Welcome to Australia!

July 31, 2015

Amid all the financial fulminations and other wearisome Council debates, it’s always a delight to be a participant in the ceremony which welcomes new Chums(and some not-so-new arrivals) to our shores.

This week’s citizenship ceremony in the old Unley Town Hall was no exception. The speeches of welcome were mercifully short and it was not long before the large assembly was mingling and munching.

And just how multicultural was it?

There were migrants from all corners of the globe…from South Africa, Nepal, Europe, South America, China, India…and a whole clan of McLeods from ????

And it wasn’t just a certificate that was handed out. All participants received a $400 portrait voucher from the David Haddy Gallery, free Royal Show tickets from the RAHS, free entry to the Unley Swimming Centre, and gifts for the children.
