Kingston Australia Day Awards

Firstly, a big congratulations goes to the twelve new Australian citizens in Kingston. It’s always great to welcome new citizens (and some that have been here a while) into the community.

Some award winners of note this year:

Lesley McGurgan – Citizen of the Year
Lesley was (and still is) involved with a plethora of local communities and charities for over 20 years and was the former Mayor of the City of Mordialloc. Congratulations Lesley!

David Catchpool – 2014 Outstanding Citizen of the Year
Former Mayor and Councillor of the City of Oakleigh (amongst many other things), David has spent over 40 years involved with community service in the social justice and community cohesion department.

Special Olympics Victoria, Melbourne Southern Region – 2014 Community Group of the Year
It’s amazing to see such an active organisation who have several volunteers and committee members actively fundraising for such a worthy community. With a 26 year history, this organisation and all participants, staff and volunteers involved are an inspiration.
