Goonellabah Summer Party
December 6, 2019 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
The annual YWCA Communities for Children Summer Party is on again in Goonellabah on Friday 6 December. It’s a fun, family-friendly event which encourages the local community to celebrate the year and forge new connections, particularly between the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities.
This great event is organised by Amelia (Aunty Mim) Bolt from YWCA Australia’s Communities for Children. All community members can attend, there is no need to buy tickets or register.
“It’s such a great annual event for the community. Last year, there were 600 people enjoying activities including a horizontal bungee, water slides, petting zoo, a fire truck, Aboriginal dancers and a free BBQ,” says Aunty Mim.
This year, the party will be opened by Lismore City Council’s Mayor, Cr Isaac Smith. Aunty Dorrie Gordon will be providing the Welcome to Country.
Louise Collins, YWCA’s Regional Manager for Northern NSW says “The response is always very positive. One person said last year: “There was a genuine vibe there. Love went into organising this event and it was felt and noticed.”
“With local communities currently being impacted so significantly by these dreadful fires, it will be nice to come together on a happy note at the end of the year,” says Ms Collins.
