Australia Day Thank You’s!

Big thanks for everyone who participated in the Australia Day event in Grassy last Friday. Despite a bit of a breeze, the day was still a lot of fun.

Many thanks to Tasports for their support and guidance around utilising the Grassy Harbour, likewise the KI Boat Club for ‘hosting’ and adjusting on the day due to weather. Also thanks to Jenny and Russell for trying damn hard with their kites, (have to be next time), our wonderful MC Heath, our ambassador Christina Henri, all the food providers who feed and watered the punters, the Rick Munday band, all the Colour Run volunteers, Paula for managing sign on’s for the Colour Run, the pack up crew of Frenchie and Kayla and the depot team, including Sally for transporting gear back and forth.

Thanks also go to the organising team of Susan, Ira and Ernie, with big efforts by Wade and Ian.

Finally, congratulations to our 2024 King Island Citizen of the Year, Linda Payne and Community Event of the year, the King Island RSL sub branch, and welcome to our newest Australian Citizen, William.
