Residents are invited to join a night of celebration at the Burdekin Australia Day Awards Evening on 25 January from 7.30pm at the Burdekin Theatre.
Burdekin Shire Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said tickets for the event were now on sale and could be purchased online, at the Theatre or at the Council Chambers.
“For the small charge of $3 you get entry to the Shire’s Australia Day Award celebrations, supper and see some great local entertainment,” she said.
“The awards will feature the Burdekin Brass Band, Air Force Cadets, Burdekin Singers and Theatre Company, Rhythm Edge Dance Studio and Sophie Ricca will perform the national anthem.
“This event provides residents a chance to see their peers rewarded for their efforts and also to welcome some new Australians to our community.
“Judging has been completed and I look forward to presenting the winners with their awards on the night.
“Join me in celebrating being an Aussie and have a cracker of a night at the Theatre!”
