Australia Day Celebration in Boston 

The American Australian Association, New England celebrated Australia Day in Boston, with an evening of sumptuous food, fine wine, lively entertainment and friendly company.
 
Fox25 News Anchor/Reporter Sara Underwood, the evening’s bubbly Master of Ceremonies, taunted attendees by comparing the current Boston temperature, 13 degrees Fahrenheit, with temperatures in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
 
A rousing set was performed by the entertaining Harvard Krokodiloes, known to Australian audiences from their regular tours Down Under.
 
A highlight of the evening was the speeches by past and present Fellows of the American Australian Association’s Education Fund, which the event was in aid of. Dr Vikram Khurana spoke of the early support he received from the Association when he first came to Boston from Australia and he described how it impacted the trajectory of his successful research career.
 
2013 Education Fellows Sindy Cole and Michael Power spoke of their projects at Boston College and the Harvard Kennedy School respectively and how they are using the funds provided to them to further their research.
 
Guests at the dinner enjoyed a four course meal, including organic grass-fed lamb and beef specially imported from Australia by Swift; and an elegant take on the Australia’s favourite dessert, the pavlova. Each course was paired with Eden Road Wines provided by The Fine Wine Agency.
