Kwinana Honours Community Heroes on Australia Day

Kwinana Honours Community HeroesOur mortgage brokers love working with home loans in Kwinana because it reminds us of an era when people were nicer and had more respect for each other. Sometimes, living in our area is like walking back in time that’s different to the life in a large city.

Now, the respect we are talking about will be on public display during the Australia Day celebrations.

The Community Awards

The City of Kwinana provides 6 awards for local citizens every year, called the “Community Awards.” The adult categories consist of the following: the Kwinana Volunteer of the Year Award, the Kwinana Art, Culture and Entertainment Award, the Kwinana Sportsperson of the Year Award and the Kwinana Leadership Award. Junior Awards include the Kwinana Young Person Art, Culture and Entertainment Award and the Kwinana Junior Sportsperson of the Year Award.

Carol Adams, Mayor of Kwinana, encourages citizens to participate and nominate worthy people, as she feels that “recognition is just as important as the main prize.” Anyone who is nominated for a Community Award is eligible for more recognition: nomination for the Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Awards.

Nominations are Still Open

While time is growing short, you still have until Friday 29 November, 2013 to submit nominations. Those who wish to nominate someone can find nomination forms at the Administration Building of the City of Kwinana or they can visit the City of Kwinana website: http://www.kwinana.wa.gov.au/awards.

Participation is Encouraged

On behalf of Smartline Mortgage Brokers Rockingham, we would like to encourage everyone in Kwinana to participate and honour deserving fellow citizens. Kwinana is a close-knit, family-friendly city and one of the friendliest places we know of. We know that a lot of people there are worthy of nomination for various honours and we would like to see as many of them as possible to be recognised.

One of the best “perks” of living in a smaller city or town is that you are able to participate in community activities and government much more effectively than in a larger city. You have a larger “voice” in a small community and you have a greater opportunity to make a difference.

Make a difference and make your voice heard by nominating worthy candidates for Community Awards. Call (08) 9527 1800 to learn more about Kwinana and how you can get a home loan to be able to reside in the city.
