Chair of the Benalla Rural City Australia Day Advisory Committee Cr Barbara Alexander AO announced the winners of the Benalla Rural City Australia Day Awards.

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

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

Cr Alexander also encouraged nominations for the 2017 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.”
