Shake It Up Founder Clyde Campbell is taking up a role as Australia Day Ambassador, celebrating Australia Day.

Heading to Tooleybuc, Clyde will be presenting the Citizen of the year award. Attendees will enjoy breakfast from 7:30am, followed by the flag raising ceremony and presentation of the award. This is usually followed by the Annual Australia Day Duck race on the Murray River.

The Australia Day Ambassador Program is an initiative that sees high achieving and proud Australians attend local Australia Day celebrations across the nation. In cities, regional areas and in the country, Australia Day Ambassadors volunteer their time and energy to inspire pride and celebration in hundreds of local communities.

The theme for the 2016 Australia Day celebrations is ‘Australia Day – Everyone, Everywhere’ and acknowledges that Australia Day means different things to different people. It is a day that welcomes everyone to celebrate what we love about our country and create our own special moments.
