Community Development Committee – Dec. 2010

2011 Australia Day Boolarra Community Celebration

To celebrate our National Day, and the wonderful spirit in our lovely town the Development Group has developed a tradition of having an Australia Day Breakfast in the Park, which has gone from strength to strength.
From 8.30 am until 10.00 am in Railway Park we will be providing Egg and Bacon sandwiches and snags, tea and coffee and some drinks for the kids. We’ll raise the flag, sing the anthem, have some fun activities for all the family and generally have a good time!
There will also be the opportunity to review action items identified for the Community Building Initiative on election day.

Commence breakfasts 8.30 am
Commence activities: 9.00 am

  • Hopscotch
  • Skipping
  • Quoits
  • Sack Races
  • Gumboot throwing
  • Talking to the friends you haven’t seen since …
  • Australiana trivia
    Flag raising 9.40 am
    Present certificates 9.50 am
    National anthem 10.00 am

One of the great features of our celebration has been the opportunity to recognise some of the unsung heroes of our town; the volunteers who do so much in so many spheres to make our town the rich, vibrant community it is.
The Development Group is once again seeking nominations from individuals, community groups and clubs of people or groups you believe deserve recognition for their contribution to our community. If you wish to nominate someone then please fill out the attached nomination form and drop it in at the Post Office.
If you’re free to give a hand on the day, please give me a call. It’s a great way to meet people if you’re new to the community.
