10 tellers told to nearly 500 children and their parents on Monday 11 March in Commonwealth Park. This was a huge day for Canberrans as we celebrated our 100th birthday. Each teller told a short story from a different decade in the last 100 years. Our listeners heard tales about things such as the Yarralumlah brick works, the feeling in Canberra the year the Raiders won the cup, experiences of post WW11 immigrants and about some of our illustrious citizens. Each child had a passport which was stamped as they went from teller to teller. Feedback from several happy parents was that this was the best event of the day. It certainly kept many, many children entertained and was an extremely safisfying experience for the tellers. Thank you to ACT Government for giving us a grant so that we could be part of this special day.
