President's Message

Commonwealth Day 2020


Thank you for making Commonwealth Day a great success. We had over 250 guests join us for the celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations - a celebration we have been holding for over 30 years.


Our guests enjoyed our presenter Kate McClymont AM and the presence of our Patron Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC QC Governor of NSW who presented Her Majesty's message.


Her Majesty's message is available:


The Tom Harvey award was presented to Michael Bonnici and the Pat Keill Award OAM to Philippa  Higgins for their outstanding contribution to the community.
