Australia Day in ROMSEY 2013 (COMMUNITY GROUPS)

Dear All

The celebration of Australia Day in Romsey has had uncertainty associated with it in recent years. This is despite Macedon Ranges Shire Council making $500 funding available to support any group(s) wanting to organise a relevant community event.

Although it is a tricky time of the year with many people on holidays, many towns organise an opportunity for community members to come together for a short while and celebrate the national day. This can be as simple as a community breakfast over an hour or two or a program of innovative activities.

First Romsey Scouts are keen to maintain the important tradition of a flag raising ceremony in our town on Australia Day.

I am writing to enquire who might be available and interested in helping to pull something together to facilitate this. It is difficult for groups as a whole to often commit to an event at this time, but just a few individuals could organise something simple for the day/morning to accompany a flag raising ceremony.

Please let me know ASAP if you are interested in facilitating an Australia Day celebration for Romsey.

Meanwhile, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Kind regards,
Jenny Stillman (ph. 0412 349849)
