NATIONAL Reconciliation Week runs from May 27 to June 3 and is an opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and histories, to share that knowledge and help us grow as a nation.
The theme for 2018 is “Don’t Keep History A Mystery: Learn. Share. Grow” which explores history hidden just beneath the surface, ready and waiting to be uncovered.
The occasion will be commemorated in Scone on Monday May 28 at 10am with a Raise the Flag ceremony hosted by Upper Hunter Shire Council.
The event will be held in the forecourt of Council’s Administration Centre on 135 Liverpool Street and will be followed by a morning tea.
Local accomplished didgeridoo player, Richie Lawton, will perform at the ceremony.
Mayor Wayne Bedggood said council was seeking to build stronger and more inclusive relationships with indigenous members of the community and a better understanding of indigenous culture and history.
Everyone is welcome to attend. For catering purposes please RSVP to 6540 1153.
