Our Australia Day celebrations went very well with many parishioners sharing stories of their forebears from all over the world – UK, Europe, Africa, India, Asia, and the Americas. Who could have guessed?
Popular memorabilia were the many photos and Citizenship certificates proudly displayed together with a collection of “Australiana”, including Weetbix, Billy Tea, Aeroplane Jelly, historic Women’s Weekly magazines, Australian Poetry Collections, Sporting Equipment and even a pair of illuminated thong lights!
A highlight was the Indigenous Corner with an explanation of Indigenous Song-lines and Welcome to Country resources … as well as Margaret Coates’ mother’s historic Chinese Tea Pot.
Thanks for all those who donated their talents and precious memories for the display … watch this space for our next Celebratory Theme.
