Congratulations Una!! Murchison & District Citizen of the Year 2018
A fun-filled morning was had by all at the recent Murchison Australia Day celebrations on January 26. About 400 people enjoyed a delicious breakfast, cooked to perfection by Murchison Lions Club and the S.E.S. with drinks provided by “Friends of Australia Day”. The crowd was enthralled by our guest speaker Sharman Stone who spoke about a variety of topics based around the theme of Australia is Great, Victoria is great, Murchison is great.
