Grow­ing with com­mu­nity

Midland Reporter - - Look Local -

MORE than 100 ba­bies, along with their ex­tended fam­i­lies at­tended the 29th an­nual Commemorative Plant­ing Cer­e­mony for new ba­bies born in City of Kala­munda.

Mayor An­drew Wad­dell said the an­nual cer­e­mony was held each win­ter in late July and a won­der­ful way to cel­e­brate the birth of a new­born com­mu­nity mem­ber.

“Fam­i­lies were in­vited to take part in the com­mu­nity plant­ing to help reveg­e­tate and beau­tify their lo­cal park with their child, which they can visit,” he said.

“Staff had a de­light­ful time meet­ing all the ba­bies and ev­ery­one seemed to thor­oughly en­joy get­ting out in na­ture and meet­ing other fam­i­lies.”
