COMMUNITY RECOGNITION STATEMENT - Maitland Tattoo
Ms JENNY AITCHISON (Maitland)—I rise today to acknowledge another successful Maitland Tattoo event put on by the City of Maitland Pipes and Drums. There was a range of different entertainment, including the performance of the classic song Danny Boy, Irish dancers and Indian dancers as well.
I proudly attended another one of these successful events where over 250 people showed up to Maitland Town Hall on Saturday the 31st of August. Lots of time and effort was put into organising this special event and I wish to thank especially the secretary, Greg Queenan, who was one of the event key organisers.
I also thank all those performers for showcasing the talent of the local community. Many audience members, like myself, also dressed in tartan clothing in honour of this event. Many of the audience members bought raffle tickets with proceeds going towards providing equipment to put on more of such events.
Congratulations Maitland Pipes and Drums. I look forward to your continued creation of multicultural events throughout the next decade and am very excited for next year’s Christmas in July themed event.
