MOS­MAN Park’s Aus­tralia Day awards went to a school chap­lain, a youth coun­cil ad­vi­sor, a Men’s Shed mem­ber and a com­mu­nity group at a Cottes­loe Civic Cen­tre cer­e­mony last month.

Rhonda Miller, who has been the chap­lain for Mos­man Park Pri­mary School and School for Deaf Chil­dren since 2007, was crowned Cit­i­zen of the Year.

“Rhonda has demon­strated lead­er­ship on sev­eral com­mu­nity is­sues, en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal chil­dren to par­tic­i­pate in char­i­ta­ble works as well as help­ing at-risk fam­i­lies and or­gan­is­ing An­zac and Naidoc cel­e­bra­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties,” Mayor Ron Nor­ris said.

The Youth Cit­i­zen was Amy Brades, who was recog­nised for her “pos­i­tive and in­spir­ing” mem­ber­ship of both the Town and its Youth Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil since 2014.

Se­nior Cit­i­zen of the Year was res­i­dent Brian Mill­more, who is chair­man of the Mos­man Park Com­mu­nity Men’s Shed, while the Com­mu­nity Group of the Year 2017 award was pre­sented to the Mos­man Park Com­mu­nity Group.
