It gives me great pleasure to join with you and provide this message for the annual Multicultural Eid Festival & Fair (MEFF) 2018.
I commend the commitment and dedication of the organising committee and volunteers, who put on this major event every year in our local community, for all of us to enjoy.
MEFF continues to grow and spread the word of peace and social harmony, whilst at the same time combining fun and family entertainment to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
The Festival also provides an opportunity for all Australians to join with those of the Islamic faith to celebrate the diversity and vibrance of our culture and traditions, showcasing the benefits of our multiculturalism.
The Australian MEFF Consortium is to be congratulated on its excellent community reputation, which comes from the great work of a dedicated team, who work tirelessly to encourage social inclusion throughout our local community.
As the Federal Member for Fowler, I am honoured to represent one of the most multicultural communities in Australia, which boasts diverse culture, friendships and the ability to live in harmony.
I look forward to attending the festivities and take this opportunity to wish all Australian Muslims a peaceful and prosperous Eid al-Fitr.
