ActewAGL, Principal Partner of the Centenary of Canberra, invites Canberrans to join in raising a toast for Canberra’s birthday at a free barbecue outside the ActewAGL Assist store on City Walk in Civic from 11.00am to 1.30pm on Tuesday 12 March 2013.
The Canberra Day Toast barbecue event will kick-off with a live screening of the Foundation Stones ceremony at Parliament House, in which the ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher will raise a glass and toast Canberra.
ActewAGL Director Marketing and Corporate Affairs Paul Walshe said, “As Principal Partner of the Centenary of Canberra we’re pleased to put on this event, which is the ideal way for our community to raise a glass in unison to celebrate Canberra’s 100th birthday as a city.
“Local sporting celebrities will also attend the barbecue to celebrate with the community.”
Canberra residents who share their birthday with the city are also encouraged to come along to the barbecue to celebrate the special day, following a Centenary of Canberra campaign to find as many locals as possible born on 12 March.
