Locals celebrating a special birthday or wedding anniversary can receive a personal letter of congratulations from the Mayor.
Upon request, the Mayor will send a message of congratulations to residents within the Griffith Local Government Area turning 90 years of age or 100 years of age.
The Mayor also sends messages to couples celebrating 50 years of marriage and every 10 years thereafter.
Griffith Mayor, Councillor John Dal Broi said, he is pleased to announce that Council will be offering this service to help residents celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions.
“Our people make Griffith a great place to live, work and raise a family, and these important moments are worth celebrating,” Cr Dal Broi said.
“I consider it a great honour to be able to help recognise these occasions.
“We are proud of our residents and our business community. I hope everyone takes the opportunity to request a message to help mark their special milestone.”
To arrange a message from the Mayor, head to Council’s website www.griffith.nsw.gov.au
You will need to provide supporting documentation such as a birth certificate or marriage certificate. If these documents are not available, you can provide a statutory declaration (available at any post office or Griffith City Council customer service).
Supporting documentation can be attached online or emailed to [email protected] Supporting documentation in original form such as birth and marriage certificates must be hand delivered and will be copied for you.
The Mayor’s messages are sent via Australia Post and will be dispatched to the nominated recipient (or care-of address for surprises) within 10 working days of receipt of the request. You can also request a belated message up to one month after the birthday or wedding anniversary has passed.
