Three local residents were officially made Australian citizens in September.
At a special District Council of Mallala citizenship ceremony held on Thursday September 17, which coincided with national citizenship day, Suzette Rugolo, Mina Asadi and Masoud Saadati all pledged their allegiance to Australia.
Suzette, of Two Wells, has lived here for 49 years after immigrating from Britain, while Masoud, of Mallala, arrived from Iran nearly a decade ago.
Five years later Mina joined Masoud as his wife.
DCM mayor, Duncan Kennington, presented the trio with certificates and a native Australian seedling.
