Could this have been the best CLA party yet?!!

Report on our Carers’ Lunch 2018 – our annual event held in carers week to recognise our carers – the unsung heroes in our community – an event to relax, make friends & enjoy the entertainment.

 
The Morning Star Estate ballroom was buzzing with chatter and song. Chris McConechy even got the crowd marching around the room playing his washboard – what a great atmosphere!
 
The scrumptious 2-course meal prepared by Blue Mini Cafe was served by the lovely VCAL hospitality students from Peninsula Specialist College. This was their first experience working in hospitality outside of the College and what an outstanding job serving our meals with such great smiles 😃😃😃
 
The beautiful voices of Bernadette Maher and the Beleura Choir supported by Vaughan Wilson filled our hearts with song and brought out our best singing voices. Special thanks for Russell Joseph, candidate for Nepean, for his fabulous MC’ing.
 
Thanks to a clever raffle system set up by our patron Judy Barrett the many winners in the raffle walked home with prizes they had set their heart on. Many thanks to her and her daughter Christine for donating and decorating the gorgeous Morning Star Estate ballroom.
 
The icing on the cake on the day was a very generous cheque of $5,500 for our housing projects received from Paul Nitas CEO of Hillview Quarry.
 
All-in-all a wonderful event to remember! We would LOVE to keep organising more events to bring together our community and join our voices. Can you help at an event or know someone who could please get in touch!
 
Also, YOUR membership is highly appreciated to make the much needed work we are doing possible. For more information please go to www.communitylifestyleaccommodation.org.au and sign up today for only $10 p/y.
