The community is invited to attend the NAIDOC Community Day at Taree’s Fotheringham Park on Thursday, July 12. 

The day will get underway at 10.15am with a welcoming ceremony.

In coherence with this year’s theme “Because of her we can”, many Aboriginal women will have the opportunity to speak about their own experiences. 

Local dancers and singers will perform throughout the day.
