Joy seeks support from businesses for Harmony Day

UNLESS you've been walking around Yeppoon blindfolded for decades, you will have encountered volunteer extraordinaire, Harmony Working Group Coordinator and Radio Nag presenter Joy Davison-Lee.
Joy is involved in everything worth doing on the Capricorn Coast and she is now seeking tangible support for the Harmony Day celebrations of our diversity and respect for different cultures.
While Harmony day is held in late March each year, Joy needs your personal and/or organisational endorsement of the Pledge by the 20 November, in time for your organisations name to be included on the Harmony Day plaque that expresses what we stand for.
The Pledge reads:
"We, the people of the Capricorn Coast, stand together for Harmony Day 2016.
We believe that a unified community is essential for peace, happiness and prosperity.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners: the Darumbal Nation and respect the spiritual significance they accord to the land.
We acknowledge the South Sea and Pacific Islander communities as part of our history and their contribution to our future.
We acknowledge the people from all nations who now call Central Queensland home.
Everyone is welcome.
Our community is inclusive, respectful and fosters a sense of belonging and connectedness.
We embrace and celebrate unity in diversity, we endeavour to reject prejudice and to support the freedom of religious and personal expression.
Through mutual understanding, respect and acceptance, we become the creators of harmony. In unity, we strive to better our community, our country, and our world."
If your organisation would like to endorse the Harmony Day Pledge and have your organisation etched on to the metal plaque or even if you would just like further information, please contact Joy before 20 November on: 4939 3238s or 0423 234 842.
