What a week! Willyama had the great pleasure of being the major sponsors of the ACT NAIDOC week and what a week it was. he week started with the NAIDOC Ball on Saturday night, with Willyama giving the closing address and awarding the major award, NAIDOC Person of the year, with Julie Tongs CEO of Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health Service a well deserved recipient.
The ball was followed up by the NAIDOC Family Day on Sunday. The rest of the week was filled with mainly sporting events including Touch footy, golf and darts. The main formal event for the rest of the week was a reception hosted by the Governor General for the award winners and Willyama as the main sponsor.
William gave the Acknowledge of Country and was MC for the proceedings as he has been been working with the Governor General on a RAP for a number of years. His Excellency was Kieran’s Brigade Commander in 1993 and then Division Commander in the late 90’s so a little bit of ‘remember when’ was played. All in all a great week!
