It was a lovely celebration in the Shire Chambers on Friday 2nd November 2018 when local resident Bhimrao Thavare became an Australian Citizen in front of more than 15 family and friends.
Bhimrao, originally from India, proudly recited a pledge and was presented with a certificate by Shire President Cr Rhonda Cole to commemorate his citizenship.
Cr Rhonda Cole also presented Bhimrao with a copy of “Seedtime & Harvest” and congratulated him on becoming a new Australian citizen to the Narembeen community.
Australian citizenship is a bond that units us all. Australia respects the diverse cultural inheritance of its citizens, and we are honoured that you have chosen to become an Australian citizen today said Cr Rhonda Cole.
Bhimrao, his family and close friends enjoyed afternoon tea following the ceremony.
