A Word from Sally
Wow, 2017 is coming to an end and a new year will soon be upon us. We will be closing the centre for our annual staff break, the last day will be December 21st and we will reopen on Monday January 15th. Please refer to the “What’s On” timetable on page two for finishing and starting dates of our social and support groups.
We will once again be running our Chat and Do over the break, so that people can still come along and do some craft, play a game or simply have a chat to someone. This group runs every Monday from 10 am until 12 pm. All are welcome, you can bring along a little morning tea to share if you please. For more information on this please contact the centre on 46392755.
We are having our annual Christmas party on Thursday 14th December, everyone is welcome and TOMNET will be doing the BBQ once again. Everyone is welcome and there will be a $2 fee for the BBQ which will go to TOMNET. You are welcome to bring a plate of dessert or salad to share on the day and there will be raffles and entertainment.
Our Annual General Meeting is on Friday the 3rd of November at 2pm everyone is welcome. We will be voting in a new committee and discussing what ECCC has done over the year. Refreshments will be served after the meeting.
We had a very successful Adult Learners Day in September. Lots of people had the chance to try different crafts and activities including crochet and knitting, paper crafts, Spanish and even some virtual reality goggles. If you would like to have a go with the virtual reality goggles contact the centre and book in a time.
