Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Moira Shire wel­comed its new­est Aus­tralian ci­ti­zens at a spe­cial cer­e­mony re­cently at the Co­bram Civic Cen­tre.

Orig­i­nally from coun­tries in­clud­ing Nepal, Malaysia, In­dia, United King­dom, Canada, Thai­land, Chile and the Philip­pines, the group took the next steps in their life in Aus­tralia by be­com­ing ci­ti­zens at a cer­e­mony at­tended by Moira Shire Coun­cil­lors along with Mem­ber for Mur­ray Damian Drum and Mem­ber for Ovens Val­ley Tim McCurdy.

Mayor Li­bro Mus­tica said he was proud to in­duct these new ci­ti­zens, who now re­side in towns through­out the shire, with those com­mu­ni­ties strength­ened by the com­mit­ment shown by this group. “Our new ci­ti­zens have al­ready be­come in­te­gral mem­bers of our lo­cal towns and are ac­tive mem­bers of sport­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions and com­mu­nity groups,” Cr Mus­tica said.

“Through our Aus­tralian ci­ti­zen­ship we all share a com­mit­ment to val­ues in­clud­ing mu­tual re­spect, equal­ity, free­dom of speech and re­li­gion, the rule of law and democ­racy.

“Our ci­ti­zen­ship means we all be­long to the Aus­tralian fam­ily and we can all en­joy the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and priv­i­leges of liv­ing in this coun­try and hav­ing a say in its fu­ture.”
