On Tuesday Council hosted the biggest Australian Citizenship Ceremony yet in Parkes. Congratulations to all the new Aus- sies! My family and I became citizens just over three years ago on Melbourne Cup Day. It gives you a great sense of security and new meaning to be accepted into the lucky country and to be able to make a meaningful contribution to your new home.
We are starting up a Footy Tipping Competition if you would like to join in the fun! See details in Snippets on page 3.
Slow down this weekend and think of a moment that made you smile this week. I am grateful for my cats – they just melt my heart.
