A Word from Sally
What a busy year it has been, I cannot believe that the year is coming to an end so soon! Our annual AGM is nearly upon us, if you are interested in how the centre is run please come along. If you do come along, you can try out our new chairs, purchased with the volunteers’ grant we received from the Department of Social Services, Strengthening Communities Program. Many thanks to all that assisted with this, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
It is that time of year again and our yearly Christmas Party will be held again on Thursday December 15th starting at 10 am. We will be having our annual barbeque again, and probably a few raffles as well. So come along, and if you like bring one of your favourite salads or desserts to share. Hope to see you there.
There are also free hearing checks at East Creek on Tuesday the 8th of November. Australian Hearing are having a clinic at the centre from 12 pm until 3 pm. This involves a 20 minute hearing test, and information on your hearing health. To book in call the centre on 46392755, a good chance to check up before the holidays.
With Christmas coming we are again having our annual break. The centre will be closed from Thursday December 22nd until Monday January the 16th and will be reopen for normal sessions from Monday January the 30th. The Chat & Do Group will keep running over the break on Mondays from 10am until 12 pm. For this group you just bring along whatever craft work, art work, or activity you like and enjoy a chat at the same time. We are looking at doing certain activities on some dates, so for more information call the centre on 46392755.
I would just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very safe and happy festive season. Please travel safely, and if you are having trouble coping during this time you can call Lifeline on their 24 hour Crisis line on 13 11 14. If your life is in danger or it is an emergency call 000.
