WA World Games Athletes Celebrate Independence Day

On Wednesday, July 1, Consul General Cynthia A. Griffin had the pleasure of hosting a reception in the Reveley Room at the Perth Arena to celebrate the 239th Anniversary of the Independence of the United States of America.

During her speech, the CG welcomed members of the Australian Special Olympics delegation who will be competing at the World Games in Los Angeles at the end of July. The Special Olympics was formed in the U.S. in the 1950s with the aim to foster acceptance and inclusion of all people. These values are embodied through the American Disability Act, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The CG concluded with a toast to the Queen and people of Australia.
