Forbes Shire Council is hosting a buffet breakfast on Wednesday March 8 –from 7.30am to 9.30am at Lions Park.

Forbes will celebrate International Women’s Day with a Buffet Breakfast on the Lake.

International Women’s Day is held annually to celebrate the achievements of women and to strive for gender equality.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BeBoldForChange. The theme encourages all of us to do all we can to accelerate gender parity.

Forbes’ breakfast celebrations will be held on the beautiful Lake Forbes foreshore and will feature entertainment from talented young local Maddi Collits.

There will also be talks from a McGrath Foundation breast cancer nurse Dianne Green and the Forbes Business Chamber’s Marg Duggan.

“Our women contribute so much to every aspect of life from business to volunteering and everything in between,” Mayor Graeme Miller said.

“It’s fantastic to have a day where we can pause and acknowledge that contribution.”

The day will also raise funds for two important causes in the McGrath Foundation – supporting women with breast cancer – and the Forbes Widows Support Group.

Raffles will be held and donation tins available.

Menu options include bacon, eggs, fruit, yoghurt, muesli and pancakes. Tea and coffee will also be available.

The breakfast is at the Lions Park from 7.30am on Wednesday, March 8. For catering purposes bookings are essential.

Tickets are available from Forbes Shire Council’s administration office until close of business Monday, March 6.
