Gerard receives award

This year we were so proud to attend the Australia Day ceremony to celebrate the presentation of the Shire of Mundaring Citizenship Award for a person older than 60 years or older for 2012 to our Gerard Van Didden.  Well done Gerard and much deserved.  Gerard was nominated by the brigade and coincidentally also nominated by the Mundaring and Hills Historical Society.
