August 9, 2012 Diamond Jubilee Dinner Meeting
The Australasia Section held a Diamond Jubilee dinner meeting on August 9 in Melbourne. This marked the 60th Anniversary of the Queen's Accession to the Throne. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the ADI Distinguished Fellow Award to Dr. Graham Mount AM.
Dr. Mount was instrumental in establishing the Australasian Section in 1988 and became its first Regent. He has since been considered as the "father" of the Section. The citation (read here) was read by Dr. Reg Hession following which Dr. Eddie Street made the presentation. The evening was complimented with beautiful music played by a string quartet provided by the Australian National Academy of Music; a training institution for Australia's finest young musicians preparing them for placement in orchestras and ensembles both in Australia and abroad.
The Section congratulates two Fellows; Dr. Edward R. Street, Regent and Dr. Ian B. Watson who were recipients of National Awards and included in the Australia Day and Queen's Birthday Honours list. Both Fellows were appointed Members of the Order of Australia.
The Section will continue in its work and endeavour to uphold the ideals embraced by the Academy of Dentistry International.
