Howell’s that

At the Cambooya Australia Day Awards ceremony, Sara-Jane Howell of Wyreema was awarded Citizen of the Year.


Sara-Jane Howell, pictured with Ben Howell, is the proud 2022 Citizen of the Year.

Sara-Jane Howell is a passionate and dedicated volunteer who has made a significant contribution to the Wyreema and district community over the past decade. 

She has served as secretary of the Wyreema Community Hall for the past eight years. 

In this role, Sara-Jane started the Wyreema Hall Halloween Trick or Treating Event, a fun and inclusive annual event that is recognised locally for building community spirit and connections. 

As secretary of the Hall, she has also volunteered countless hours organising many other events, including trivia nights, social nights, market days, movie night and family fun days.

Dedicated to helping others in need, Sara-Jane raised $1,000 for homeless people in the Toowoomba Region through her participation in the 2021 Sleepout for Homeless. 

She regularly supports the Toowoomba Regional Council with events across the district, including the Wyreema Obst Park opening and Summer Tunes. 

She is also a part of the Australia Day Committee for the Cambooya District. 

An inspirational and tireless volunteer, Sara-Jane is recognised as a compassionate and valued member of the community. 

Sara-Jane was one of a few well-deserved nominations for Cambooya Citizen of the Year.

Unlike most of the winners in the Toowoomba Region, Sara-Jane was able to be recognised in front of the public as COVID-19 concerns forced most celebrations behind closed doors.

Brendan Bernier from Cambooya was the ambassador.
