The Southside’s unsung heroes will be honoured this Sunday at the Griffith Australia Day Awards, hosted each year by Terri Butler MP.
“This year the 19th annual Griffith Australia Day Awards will acknowledge the wonderful work of our local heroes – from environmental lawyers to dedicated musicians, to keen gardeners and effective P&C leaders, the Southside has it all,” Ms Butler said.
Each year Ms Butler selects outstanding community members to form a committee, who then carefully consider who should be conferred a Griffith Australia Day Award from a large number of nominations.
“For this year’s awards I’ve appointed a wonderful committee, led by Mr Matthew Campbell, and they’ve upheld the high standards we’ve come to expect from previous committees in conferring the awards,” Ms Butler said.
“On Sunday we will celebrate the achievements of more than 40 local people, who work tirelessly across many different activities” Ms Butler said.
Receiving a Griffith Australia Day Award means you have gone above and beyond what’s expected, to show initiative, make achievements, inspire others and show dedication and reliability.
The 19th annual Griffith Australia Day Awards will be held on Sunday 28th January at 2pm, followed by afternoon tea.
The award ceremony will be held at Souths Leagues Club, Davies Park, 120 Jane Street, West End.
