Let’s cel­e­brate the day for all Aussies

North West Telegraph - - News - Camilo Blanco Camilo Blanco is the Mayor of the Town of Port Hed­land.

The Town of Port Hed­land will be host­ing its an­nual Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions from 5pm-9pm on Satur­day, Jan­uary 26, at the Civic Cen­tre Gar­dens.

This will be a free event, and will in­clude a range of en­ter­tain­ment for the fam­ily to en­joy. Aus­tralia Day fes­tiv­i­ties will kick off at 5pm with a range of ac­tiv­i­ties, en­ter­tain­ment and com­pe­ti­tions through­out the evening.

This will in­clude a wa­ter­melon-eat­ing com­pe­ti­tion, live mu­sic, circus show, magic show and the Pil­bara Ports Au­thor­ity fire­works spec­tac­u­lar.

Aus­tralia Day is an im­por­tant day of the year, and it is a great op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to come to­gether and cel­e­brate what it means to be Aus­tralian.

I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to come down to the Civic Cen­tre Gar­dens and take this op­por­tu­nity to en­joy be­ing a part of Port Hed­land.

The Town of Port Hed­land will also be host­ing an Aus­tralia Day ci­ti­zen­ship cer­e­mony and Ci­ti­zen of the Year Awards on the morn­ing of Jan­uary 26.

Aus­tralian ci­ti­zen­ship is more than just a cer­e­mony and forms an im­por­tant part of Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions.

Re­ceiv­ing your ci­ti­zen­ship on Aus­tralia Day is a unique and spe­cial ex­pe­ri­ence and marks a shared iden­tity, a com­mon bond which unites all Aus­tralians while re­spect­ing our di­ver­sity.

Along with the ci­ti­zen­ship cer­e­mony the Town will be recog­nis­ing the out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als and com­mu­nity groups with the Ci­ti­zen of the Year Awards.

These awards are de­signed to recog­nise cit­i­zens in the com­mu­nity who go above and be­yond on a daily ba­sis to make Hed­land a bet­ter place.

The four award cat­e­gories in­clude Com­mu­nity Ci­ti­zen of the Year, Award for Ac­tive Ci­ti­zen­ship — Group or Event, Com­mu­nity Ci­ti­zen of the Year — Se­nior and Com­mu­nity Ci­ti­zen of the Year — Youth.

The fam­ily friendly, al­co­hol-free event of­fers a true sense of com­mu­nity spirit hosted by the Town of Port Hed­land in con­junc­tion with ma­jor spon­sors Pil­bara Ports Au­thor­ity.
