In a heart warming celebration on 26 January, retiree Christine Adams was awarded Citizen of the Year, for her outstanding dedication to the City of Tea Tree Gully community. Managing the Billabong Road Little Library, contributing to the Compassion Cafe, and actively fostering diversity, Christine exemplifies the power of one person to make a positive impact.

In a significant achievement, TADSA (Technology for Ageing & Disability SA) clinched the title of Community Group of the Year at this year's Australia Day Awards.

For an astounding 45 years, TADSA's dedicated volunteers have been breaking barriers by designing custom assistive technology, providing crucial support to over 350 individuals annually. Despite facing financial challenges, the organisation's unwavering commitment to fostering independence shines through.

Rounding out the celebration for the day was the City of Tea Tree Gully’s Citizenship ceremony.

Around 100 people registered to become new Australian citizens today. From over 20 different countries and ageing from 79 years to just 18 months.

South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas was on hand to welcome the new citizens to the City of Tea Tree Gully and Australia more broadly.
