Celebrate Australia Day at events across the Alpine Shire

17 January 2014

AUSTRALIA Day is just around the corner, and there are family-friendly events on across the Alpine Shire.

Celebrate what it means to be Australian at Australia Day breakfasts in Myrtleford, Bright and Mount Beauty, or enjoy morning tea at Harrietville.

Alpine Shire Council Mayor Peter Roper said Australia Day was the perfect opportunity to recognise the achievements of residents with the Alpine Shire Australia Day Community Awards.

“We’re lucky to have some fantastic people excelling at their chosen field and contributing to their communities,” he said.

“These awards are a way to recognise those residents who make their towns a better place, are overcoming obstacles to excel at what they do and are living in a way that positively impacts on the people around them.”

Awards will be presented for the following categories:
• Local Achiever of the Year for: Bright and District; Kiewa Valley and Myrtleford and District
• Local Young Achiever of the Year for: Bright and District; Kiewa Valley and Myrtleford and District
• Lifetime Achievement Award
