We all need a little something positive to look forward to at the moment, and what better way than celebrating those who work tirelessly to give back to our community.
Each year, Frankton City Council acknowledges the achievements and contributions made by members of our community as part of the Frankston City Australia Day Citizen of the Year Awards. Council CEO Phil Cantillon said that while this year had been difficult for many, it had also brought out the best in our people and had truly highlighted the amazing community spirit we have in Frankston.
“We all know those unsung heroes who are always putting others first, (so) this year let’s make sure they are rewarded and thanked for their efforts,” Mr Cantillon said. “Whether it’s fundraising for bushfire-affected communities, adapting existing services to support our community during a pandemic, creative ideas helping give a boost during lockdown, or any number of ongoing projects, community groups, community events or activities which bring our community together, we have a wealth of admirable people who deserve to be recognised.”
Nomination categories include Citizen of the Year, Young Citizen of the Year, Senior Citizen of the Year and Community Event of the Year. You can nominate a person or event on the council’s website and either email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post it to Councillors Office, Frankston City Council, PO Box 490 Frankston 3199.
Nominations close at 5pm on Friday, October 30, and the winners will be announced at the council’s Australia Day awards ceremony next year.
