Exceptional people recognised at Australia Day awards

Mayor Anne Baker with Isaac region Citizen of the Year award winner, Andrea Moller from Clermont

An inspiring 43 people, groups and businesses were recognised at Australia Day events as part of Isaac’s Australia Day Awards across the region yesterday.

The 2020 Isaac region Australia Day awards paid tribute to the individuals, groups and organisations who have made a significant contribution to the social, civic, sporting and cultural life of the region.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said the award winners are worthy recipients who play an integral part in the community and encourage a positive difference to the lives of those around them.

“We are region rich in resources, but we are also blessed with the greatest resource of all – our people,” Mayor Baker said.

“We heard about people who donate their time to bring sport, arts and culture to our region; we heard about organisations that have raised thousands for charities; we heard about young people that personify the spirit of Isaac through their passion and work; and so many more,” Cr Baker said.

“It is people like these who make me proud to be in Isaac. And despite the welcome rain, it was great to see so many come out in support to well attended events across the region.

“Congratulations to each of our nominees and winners; your hard work and passion is truly inspiring”.
