From the Mayor's Desk
Harmony Day is fast approaching. This is a particularly special event for me, as I was Minister for Multiculturalism when it was first introduced. Hornsby Shire Council has always made an effort to acknowledge this important day, and this year is no exception. From Harmony Day on March 21 to Neighbour Day on March 28, we will be celebrating diversity and strengthening community connections through a range of online events. There will be singing and dancing, cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts and much more. It’s a little disappointing that people can’t physically come together to celebrate, but it’s no disaster because every single day the tremendous contribution of multiculturalism in Australia is being recognised. Long ago it became a normal part of our society, which is a very good thing. We are an example to much of the world about how different cultures can live happily and harmoniously together, remembering where we came from at the same time that we work together to build something new. So make sure you tune in to watch these wonderful events and acknowledge the importance of multiculturalism.
