People from all corners of the globe to receive citizenship
Almost 200 people from overseas destinations will pledge their allegiance to our country at this year's Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony in the Maroochy Shire.
Maroochy Deputy Mayor Zrinka Johnston said 161 adults and 31 children would receive citizenship certificates at the Nambour Civic Centre on Wednesday 26 January.
"On our national day we will welcome 200 new Australians into the Maroochy community," Cr Johnston said.
"Australia Day is an opportunity to reflect on our heritage and celebrate our rich and diverse culture, and the Nambour Civic Centre will come alive with people from many nationalities and cultures wanting to call Australia their home.
"Maroochy is extremely lucky to have such a diverse, multicultural society and as a naturalised Australian myself, I warmly welcome these new Australians into our community."
Cr Johnston added that Australia Day provides us all with the opportunity to reflect on the meaning and importance of being Australian and to remember the things that are great about our nation - the diversity of our population, our indigenous heritage, our freedom and our mateship.
The Maroochy Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony will be held at the Nambour Civic Centre on Wednesday 26 January commencing at 12.00 noon.
