Nhill Karen community set to celebrate


Nhill community is busy preparing for annual Karen New Year celebrations on January 6.
This year the town will celebrate the 2757 year on the Karen calendar, which started in 739BC when the Karen people migrated to Burma.
Celebrations will be at Nhill Memorial Community Centre from 10am until 1pm where a program will include cultural performances, such as the traditional done dance, bamboo dance and a performance depicting the history of the Karen people. Nhill’s Karen community will provide lunch for attendees.
Hindmarsh Shire Council will also use the occasion to launch its Karen Community Plan 2017-2021 before sporting competitions including volleyball, soccer and the traditional Karen sport of cane ball start at Davis Park at 2pm.
