Australia Day ceremony at Mundulla | PHOTOS

Despite an overcast sky, residents throughout the Tatiara flocked to the Mundulla Sport and Recreation Ground to celebrate Australia Day.

The day began with the traditional breakfast and music by Jim Irvine.

Official proceedings commenced at 9.15am, with Tatiara's Australia Day Ambassador professor Peter Langridge giving an incredibly insightful address.

Tatiara District Council Mayor Graham Excell then presented the awards to the day's many recipients.

Clarry Martin was named Tatiara Citizen of the Year, Lachlan Johnson was named Tatiara Young Citizen of the Year, the Bordertown Golf Club received the Tatiara Community Event of the Year, and the Award for Active Citizenship went to the Tatiara Multicultural Group.

Mayor Excell also presented the first ever Highly Commended Mayoral Award.

The award went to Jose Plasabas, Reagan Koch, Soana Hull, Kaster Podiotan and Katherene Flaviano for responding to a medical emergency in the fabrication room at JBS Bordertown.

When a team member collapsed and went into cardiac arrest, the group provided CPR and defibrillation for over 20 minutes while waiting for an ambulance - their help saved a life.

The final part of the ceremony saw 10 people become Australian citizens through a ceremony conducted by Mayor Excell.
