City of Palmerston

WHEN: Friday 26 January 2018
WHERE: Palmerston Recreation Centre
TIME: 1pm

The City of Palmerston’s official Australia Day ceremony will be hosted at the Palmerston Recreation Centre from 1pm. Council extends a warm invitation to our community to attend this significant day and join us as we celebrate what we all love about our Country.

The event will commence with Welcome to Country, recognising local Aboriginal Culture. We will be celebrating our cultural diversity by proudly welcoming some of the country’s newest residents at a special citizenship ceremony, with the Palmerston’s defence community recognised with a tri-service flag raising ceremony.

The afternoon will culminate in the much anticipated announcement of the City’s coveted Australia Day Awards in three categories – Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Community Event of the Year. Designed to recognise the valuable contributions made to the local community by residents and community organisations, the awards are a highlight of the day’s events.

Australia Day Ambassador, Anita Newman, will be in attendance, with entertainment by Ken Brodie and Friends, didgeridoo player Les Huddleston and Lilla Wellington who will be singing the National Anthem.
