Do you know an individual, group or event making a difference in our community?

Give them the reward they deserve by nominating them for a Mount Alexander Shire Australia Day Award. The deadline for nominations has been extended until December.

“One of the things I love about Mount Alexander Shire is how much people give to their community,” said Cr Bronwen Machin, Mayor of Mount Alexander Shire.

“We have higher than average levels of volunteering and so many diverse groups and events that really shape where we live.

“It’s one of the few times a year that we get a chance to say thank you, and recognise the contribution that people are making in our community,” she said.

“There are four different categories so everyone is bound to know someone who fits the bill.”

The award categories are:
• Citizen of the Year
• Young Citizen of the Year
• Senior Citizen of the Year
• Community Event of the Year.

Pick up a nomination from the Civic Centre or Visitor Information Centres in Castlemaine and Maldon, or download a form at www.mountalexander.vic.gov.au/AustraliaDay.

Nominations close at 5.00pm on Monday 3 December 2018. The recipients will be announced at a community event on Australia Day at Victory Park.

For more information contact Council on 5471 1700 or info@mountalexander.vic.gov.au.
