Nominations invited for Fisher Australia Day Awards
Member for Fisher Peter Slipper is inviting nominations for the 13th annual Fisher Community Australia Day Awards.
The awards recognise those in the community who work hard in a variety of endeavours to make their community a better place.
“Australia Day is a wonderful celebration of all things good in this great country, and what better way to commemorate the day than to recognise publicly those who work hard for their community and for their fellow citizens,” Mr Slipper said.
The Fisher Australia Day Awards were first held by Mr Slipper in 2000 to recognise those in the Electorate of Fisher who give considerable amounts of their own time to make their community a better place to live. Recipients are recognised for their contributions in the areas of community service, industry and commerce, the arts, sport and recreation, and for their work with seniors’ groups, sporting clubs, youth organisations and the like.
“Our dedicated and hard-working residents don’t seek accolades for what they do - they do it for the love of their community - but Australia Day gives us an opportunity to say thanks publicly and to let them know that we do recognise their contributions, which are very much appreciated,” Mr Slipper said.
The presentations are made at a special ceremony at Lake Kawana Community Centre on Australia Day, January 26.
“It’s always an enjoyable event; people are there to show their respect and appreciation for our community workers while also commemorating Australia Day.”
Nomination forms for 2012 are available from Mr Slipper’s office, or by phoning 07-5444 4888 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
