Monto marks Australia Day
RESIDENTS from across the Monto township and beyond gathered for Australia Day on Sunday.
More than 100 spectators packed Monto Public Pool to celebrate as residents were recognised for their tireless efforts, and more than a dozen new citizens were welcomed. Mayor Rachel Chambers,
Australian Paralympic powerlifting coach William Nancarrow and Member for Flynn Ken O’Dowd spoke about pride and spirit.
Cr Chambers said Australians share the freedom to choose how we spend Australia Day. “It’s this freedom which makes being an Australian such a privilege,” she said.
