NEW AUS­TRALIANS MORE THAN WEL­COME IN DOU­GLAS

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LETTERS -

It was won­der­ful hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend the cit­i­zen­ship cer­e­mony in Rex Smeal Park last week.

That a record 27 new Aus­tralians from all over the world would choose to set­tle in our tiny shire is tes­ti­mony to the warmth of the lo­cal com­mu­nity, and the beauty of the re­gion.

Thank you Mayor Leu for tak­ing the time to in­tro­duce all the new Aus­tralians and for invit­ing them all to share a lit­tle about them­selves and why they de­cided to call Dou­glas home.

It was also great to see a turnout of friends and fam­ily so large there weren’t enough seats for ev­ery­one.

The shire is no doubt bet­ter with the 27 new ad­di­tions from around the world.

Luke Theobald, Port Dou­glas
