Nominate top citizen for award
THIS weekend is Australia Day.
While it is a great day where many people will get a long weekend (we will be working and in the office) it is also a great time to kick back and enjoy being an Australian.
Our two local councils, Lockyer Valley Regional Council and Somerset Regional Council, will each be putting on a shindig, celebrating the top citizens in each shire.
Although this year’s awards will be presented at the weekend, it’s a good opportunity to start thinking of someone you might like to nominate for an award.
Each council has a number of awards, from groups and volunteer organisations to individual and sporting efforts.
You just have to take a look through our paper to see the wonderful achievements people are doing in our communities to know there is not a short supply of nominees.
So while you put on some thongs and sunscreen and slap a snag on the barbecue, have a think about who would make a great citizen of the year for 2020 in the Lockyer or Somerset Region.
Happy Australia Day.
