2009 Australia Day Awards and Citizenship Ceremony

By January 26, 2009No Comments

To commemorate Australia Day the City of Maroondah holds a citizenship ceremony as well as acknowledging the recipients and nominees for Maroondah’s Australia Day Awards.

The Australia Day Awards include three categories, citizen of the year, young citizen of the year and community event of the year. This year’s successful nominees were focused on social inclusion and accessibility, with Monkami’s Titanic Resunk performance and Jenny Newman from the Parent Support Network among the successful nominees.

The Australia Day Awards provide an opportunity to recognise the many people and groups that exist within Maroondah and the hard work they undertake within the community. It is always encouraging to see such a strong community interest within Maroondah.
