Who's your hero?
SOMETIMES we say "she (or he) deserves a medal". Now there's a chance to make sure someone you know who makes the world a better place, gets the recognition they deserve.
Lismore City Council is calling for nominations for its 2013 Australia Day awards, to be named after Lismore's good Samaritan Darcy Goodwin, who fed the poor for free for many years until his death earlier this year.
The categories are: Citizen of the Year; Aboriginal Citizen of the Year; Young Citizen of the Year; Art/Cultural; Sustainable Environment Services in Community (individual and group) Sportsperson (junior and senior) and Sports (team, group and organisation).
It's a chance for our unsung heroes to be recognised with a bit of pomp and ceremony and get a well-earned, public pat on the back. Nominations close on December 20.
An application form can be downlaoded from www.lismore.nsw.gov.au - go to the Council News page.
Winners will be announced at an Australia Day ceremony.
