Tomorrow we all get the day off work and a chance to celebrate how lucky we are to live in this wonderful part of the world.
That’s because tomorrow is Australia Day, and it is an opportunity for us all to take a break from our daily lives and celebrate all of the things that we cherish about Australia.
A lot of Bacchus Marsh households will be holding backyard barbeques or spending the day by the pool, or some may be attending local community events.
The Moorabool Shire Council will be holding official Australia Day celebrations tomorrow at the Mechanics Hall on Inglis Street in Ballan.
The official events will get underway at 8:00am and will include the following:
- Community BBQ Breakfast
- Musical Entertainment
- Town Crier
- Australia Day Ambassador – Anne Peacock
- Flag Raising
- Citizen of the Year Award Presentation
- Young citizen of the Year Award Presentation
- Community Event of the Year Award Presentation
- Mayor’s Award Presentations
- Australian Citizenship Ceremony
Our local community event should be a heap of fun, by no matter how you intend to spend Australia Day, I hope you have a great day and get the opportunity to celebrate all of the things that make you proud to call Australia (and Bacchus Marsh) home.
