WITH a small list of award win­ners, the Eidsvold Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions kicked off with a smoking hot break­fast.

It was a great re­minder that the com­mu­nity of Eidsvold shares more than an ad­dress.

The com­mu­nity has al­ways come to­gether on Aus­tralia Day in Apex Park and it’s a very happy fam­ily.

Dot Hamil­ton AO said it has been a tra­di­tion for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether on Aus­tralia Day – go­ing back fur­ther than she can re­mem­ber.

“I wish that there would have been more nom­i­na­tions this year,” Ms Hamil­ton said.

“Our young peo­ple in the town need to be re­warded for just be­ing great kids,” she said.

The Lions Club put on a hearty break­fast and lo­cal artists Michelle Croner and Bruce Row­botham played top coun­try mu­sic and sang some knee-slap­ping songs.
