CHERYL Gaedtke has been involved in community groups in the Somerset for well over 20 years and on Monday was recognised as the regions Citizen of the Year.

Since 1987, the fourth generation Kilcoy resident has been involved in various community groups including the Mt Kilcoy P&C Association, Kilcoy- Woodford Junior Rugby League Club, Kilcoy
Hammers Softball Club, Kilcoy Police Liaison Committee, Kilcoy Chamber of Commerce and Community, Kilcoy Toastmasters, Somerset Community Support Association and the Kilcoy and Community Bank.

Her length of involvement in each group has varied from 12 months to six years except for her involvement as a member of the Endurance Riders Association which has spanned a decade. Mrs Gaedtke said the award was a great honour and one she did not expect to receive.

“It is hard work, but is worth it through the people you meet and this award is the pinnacle,” she said. She added that volunteering also had its own awards.

Mrs Gaedtke was nominated for her “significant contribution and passion for the Kilcoy and surrounding communities”.

Her nominee said her vision for a stronger Kilcoy is infectious. Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann congratulated Mrs Gaedtke on being awarded Citizen of the Year.

Festivies at the Somerset Civic Centre on Monday also included the induction of 15 new Australian citizens.
They joined the Somerset community from New Zealand, Philippines, India, South Africa, Vietnam, United Kingdom, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka. 200 residents attended the
free buffet breakfast followed by the combined Australia Day Awards presentation and citizenship ceremony.
