Australia Day in Narrogin is set to be a big one, with a community breakfast, family fun day, citizenship ceremony and evening outdoor cinema. The day will kick off at 7:30am with a barbecue breakfast under the gum trees at the front of the John Higgins Community Centre, which is usually attended by over 250 people. “Australia Day is a day to reflect on our nation’s past — a history which began more than 65,000 years ago with the First Australians, the world’s oldest living culture,” Shire president Leigh Ballard said. “It is also a day on which we respect and share the stories, histories and contributions of everyday Australians, because we’re all part of the story of Australia”. The traditional free community breakfast will be followed by the presentation of the Citizen of the Year Awards, a citizenship ceremony, and entertainment by local performers. After breakfast, the day of family fun kicks off at 10am with free entry to Narrogin Regional Leisure Centre pool where everyone will be able to test their skills on the brand new giant inflatable Tarzan course. Between 10.30am and 1.30pm, the Freedom Fairies will be doing face painting, interactive art and crafts, music and games. The day’s activities will conclude at 7.30pm with a free outdoor family movie in the new grassed area at Narrogin Regional Leisure Centre. Cr Ballard said everyone was encouraged to take part.
