireland in 1968 when she married an Australian.
After living in Melbourne for 40 years, she decided to make a tree change to Rochester. Ellie met her husband in Rochester in 2014 while backpacking and decided to make her holiday permanent.
She is studying to become an accountant while she was raising her children with her husband.
