BGCLS held it's official opening last Friday (February 1). Our Chairperson, Scott Sherritt, welcomed guests along and outlined the vision for our service and the many ways in which we can assist the community. This was followed by an official Welcome to Country from proud Wadawurrung Traditional Owner, Bonnie Chew and a traditional Smoking Ceremony. Guests were invited to immerse themselves in the smoke as it billowed into the new building (which definitely worked as the smoke detectors proved to guests with ear piercing precision). A light lunch and opportunity to tour the building rounded the formal proceedings.
Thank you to Bonnie for her kind words; all who attended on the day; and, the Ballarat Times for their media support of our official opening.
