Rain fails to dampen NADOIC in Mareeba

Tablelands Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

WET weather didn’t stop the com­mu­nity from at­tend­ing the Mareeba PCYC NAIDOC com­mu­nity event on Tues­day.

Dancers, stalls, mu­sic and free flu shots were in abun­dance for those that at­tended with a free sausage siz­zle, fruit and water bot­tles be­ing given away.

The high­light of the day was the var­i­ous groups of kids and adults per­form­ing dances.

Mareeba PCYC branch man­ager sergeant Mary-Anne West said it is was a great day and it was fan­tas­tic that the dancers had the con­fi­dence to get up in front of a crowd of peo­ple.

“It’s was truly an amaz­ing day,” she said.

“A big thank you to the school teach­ers, prin­ci­pals and school sup­port staff that at­tended to­day to help the kids get ready and to make sure they came on their holidays.”
