Com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives sought for Oz Day com­mit­tee

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

Ed­ward River Coun­cil is seek­ing two com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tives to serve on its new Aus­tralia Day Com­mit­tee, which will over­see the de­liv­ery of Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions in the re­gion and se­lect re­cip­i­ents of the an­nual Aus­tralia Day Awards.

Mayor Norm Bren­nan, who will serve on the com­mit­tee along­side Deputy Mayor Pat Fog­a­rty and Coun­cil­lor Marg Bull, en­cour­aged com­mu­nity-minded res­i­dents to con­sider join­ing the com­mit­tee.

‘‘Ed­ward River Coun­cil’s Aus­tralia Day Com­mit­tee will play an im­por­tant role in plan­ning and de­liv­er­ing lo­cal cel­e­bra­tions for Aus­tralia Day,’’ Cr Bren­nan said.

‘‘The com­mit­tee will also over­see the ad­min­is­tra­tion of our lo­cal Aus­tralia Day Awards Scheme, which recog­nises the con­tri­bu­tions and achieve­ments of the un­sung he­roes in our com­mu­nity who work tire­lessly to make the Ed­ward River re­gion an even bet­ter place to live.’’

Cr Bren­nan said one event will be held to cel­e­brate Aus­tralia Day 2018, at De­niliquin’s War­ing Gar­dens.

‘‘While the for­mer Conargo Shire Coun­cil and De­niliquin Coun­cil held their own Aus­tralia Day events, Ed­ward River Coun­cil has now con­sol­i­dated our Aus­tralia Day Award cat­e­gories and will be bring­ing the two com­mu­ni­ties to­gether in hold­ing one event,’’ he said.

‘‘For this com­ing Aus­tralia Day, we will be con­tin­u­ing the good work of the De­niliquin Lions and Ro­tary Club of De­niliquin and hold­ing the event at War­ing Gar­dens, but the com­mit­tee will cer­tainly be re­view­ing how and where lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties are held in the fu­ture.’’

Com­mit­tee mem­bers will serve a three­year term and can nom­i­nate in­di­vid­u­ally or can be nom­i­nated as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of a com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tion or ser­vice club.

Nom­i­na­tions are now open and will close this Fri­day. Nom­i­na­tion forms are avail­able on­line at www.ed­wardriver.nsw.gov.au or from coun­cil’s cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tre at 180 Cressy Street, De­niliquin.
