The City of Maroondah holds a series of Citizenship Ceremonies throughout the year, whereby candidates make a declaration of citizenship to Australia.
The Mayor officiates the Citizenship Ceremonies and this evening I had the pleasure of welcoming 88 new Citizens into Maroondah. This evening we had several Councillors in attendance, as well as State and Federal Members of Parliament and it was great to see the strong level of interest in Maroondah’s citizenship ceremonies.
The ceremony is held at the Karralyka Centre and includes entertainment form the Croydon Brass Band. One of the unique attributes of Maroondah is the strong level of volunteerism and community organisations and the Ceremonies provide a great introduction to the many groups that exist throughout the municipality.
