Lismore NAIDOC Celebrations 2012, planned for Heritage Park for this Thursday 9 August, have once again been postponed.
Lismore City Council’s community development officer Lee-Ann Emzin said the recent passing of a treasured Elder from Cabbage Tree Island meant that Thursday’s scheduled date was no longer appropriate.
‘As a mark of respect to the Aboriginal community, Council have made the decision to postpone the NAIDOC celebrations for another two weeks to Thursday 23 August,’ Ms Emzin said.
The celebrations will now be held on Thursday 23 August, from 10am to 2pm at Heritage Park.
