June 6, 2007

A Citizenship Ceremony was held at the beginning of the Gwydir Shire Council meeting, held last Thursday in Bingara. Michelle Bowrey was presented with her certificate by Mayor Mark Coulton, having been asked a number of humorous questions relating to the Australian language.

Michelle who came came here 6 and a half years ago,addressed the gathering, saying how proud she was to become an Australian citizen. 

Making reference to the Oz Experience buses that regularly brought “foreigners” to our town, Michelle said “For some people the big green bus never left town.” 

Michelle’s partner Jason Sullivan and their children, Tianna and Jayden joined with the gathering to applaud Michelle’s receipt of citizenship.
