CASS Moon Festival Celebration

Thursday, 17 October 2019

Speaker, the Chinese community recently celebrated their Moon Festival, and I had the pleasure of attending the Chinese Australian Services Society's Social Support Group Moon Festival Celebration.

The celebration of the moon festival is about bringing people together and giving thanks.
