Colo Vale community association president Elyse White and vice president John Stead received an official Kangaroo March re-enactment plaque from organiser Angela Williamson during a presentation recently.
Angela Williamson said she offered her thanks to the community for its involvement in the march, despite the hot weather. “It’s a real thrill to recognise the commitment of communities,” she said. “The effort was sensational. On a 32 degree day, they turned it on.”
Ms Williamson said she was pleased with the level of interest and involvement from school-aged children, who waved flags during the Kangaroo March re-enactment. “The whole school [Colo Vale Public School] came to the march,” she said. “They were entranced, it was a lovely sight.”
Ms Williamson visited each town that participated in the Kangaroo March re-enactment to deliver a plaque. Visit http://kangaroomarch.org.au for more information about the Kangaroo March re-enactment.
