WHAT a great day it was last Saturday when the Leeton Community Care and Development Corporation along with representatives from NAIDOC Week, Ngumbaay Leeton, Leeton Local Aboriginal Land Council, Parkview Public School, Leeton Lions Club, Leeton police and the Leeton Shire Council gathered for another special event.
Held at Gossamer Park in Wattle Hill, the eighth pop up shop was held with over 80 children in attendance also.
Parkview school cooked the barbecue, which "was wonderful' shall we say.
It was a beautiful day for the weather as well to make it even better.
Thank you for everyone who came along to help on the day. The smiles on the kids' faces is fantastic to see.
There was face painting, shirt tie dying, Lions train, nail polish decorating, charcoal and pastel drawings were organized, bus pick up and delivery home, food and drinks and a huge chocolate cake to celebrate NAIDOC Week.
The next Pop up shop will be held on November 28 and the Christmas party will be held on December 19, which should be exciting as I have heard there will be a water slide there.
Some more exciting news, our food van is expected to arrive early December.
Cannot wait to see it and can't wait to show the wonderful Leeton business people who have donated funds towards it as well and to thank them personally.
One thing I like mentioning is the Leeton Cannery Tea House.
Yes, it is a pleasant place to be, while just while browsing around in the shop and then sitting down to a nice hot coffee and slice or stay for lunch and a chat.
Coffee is $6 with a slice, meals $5 eat in or $6 takeaway.
