Official Statement of Support
National Day of Thanks 2019
As individuals, as communities and as a nation, we have so many reasons to be thankful for the lives we lead. Australia is a peaceful place, caring and prosperous place to live and there is much to look forward to in the future.
On this day, the National Day of Thanks, we take a moment to reflect and give thanks to those whose endeavours contribute to our well-being. This year we think of those who from Mayors and Councillors to waste disposal workers and gardeners, who dedicate themselves to the responsibilities and duties of Local Government. We also pay tribute to the Chaplains across the nation who offer support in time of crisis.
The National Day of Thanks is a unique day to think and thank those who make our lives special, on behalf of all Australians I say thank you.
