Nom­i­nate top cit­i­zen for award

Gatton Star - - YOUR SAY - Ali Kuchel Ali.kuchel@gat­ton­

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.
