Nominations are now open for the 2019 McPherson Community Awards, which celebrate the outstanding contributions residents make to our local community.
Federal Member for McPherson, Karen Andrews, says the awards highlight the invaluable support volunteers give to local organisations and clubs.
“Australians are renowned for their dedicated service to a wide variety of community groups, events, and local activities, and the southern Gold Coast is no exception,” Mrs Andrews said.
“The tireless dedication of our volunteers makes such a big difference to so many people and community organisations.”
“If you know someone who you believe is deserving of this recognition I encourage you to nominate them for a McPherson Community Achiever Award.”
There are three categories open for nomination:
- McPherson Community Achiever
- Surf Lifesaving Community Achiever
- Young Community Achiever (under 25 years of age)
The awards are great recognition for the many ‘unsung’ heroes of our community who give years of service to their chosen club or organisation.
“It always makes me feel so proud to represent people like this in our nation’s Parliament. Each year I look forward to seeing the new nominations and discovering even more great southern Gold Coast stories,” Mrs Andrews said.
Nomination forms are available by contacting Mrs Andrews office on 5580 9111 or at www.karenandrewsmp.com.au
Nominations close on the 15th February 2019 and nominees must live in the McPherson electorate. Award recipients will be recognised at a special morning tea.
