We spent Australia Day with my parents and family. This was a very special day this year because my Dad won Citizen of the Year. He is obviously very popular in Kimba because the turn out of people was the most there had ever been at the celebrations, even though the day was going to be a scorcher with 43C (109.4F).
Charlie is a generous, hardworking 'quiet achiever' who is innovative and thoroughly deserving of this award. His experience in restoration has been a huge asset to the many people and Clubs he has worked with. He has contributed countless hours to the community in many different areas including: Past President and current member of Kimba and Gawler Ranges Historical Museum, Kimba Show Society, Kimba Yesteryear Machinery Club and Kimba Pony club.
Cutting the Australia Day Cake.
The other award winners pictured with my Dad. The lady seated on the walker is
Corey Enright's Grandmother. Corey won an award too, but sadly couldn't be there to accept because of commitments to his AFL club. For those that don't know, Corey is a very influentual player for the Geelong (Cats) Football Club in the Australian Football League. Most of the Kimba district barrack for Geelong now.

Sorry I have been a bit quiet on here lately as I have not been feeling the best. Time for a visit to the doctor for an overhaul, that is happening Monday.
