Narelle here. On Saturday 25 May, Australians will have the opportunity to thank those who make a difference in their communities.
The National Day of Thanksgiving gives Australians an opportunity to celebrate and give thanks for our God given heritage as a nation, and to thank one another for the contributions each makes in our communities.
It is a Christian based initiative, endorsed by Government and supported by numerous community groups, that provides the Church in Australia with the opportunity to give leadership in drawing local communities together to celebrate those values that bind us together as a nation.
People to Honour and Thank in 2013:
Solicitors, barristers, judges and court officials.
Police and administrative staff.
Young people under 30 showing leadership by example through acts of community service and leadership in local community and church organisations.
For the Aussies reading this post, who will you be thanking on Saturday? Are you involved in any National Day of Thanksgiving activities?
