THE spotlight is primed and ready to shine on individuals, organisations and events that are having a positive impact on the community, with nominations now open for the annual City of Clarence Australia Day Awards.
The City of Clarence Australia Day Awards reward and recognise individuals and organisations that have made a noteworthy contribution to their local community, above and beyond normal duties.
The award categories include Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, and Community Event of the Year.
Clarence City Council Mayor Alderman Doug Chipman said Clarence had many inspiring people, of all walks of life and ages, and the City of Clarence Australia Day Awards were a perfect opportunity to shine a light on the positive impact they make on the city.
“With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to unfold, it has been another uncertain year and I have no doubt that once again many of our residents have risen to the challenge and gone the extra mile to make a positive difference in our community,” he said.
“I encourage everyone to take the time to nominate a person, group or event that has really made a difference to the lives of Clarence residents in the past year – recognise and reward someone who truly makes Clarence a brighter place.”
