The Shire held a citizenship ceremony at Australind Chamber on Tuesday, 17 March.
Shire president Paul Gillett said it was fantastic to welcome 18 new citizens to the Shire of Harvey as they bring new cultures and diversity to the region.
“It is great to be welcoming new families to live and work in the region. We hope they feel at home in this great place to live,” he said.
“Given the current circumstances we find ourselves in, it was nice to have a positive event take place as this is a massive milestone in these people’s lives and it is important that we acknowledge that.
“A big thank you to Dennis Jetta for attending the ceremony and conducting the Welcome to Country.”
