Join in the fun on Australia Day

AUSTRALIA Day is just around the corner, and Council is hosting events across the Alpine Shire to celebrate the holiday and pay tribute to the hard work of our communities.

Mayor Jan Vonarx said Australia Day is an opportunity to thank all of those residents who give their time for their communities.

“Each year on Australia Day we recognise those who help make our communities such wonderful places to live,” she said.

“Recipients of the Alpine Shire Australia Day Community Awards are nominated by members of the public in a range of categories, including achiever and young achiever of the year, community event of the year and community organisation of the year.

“This is our way if helping shed light on the hard work and dedication of the many people who volunteer their time to run events, raise funds for their communities and support others.”

Residents and visitors are invited to join in Australia Day celebrations being held across the Alpine Shire on Monday, 26 January 2015. Council is a proud sponsor of these events.
