Not all Australia Day functions were washed out. A Citizenship Ceremony hosted by the Moreton Bay Lions Club went ahead as planned.
Around ninety people were in attendance to become Australian citizens. Chairman John Wearne introduced the presiding officer, Mr Ross Vasta MP representing the Federal Government, with Mr Neil Symes MP (State Gov) and Mr Peter Cumming (BCC) also present.
The afternoon went off without a hitch and concluded with a light afternoon tea. The Moreton Bay Lions have been holding this event for 14 years on every Australia Day.
