CITY of Kwinana is urging residents who have lived in the area for more than 40 consecutive years to register for the Pioneers Database.

Those who register will be kept up to date about upcoming functions to honour Kwinana’s longest-term community members.

Mayor Carol Adams said the City would plan to acknowledge and celebrate residents who have contributed to the Kwinana community over a long period of time.

“This is an opportunity to reminisce, celebrate, make new friends and hear some fascinating stories along the way,” Cr Adams said.

“Our City has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a Shire built to support local industry, and Kwinana’s long-term residents have been here to witness this transformation.

“We might be the second-fastest growing local government area in WA, but our rich community spirit and tight-knit feel remains.”

As part of the registration, residents would need to provide their best memory of Kwinana.

Registration forms can be found at http://www.kwinana.wa.gov.au.
