Arrangements are being made for a memorable day which will be held in the covered area and grounds of St Joseph’s School in Coree St, starting with breakfast at 8am.
Former Tocumwal resident Don Elgin has agreed to make an appearance at the 2013 event.

Don is pleased to be involved in the 2013 Australia Day celebrations as MC and guest speaker.
This will be an ideal opportunity for him to catch up with his family and many friends from the past.
All schools in the Shire have shown great enthusiasm and preparedness to participate in the program, which is open to all.
The committee invites all children in the Shire to participate in the following competitions: Decorated Bike Competition; Write a short story or poem on the theme of ‘Why I like living in Australia’; Produce an Australian Flag using any medium e.g. paint, collage etc; A painting with an Australian theme; and a photo with an Australian theme.
