Diversity in the Clarence celebrated on Harmony Day

PAUL Comerford was lying in bed Friday night, thinking the Harmony Day celebrations would either be a roaring success, or a complete flop.

Mr Comerford had nothing to worry about, with more than 300 people turning up at the Harwood Hotel for the event on Saturday, March 19.

"It was a really good turnout, I was very happy with that," he said.

"The whole day was really good, it was great to see a nice little country town getting together and celebrating harmony.

"It was a great team effort to get the day organised, we had a really good committee, where everyone jumped in and had a big go."

Mr Comerford said it was a fantastic effort from everyone involved who donated their time and services for the day.

"I spoke to a few music contacts who said they'd be happy to donate their time, and then a few Lower Clarence schools got behind it, and before we knew it we had a lot of people involved," he said.

Getting all these people involved and a part of the day was a real feel good thing."
