Bayside Council will announce its 2020 Citizen of the Year as part of an official Australia Day ceremony on Sunday 26 January.
This Award recognises three outstanding people — a Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year and Sportsperson of the Year — who have made an exceptional contribution to our community.
The scenic Depena Reserve in Dolls Point will once again provide the backdrop for Bayside Council’s official Australia Day ceremony that will include a Welcome to Country.
There will also be a Citizenship Ceremony to welcome our newest citizens and an opportunity to hear from our Australia Day Ambassador and Rugby League legend Peter Wynn.
After the official proceedings there will be a performance by Diramu Aboriginal Dance and a didgeridoo player, as well as a sausage sizzle by local Scouts.
