Every year around Australia Day we hear about the Australian of the Year. It's usually someone pretty famous, known for performing some impressive feat. It's inspiring to see these people honoured with awards.
But what about our local heroes? Those everyday people who live among us, providing help and support, working to make this a better place to live, and quietly holding our communities together.
These people are truly worth their weight in gold. Most of the time they're volunteers, spending their time making their contributions in all sorts of ways.
Today's guest is Peter Baur, who was acknowledged for his work in Rotary with the Award for Outstanding Community Support.
The work that Peter and his Rotary colleagues do has helped so many people in the district, but it's also being felt and appreciated around the world. Here's Peter's story.
