The event is to formally acknowledge the Golden Plains Shire Council (GPSC) Community Awards 2020 nominees, announce the award-winners and welcome new citizens to the Golden Plains community.
The event will also include a special screening of Zoom Me A River, a short film produced by artists from across Golden Plains that reflects on the local experience of COVID-19 social isolation. You can read more about the film here.
