CURRAJONG Disability Services Condobolin recently had the pleasure of attending morning tea at Western Plains Regional Development Centre on Wednesday May 31 to help celebrate and commemorate Reconciliation Week.
Reconciliation Week gives the community a chance to come together to celebrate with Aboriginal members of the community, Wiradjuri people of Condobolin and surrounding areas, to help build stronger relationships and help understand their culture, form friendships and to acknowledge the importance of that culture and history especially over the past 50 years.
Others in attendance on the day included Yawarra Aboriginal Disabilities, Condobolin High School students, CenterCare, CareWest and members of the community.
An enjoyable day was had by CDS clients from all reports who found the event to be informative and educational.
“It’s a big day on the national calendar and we were glad to be a part of it,” said Debbie Hamilton of CDS in Condobolin.
“It means a lot to all of us at CDS to be able to participate in such a significant event.
“We value our community relationships and days like today give you an appreciation of how strong the bonds within our country town are.”
