Member for Lowan Emma Kealy has described Australia Day celebrations in her electorate last month as ‘a wonderful celebration of community’.
She thanked community groups and councils that organised and ran celebrations from small towns to regional centres.
“Awards recognised the invaluable contribution volunteers make to our community, together with citizen-of-the-year awards honouring people who have worked tirelessly to make our region a better place to live,” she said.
“Order of Australia accolades were presented to several amazing and well-deserving residents and I congratulate them on this outstanding achievement.”
Ms Kealy said she also welcomed new Australian citizens who took the oath of affirmation to Australia and acknowledged the first custodians of land – Australia’s Aboriginal people.
“We are lucky to call Australia home, and while I understand the date is inflammatory to some, the intent of celebrating all the things that make Australia great should be celebrated,” she said.
“We live in an amazing country which is filled with so many inspiring people – all with a different story to tell, different experiences and something different to add to Australia’s journey and growth. Thanks to all Australians for adding their own special inspiration to what it means to be Australian.”
