Community Engagement Celebratory Events Citizenship Ceremonies Barkly Regional Council held two citizenship ceremonies in 2018-2019, with five Barkly region residents becoming Australian citizens in front of elected members, family, friends and colleagues. Theres no better day to become an Aussie than on Australia Day as a new member of the community will attest. Mollen (Molly) Tendai Chivhoko (pictured) was welcomed to the town at an official Citizenship Ceremony up at Battery Hill Mining Centre. Molly was born in the city of Masvingo in Zimbabwe. Five years ago, Molly moved to Australia to join her husband Ephraim who was working at the Alice Springs Hospital. In 2018, she joined the Northern Territory Government as a Child Protection Practitioner with Territory Families but due to staff shortages in Tennant Creek, she volunteered to move up here in November 2018 in the same role. Molly says she loves Tennant Creek and enjoys living here because it is such a small, multicultural town and easy to raise children. Those who took pledge on 24 July 2018 were Mr Brian Curran, Mr Mark Keyworth, Mr Renjith Kollakkombil Jose, and Mr Derek (Junchao) Zhu. 42 2018 - 2019 Annual Report
