Korumburra looking beautifully Orange.

Korumburra goes Orange.

We’re sure that people will have noticed our orange flower garden that has popped up just past the Korumburra RSL Hall.  Orange is the colour designated by the UN Secretary-General’s UniTE to End Violence against Women campaign.  As a bright and optimistic colour the flowers represent our wish for our community bloom without violence, put your hand up and let’s change the story together.
