Australia Day Celebrations
Mayor urges residents to nominate for Australia Day Awards.
Shine the spotlight on our inspirational residents of the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council area, who have been doing great things in our communities by nominating them today for the 2018 Australia Day Awards. Nominations are NOW open until 1.00 pm on Monday 17 December 2018.
Pay tribute to someone who makes you proud to be an Australian, be it a friend, family member, workmate or someone you have met while serving the community, and nominate them for an Australia Day Award. The Australia Day awards provide the opportunity for recognition for the many residents who enrich our council area, through community service and outstanding achievement. Achievements can be a single outstanding achievement in the last year or numerous achievements over many years.
Nomination forms are available from the Council Administration Centre in Cootamundra and the Council Chambers in Gundagai, or by downloading from the CGRC website, www.cgrc.nsw.gov.au. The nomination form can also be completed online, printed and forwarded to Council, email@example.com.
Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council Mayor Cr Abb McAlister said the prestigious awards celebrate the outstanding achievers within our community.
“The CGRC Australia Day Awards pay tribute to outstanding individuals who, through their significant contribution and commitment, enrich the lives of others in the community,” Cr McAlister said.
“We have so many volunteers, who do amazing work across our region, I urge all residents to take a few minutes of their time, and complete a nomination form recognising the work, and achievements our residents do,” he added.
