Cr Alexander said Benalla Rural City has many amazing community members who give up their time selflessly to make our region a better place to live.

The Australia Day Awards are just one way of recognising these wonderful people but it’s a way for us to thank them for their commitment and dedication to helping others.” She said. “Our community could not achieve what it does without their outstanding efforts.”

Cr Alexander also encouraged nominations for the 2015 Australia Day Awards.

“We know there are many others that also contribute to the wellbeing of our community, but they are not always given deserved recognition,” she said. “I urge people to nominate those they believe are worthy of recognition for future awards.”
