The Shire hosted the annual Australia Day Breakfast at the Mt Marshall Swimming Pool on Thursday 26th January. The morning was one of the biggest yet with just over 100 people in attendance. It was a fantastic morning enjoyed by all. A huge thank you to the Bencubbin and Districts Lions Club cooked the breakfast for the community. The Lions Club raised just over $300 in donations on the day to contribute towards community projects.
In the evening, the annual Australia Day Barbeque was held at the Beacon Community Hall. The event was also very well attended with over 50 people turning up. A great night was had by all. Thank you to Mrs Megan Beagley for organising the catering and the volunteers on the night who cooked the barbeque and assisted with the setting up and cleaning up.
