Happy Australia Day to all you Aussies out there!!
For the non Aussies January 26th is Celebrated as our National Day. It's the Anniversary of the First Fleets arrival in 1788 and the raising of the British Flag at Sydney Cove.
It's a public holiday here with lots of celebrations all around the country. Sydney Harbour will be busy with all the pleasure boats out for the day and the Annual Ferry Boat Race is run. Manly beach will be packed as they hold a huge surf carnival with teams from all over joining in. Mostly its a great day for families to get together for a fun day.
I hope however you celebrate you have a safe and happy day.
Interested in the history ? check out the details here.
This next paragraph is for Australian Card Makers too.
I read on Splitcoast Stampers a request from an Australian card maker for any information about organisations or groups sending cards to the Australian Troups serving overseas.
I contacted Shirley and asked if she could let me know if she found anything as I'd been looking for something . I've received information from her about this group and thought I might pass it on as I'm sure there will be others who would be interested too. Here is the link to the web page Shirley found. http://careboxesfromhome.weebly.com/ I don't know this group and pass on the information in good faith. I think it is something you would need to check for yourselves.
Have a great day, till next time..........
