Uncle Glenn followed up speaking about the vision for the Gathering Place. Presented Aunty Zeta and Uncle Shane with special scarves that were personally made and 3KND Chairperson, Grant Hansen with the G-Man was presented with a special designed Message Stick
Finally, everyone relaxed, enjoyed the company of local mob, yarned, and explored the Wominjeka Garden. Viewed the current exhibition in the Gallery Space and Lunch by the Bunjil Catering was delicious.
