Mayor urges community to send a message of support

Members of the Wagga Wagga community can send messages of support to the victims of the recent attacks across the world, with a condolence book available at Customer Service in the Civic Centre.

Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Rod Kendall offered his support to all countries affected by recent attacks on behalf of the Wagga community.

“Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by these recent acts of terrorism in France, Lebanon and across the world,” he said.

“We offer our condolences to the families and friends of all victims of terrorism, including the hundreds of victims who have died this month alone.

“We would like to offer our condolences to any citizens of those countries currently living in the Riverina.”

In response to the weekend’s attacks in France, the colours of the French flag will also glow from inside the Civic Theatre and will be visible from the upper foyer windows tonight and tomorrow night.

“Along with lights at the Civic Theatre, I encourage all residents to take a moment and observe the current digital projection on display each night on the lagoon side of the Civic Centre,” he said.

“With recent events fresh in our minds, internationally acclaimed artist Craig Walsh’s work Harmony is a poignant reminder of the universal harmony that every community strives for.”

At the Extraordinary Council Meeting on Monday 16 November, Council also formally recognised the victims of recent attacks with a condolence motion and observed a minutes’ silence.

Wagga Wagga City Council will send on the condolence book to the effected countries’ embassies at the end of November.
