The Griffith Australia Day Awards recognise volunteers who perform extraordinary or outstanding voluntary work in the Griffith electorate.
The Griffith Australia Day Awards recipients were nominated by locals from our community who have noticed the work of these community trailblazers, and were selected by a committee of community leaders.
“I thank the community committee, Chair, Mr Craig Bowen OAM, and committee members, the Honourable Paul Lucas and Ms Faith Hopkins who worked diligently in helping to select such highly deserving recipients this Australia Day,” Ms Butler said.
The recipients will be honoured with a special ceremony, to be held by Ms Butler in the coming months, to recognise the Southside’s hardworking volunteers.
