NAIDOC Week runs between 6 and 12 July.

This year’s NAIDOC theme honours all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have fought in defence of Country. From our warriors in the Frontier Wars to our warriors who have served with honour and pride in Australia’s military conflicts and engagements across the globe. We proudly highlight and recognise the role they have played in shaping our identity and pause to reflect on their sacrifice. We celebrate and honour their priceless contribution to our nation.

Coolbaroo Club
March 3, 2011

 Coolbaroo Club

The City of Perth have been approached by some of the original members of the Coolbaroo Club to assist them in organising a re-union and  dance to celebrate the club.

Carol Winfield, from The City of Perth is keen to progress with this and has initially met with a small group of people, including;

Roma Loo, Albert and Irene McNamara, Doreen Nelson, Helen and Charlie Kickett, Barbara Kickett, Irma Woods, Rae Morrison, Michelle White.

From this Carol has sourced funding and has made a booking for the town hall for the first dance to celebrate Coolbaroo on June 4th of this year.

 All of the people at this first meeting are keen to progress with this dance but would like to send word around as far as possible to the aboriginal community to gauge interest and support for this event.

 Firstly they would like to know of anyone who would be interested in joining this committee to bring back the dance.

 They are also putting together a list of names of people who went to the dances at Coolbaroo Club to ensure they know about and are invited to this dance on June 4th.

They would also like to know of family members of people from Coolbaroo who may also want to be involved in this.

The next meeting of this group is on Thursday 3rd March at Medina Aboriginal Community Centre at 10:00, 13 Leasham Way Medina.

My role is in assisting this group in collating a list of names, so could you please forward this email around to your networks and ask people to send back details of interest to either:

Irma Woods

Doreen nelson

Barbara Kickett   0435410244

Charlie Kickett     0407428804  or 94193542

Or myself, Sherryl Coffey

Look forward to hearing with interest.
