Centenary babies get their gong

By johnboy 7 June 2013 6


Chief Minister Gallagher has announced the presentation of medallions to the 21 Canberra babies born on the Centenary day:

Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher, has today congratulated 21 Canberra babies and their parents and presented them special centenary medallion to recognise that they were born on Canberra’s 100th birthday.

“In our centenary year we are recognising many Canberrans including those who have lived here for several decades and have seen our city grow. Today I am excited to acknowledge the babies who were born on Canberra’s birthday this year and those who will watch our city move into it’s second century,” the Chief Minister said.

The special medallions were produced to honour Canberrans in the Centenary year and the medallions have already been presented to Canberrans who are aged 99, 100 or older in January this year to celebrate the contribution these citizens have made to the city.

Looking at those babies one sees a lot more diversity than in Canberra’s political or media classes.
