International Women’s Day, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women in the community. Forbes Shire Council will host this celebration with a champagne breakfast at Lions Park on Sunday 8 March.
“We will be joined once again by some of our ‘legendary local ladies’, telling their unique and wonderful stories,” says Forbes Shire Mayor Phyllis Miller OAM. “Start the day balanced after a mindfulness meditation session and feel nourished with a gourmet breakfast on offer including hot and cold options.
“You will be able to spice up your morning by visiting our ‘Make Your Own Mimosa Bar’ complete with juice, fresh fruit and more!”
This year’s theme is ‘Each for Equal’ which encourages women to challenge the stereotypes, fight bias and broaden perceptions, because equality is essential for economies and communities to survive.
The morning starts with a mindfulness session at 6.30am. Bring your own mat or towel and stay on for the breakfast, entertainment and guest speakers. The ticket includes a delicious breakfast, a hot drink and a glass of sparkling wine. Tickets are $10 and available through 123tix.com.au.
Additional glasses of sparkling wine will be available for a gold coin donation, with all proceeds to be donated to Breast Cancer Support.
