Maroondah Citizenship Ceremony – October 2010

By August 31, 2010September 20th, 2010No Comments

While migration and settlement is a Federal responsibility, Local Government conducts citizenship ceremonies to confirm new Australians and to officially welcome them into the municipality.

The City of Maroondah holds several Citizenship Ceremonies throughout the year, providing opportunities for participants to be declared citizens of Australia. The Mayor officiates the Citizenship Ceremonies and this evening I had the pleasure of welcoming these Citizens into Maroondah.

One aspect I highlight at the Citizenship Ceremonies is the strong community and volunteering spirit that exists within Maroondah and I encourage residents and new citizens to get involved in their local community.
