More than 650 Campbelltown residents will be presented with their Australian citizenship during 7 ceremonies held throughout August.

Sixty seven countries of origin are represented among the residents receiving their citizenship.

Mayor George Greiss presented the first of the ceremonies at the Cambelltown Civic Hall on Saturday.

“The day you receive your citizenship is among the most important in the lives of many people so I’m very proud that we are able to present so many people with their citizenship over the next few weeks,” Cr Greiss said.

“The process of getting citizenship requires a great deal of effort and commitment so it really is a special moment when you finally receive the certificate,” he said.

“Thank you to all the residents who joined us at our first ceremonies over the weekend and I look forward to meeting more of our new citizens over the coming weeks.”

A further three ceremonies will be held on Saturday 27 August and a final ceremony on Monday 29 August.
