John Oxley Day V Halloween

Thursday 31st Oct marks the 190th anniversary of the discovery and naming of the Tweed River by John Oxley aboard the HM Cutter 'Mermaid'. This discovery must be recognised as the beginning of our history in what is one of the most beautiful valleys in Australia. Why is it then, that we celebrate Americas Halloween holiday instead of our own heritage. Our children are encouraged to dress up for trick or treat while the discovery of their own valley is ignored. I would like to know if I have any support amongst the community to put a proposal to Tweed Shire Council and the Tweed Historical Society to mark this date as a major celebration in the Tweed and designate the day as John Oxley Day, ( Discovery of the Tweed)
