NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR AUSTRALIA DAY AWARDS
The 2018 Mareeba Shire Council Australia Day Awards are now open for those hoping to nominate a fellow co-workers, businesses or volunteers. There will be a ceremony to celebrate the nominees and winners at the Mareeba International Club held on Thursday, January 25, 2018. It will also include a citizenship ceremony. Nomination forms are available from the Mareeba Shire Council customer service centres in Mareeba and Kuranda, or online at www.msc.qld.gov.au. Entries must be received by 3pm Monday, December 18, 2017. Mayor Tom Gilmore said he is hoping that the community focuses on those in the community that aren’t normally recognised. He said it is a great way to recognise the shires’ unsung heroes who have done extraordinary things for, or on behalf, of the community.
