Celebrating Australia Day RecipientsMarch 25, 2020 10:48 pm
Congratulations to Dot Vickery OAM, who was this year’s Guyra citizen of the year. Her phenomenal community work and contribution to the public and local government has caught the attention at the Australia Day honours ceremony receiving the Medal of the Order of Australia. “You don’t do things for accolades; you do them because you want the community to progress.” Dot went on to say. Inverell’s citizen of the year was Trish Keightley on the Sunday’s Australia Day awards ceremony at the Inverell Town Hall. It is astounding that she holds the volunteer role at Inverell Breast Cancer Support Group (for two years running) and has been important to several fundraising activities with McLean Care.
