Nominations are open for this year’s Campbelltown City Jubilee Awards.
The annual awards recognise individuals who have lived in Campbelltown City for 50 years or more, and for 30 years or more for members of our Aboriginal community.
Businesses and organisations that have served the city for 50 years or more are also welcome to nominate.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the awards were an opportunity to thank the city’s long-term residents and business people for their tremendous contribution to the community.
“Many of the Jubilee Awards past recipients have given their time to volunteer at their local churches and schools, some devoted their spare time to local children’s sport, while others have been active in community groups and service organisations,” he said.
“All of these contributions have helped to make our city the great place that it is today.
“Our long-term residents have also seen tremendous change.
“Recently, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of Campbelltown’s proclamation as a city and the electrification of the rail line.
“Nominees for this year’s Jubilee Awards witnessed those events.
“They have also seen our city grow from a population of 19,000 in 1968 to 170,000 today.
“It is fitting that we also acknowledge the place that these long-term residents have in our city’s history.”
Jubilee Award recipients will be recognised by the Mayor for their contribution and commitment to the City of Campbelltown during an event to be held on Wednesday 18 July.
All nominees and nominators will be invited to attend the ceremony.
Nomination will close on Monday 9 July.
The nomination form is available on Council’s website. It can be downloaded at JubileeAwards .
