Colac Otway to welcome five new citizens on Australian Citizenship Day  Printer Friendly

Colac Otway Shire Council will welcome five new citizens at a special ceremony on Australian Citizenship Day next Monday.

Frank Di Lecce and Warren Powell from the USA, Fidel and Francheska Licayan from the Philippines and Hiu Yung Wong from China will join family and friends for a citizenship ceremony at the Colac Community Library and Learning Centre at 3pm.

Mayor Stephen Hart will officiate the ceremony. Cr Hart said Australian Citizenship Day was an opportunity to celebrate the role that new citizens played in our community, and in shaping the future of our country.

“This special day celebrates an important step in each new citizen’s life, and represents their ongoing commitment to Australia and everything we stand for as a nation,” Cr Hart said

“It is an important day where we take the time to welcome new citizens to our country and to our local community.”

About 4000 people became Australian citizens last year at more than 120 ceremonies around the country. Since the first citizenship ceremony was held in 1949, more than four million people have chosen to become Australian citizens.
