THE City of Casey will today (Monday) celebrate its 20th Birthday in spectacular fashion.
The community will come together to celebrate the first two decades of Casey Council’s existence, with a number of social media campaigns launched for the special anniversary.
Mayor Mick Morland, a Casey stalwart, reflected on the municipality that has meant so much to many people over a number of years.
“As a long time Casey resident and active volunteer, I have been proud to serve the community as both Councillor and Mayor throughout the last 20 years, including on the inaugural Council elected in March 1997,” he said.
“This was an exciting time for Casey. We were a progressive Council and a growing city – and this growth has typified Casey’s first two decades.
“Meeting the needs of a growing community, and planning for the future means there are a lot of milestones to reflect on over Casey’s first 20 years, such as the opening of the Casey ARC and Casey RACE, when motorcycle champion Mick Doohan waved off the Cranbourne GP Run, the opening of Casey Fields and the Olympic Torch Relay which came to Casey.”
Cr Morland also said the City of Casey was the 8th fastest growing municipality in Australia.
Casey Council is urging the community to watch the ‘Casey is Happy’ music video and to share it on Facebook, while the celebrations can also be publicized on Instagram by searching ‘CityofCaseyCouncil’ and by using the hashtag ‘#Casey20’.
