National Reconciliation Week Flag-Raising Ceremony
Cardinia Shire Council invites the community to a Flag-Raising Ceremony on Monday 29 May to commemorate National Reconciliation Week in 2023.
The event will include a Welcome to Country, raising of the Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Australian flags, speeches by guests and Cardinia Shire Mayor, Councillor Tammy Radford. Following the event, guests are invited to afternoon tea and a range of fun activities for children and families.
“This event provides an opportunity to bring Cardinia Shire residents together to build stronger relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members,” said Councillor Radford.
“Reconciliation is an ongoing journey that reminds us that while generations of Australians have fought hard for meaningful change, future gains are likely to take just as much, if not more effort.”
Date: Monday 29 May
Time: 11.00am – 12.30pm
Location: Cardinia Shire Council Offices, Bunurong Country (Officer)
Everyone is welcome. There will be light refreshments provided by a well-known Aboriginal caterer.
