Youth group wins award
MOUNT Perry’s youth were the big winners when the Youth Group, led by Sharon Bryant, was awarded the Junior Cultural Award on Australia Day.
An accredited leader, Ms Bryant leads the after-school activities group in little athletics, sports activities, arts, crafts and musical expression.
On Friday afternoons, the group delights in the newly-established community garden opposite the Sport and Rec Club.
The Senior Cultural Award was presented to Cheryl Gerdes, whose artistic talents included the creation of a dragon for the relocated council library and community posters.
An active member of the Mt Perry Tourism and Heritage Group, Ms Gerdes also maintains exhibits and acts as tour guide at the museum.
