Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The Australia Day Awards were also announced at today’s Australia day citizenship ceremony as follows:

ü  RSL Unley sub branch President Les Partridge was announced as Citizen of the Year

ü  Kimberly Lovegrove as Young Citizen of the Year
ü  The event of the year was presented to the Amadya Muslim Women’s Bazaar at Clarence Park Community Centre. Rubab Avais, as the organiser, was presented the award.

Kylie Mangelsdorf was presented an appreciation award for her contribution in working with children with an Autism Spectrum disorder.

Unley is blessed to have these volunteers, and the many others contributing their time.

I had a chance to catch up with Les and with Rubab Avais after the official function had completed.

Rubab Avais (pictured above with me) was most surprised that her “little” efforts would be recognised in such a way. One of the reasons perhaps that she and her group won the award.
