Shire sees orange

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

MUN­DAR­ING Shire is hop­ing to see orange on Wed­nes­day, with shops and busi­nesses urged to em­brace the colour of Har­mony Day in dif­fer­ent ways.

Orange- themed win­dow dis­plays and staff adorned in am­ber are among the ideas sug­gested by the Shire, along with the sale of tra­di­tional foods.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Jonathan Throssell said the Shire would mark the na­tional event by show­cas­ing the spirit of in­clu­sive­ness within the lo­cal govern­ment com­mu­nity.

“Our cel­e­bra­tions are to re- mind the com­mu­nity why our com­mit­ment to cul­tural diver­sity is one of our great­est as­sets and that we are stronger be­cause of it,” Mr Throssell said.

“We are en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal busi­nesses to be in­no­va­tive about how they can cel­e­brate with us and the lo­cal com­mu­nity."

Send pho­to­graphs of Har­mony Day cel­e­bra­tions to the Shire Face­book page via Karen White at CEF@ mun­dar­ing. wa. gov. au.

Har­mony Day co­in­cides with the United Na­tions’ In­ter­na­tional Day for the elim­i­na­tion of racial dis­crim­i­na­tion.
