Proud of com­mu­nity

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA pi­o­neer Bruce Serisier came away with the town’s Cit­i­zen of the Year award, some­thing he was “not ex­pect­ing”.

Mr Serisier, who has been work­ing be­hind the scenes for the town for many years, was proud to be recog­nised at this year’s Aus­tralia Day awards cer­e­mony.

“It’s just one of those things where you don’t ex­pect to win awards, be­cause I don’t do it for that,” Mr Serisier said.

“I’m very sur­prised, that’s for sure.”

Mr Serisier holds sev­eral roles in Mun­dub­bera, in­clud­ing the sec­re­tary of the Li­ons

Club, the pres­i­dent of the Mun­dub­bera En­ter­prise As­so­ci­a­tion, the chair of the Her­itage Rail Group, and is a part of the Mun­dub­bera Small Bore Ri­fle Club.

“I thought it was good to see lots of young peo­ple win­ning awards on Sun­day with plenty of heavy in­volve­ments,” he said.

“So that was good to see.” Mr Serisier wanted to thank the com­mu­nity, the coun­cil for their in­volve­ment, and to Colleen Whe­lan for nom­i­nat­ing him.

“I’m pleased to rep­re­sent a strong com­mu­nity, the Mun­dub­bera com­mu­nity.”
