More than 40 people attended the Armajun Aboriginal Health Service in Armidale on Thursday morning, but it had nothing to do with anything medical and everything to do with their NAIDOC Week morning tea.
Armajun program manager Deb Green said the day was fantastic.
"As the day gets on, we'll get more community members who will just wander in," she said.
"There will be an area left open so they can just come in and have a meal, and have a chat if other people are around.
"The whole week has been absolutely brilliant. We should be very, very proud of our community, and every service provider that has hosted an event over the last two weeks, it's just been amazing."
She said to see community, service providers and her community come together was also fantastic.
"Armajun is one of the leading Aboriginal health services in this region," Deb said.
"We don't buy into politics, because we know our communities are so diverse, and everybody has their own thoughts and ideals. But this is something that we embrace.
"We need to acknowledge that there was a past, but now we have a brighter future and that we're part of a big circle contributing towards a better united front; a better Australia.
