Australia Day Breakfast

Come and join our Councillors at the annual Australia Day breakfast, commencing at 7.30am on 26 January at the Bridgetown Agricultural Showgrounds.

Shire President, Cr Tony Pratico, said “Australia Day is not about any one thing.  Its about many things, it is about acknowledging whatever it is that makes our country and particularly our community and our society good and celebrating it.  This year will be a special time as Bridgetown celebrates 150 years since the town’s gazettal”.

“It is also an appropriate occasion to recognise and thank those members of our communities who invest so much of their time and effort over the years to ensure that we continue to enjoy a quality of life envied around the world.  The tireless work of such individuals and community groups forms an integral part in fostering national pride and community spirit. This year we will publicly acknowledge our 2018 Australia Day Award Winners – Barbara Johnson, Rita Baldock, Douglas Sumner-McGhie and the Greenbushes Tidy Towns Committee.”
