Nominations are now open for Hepburn Shire’s International Women’s Day Heather Mutimer Honour Roll.

International Women’s Day is celebrated across the world on 8 March each year. The purpose of the day is to recognise women and their achievements.

Mayor, Cr Tim Drylie, said that in 2005 the Heather Mutimer Honour Roll was established to pay tribute to women in the Hepburn Shire.

“Each year as part of International Women’s Day, successful inductees are announced and added to the Honour Roll. The roll provides a forum to acknowledge women who have made a difference in our Shire. By acknowledging these women, past and present, they become role models for generations to come,” said Cr Drylie.

Nominations can be made at https://www.hepburn.vic.gov.au/Residents/Support/Womens-Honour-Roll or community members wanting to nominate an individual can email bobrien@hepburn.vic.gov.au or call 03 5321 6439.

Nominations are open until Thursday 27 October at 2.00pm, and will be announced at an event on the 8 March.
