This Day in History: 2013-06-02

During Reconciliation Week, Earth Mother Day was held in the Toodyay Showgrounds, an initiative of community citizens, Pamela and Karl Walsh. The event featured games, entertainment, a smoking ceremony and a free barbecue and afternoon tea. Elders instructed anyone interested in traditional tool making. A blow-up large sphere of the Earth was an attraction. Sponsors included the Shire of Toodyay and the Mental Illness Fellowship of WA. Following a Welcome to Country, Shire President Kevin Hogg opened the event. Robert Miles was MC.
