GALLERY: Lake Mac community celebrates in style


The annual Lake Mac Awards is always a highlight on the region’s social calendar.

And, it was no different last Saturday night at the Belmont 16s when the community gathered for a gala ceremony to acknowledge individuals and groups for their tireless service, talent and dedication.

Stunning fashions were the order of the evening, too, with the men looking sharp while the women simply dazzled.

Disability services advocate Jonathon Power took out 2021 Lake Mac Ambassador, with NSW SES representative Christine Speer named Volunteer of the Year and Jasmine Seidel Young Citizen of the Year.

  • Here’s a selection of photos from the night.
