The annual Seddon CC Multicultural Day is on Sunday 27 January. As a bonus, the following day is the Australia Day public holiday.
Seddon CC Multicultural Day event is a celebration of the cultural diversity at our club, and within the local community in general, while also celebrating the invaluable contribution of club members of all nationalities and backgrounds. Since we staged the first Multicultural Day event six years ago the event has grown and become an integral part of our social calendar.
We have an action packed day planned including three teams (two sides from outside the club) competing in the T20 cricket competition for the Seddon CC Multicultural Day Cup, lamb & chicken gyros' for lunch, 'Foods of the World' for dinner, official presentations after T20 cricket tournament and a band finishing off a big day at the club.
For the kids we have games inside the rooms and also a wading pool for the kids (and adults) to cool down throughout the day.
This year the T20 cricket competition will once again be very competitive, with the title holders - SK Lankans - coming back to defend their title and the Victoria Police Cricket Club entering the competition. The Seddon CC side will be captained by our Scottish import Chris Sole.
Note: The Seddon CC side still requires players to complete the squad - please let Leigh Davies or Josh Beaumont (Coach) know of your availability ASAP.
See below for more information on Seddon CC Multicultural Day:

Once again we will be cooking lamb and chicken gyros' for lunch, marinated and cooked on the spit for hours and served under marquees on the oval. Lunch will be served around 12pm-1pm.
As with every year we have held the Multicultural Day event at the clubrooms, the 'Foods of the World' dinner will be supplied by club members and volunteers and will no doubt be a highlight of the days festivities. Dinner will be served after the official T20 cricket tournament presentations around 8pm and will include dishes from all parts of the world.
If you would like to contribute a dinner dish, please advise Leigh Davies ASAP (as you/we can never have enough food!).
This year we have a surprise in store with a new band to rock and roll the clubrooms after everyone has enjoyed the 'Foods of the World' dinner. Stay tuned for more details in the next week.
Multicultural Day is a great event on the Seddon CC social calendar. Please feel free to spread the word and bring family and friends along. We urge everyone to get along and support the club to make this another memorable day.
See you there!
