Be part of making Australia Day celebrations in Orange

By August 30, 2018 News

Australia Day in Orange is one of the highlights of the social calendar and Council is looking for energetic people to come on board and make Orange’s festivities the best.

The Orange City Council Australia Day committee plans and runs the celebrations in Cook Park and it has several openings.

Orange Mayor Reg Kidd said the openings on the committee were a wonderful opportunity for people to come on board with fresh ideas.

“It’s always good to look at how we do things and consider new ideas,” Cr Kidd said.

“It’s a great opportunity to develop skills such as project management and event management, as well as corporate meeting skills and organisational skills.

“It’s also a great chance to give back to the community in a really fun and engaging way.”

Committee Chair Katherine Tollner said the committee had several openings to fill but the most recent departure of a long serving committee member would be strongly felt.

“Ann Hailes has been on the committee for 22 years,” Mrs Tollner said.

“22 years of enthusiastic service and dedication to making Orange’s Australia Day celebrations inclusive and a great family day out.

“Ann was a strong advocate for the day and a wonderful contributor to the team.

“I’d like to thank her on behalf of the committee and of Orange for all she has done.

“She will be truly missed on the committee.”

The committee meets monthly on a Wednesday evening throughout the second half of the year.
