Michelle Rowland MP, Member for Greenway, has held her annual ‘Welcoming the Babies’ Ceremony on 24 August 2017, to welcome new babies into the local community.
Almost 100 babies aged from just a few weeks up to two years old were welcomed into the community at the Stanhope Gardens Leisure Centre by Local Federal Member, Michelle Rowland MP, and Mayor of Blacktown, Stephen Bali.
Families received a ‘Welcoming the Babies’ certificate and a shrub to plant in their home gardens.
“‘Welcoming the Babies’ brings together our area’s young families to celebrate the joy new family members bring,” Michelle Rowland said,
“We have a young electorate in Greenway and it is wonderful to have young mothers and fathers, siblings and grandparents all coming together to welcome the babies,” Ms Rowland said.
“The ‘Welcoming the Babies’ ceremony is a true reflection of our welcoming and diverse community in Greenway,” Ms Rowland said.
