Celebrating Local Legends

Federal Member for Moreton, Graham Perrett MP, will hold the nineth annual Moreton Australia Day Awards this Thursday.

The Moreton Australia Day Awards recognise the valuable contribution made by selfless individuals throughout the southside community.

‘It’s appropriate that on a day like Australia Day, we take the time to say thank you to those people in our community who have freely given their time, energy and expertise to help others and strengthen our community,’  said Mr Perrett.

There are 37 recipients from a broad range of backgrounds.  

Mr Perrett will be joined by Lady Benise Killen, who will present the Sir James Killen Award for Outstanding Community Service from one of the hardworking 37 nominees.

The Moreton Australia Day awards will be held at SunPAC and commence at 5.00pm.
