Christmas is coming and for people who access Milpara Community House, we’re preparing for our shutdown for the school term holidays. This means usual operations of the House cease and only the Centrelink Agency operates throughout this time.
Access to the Emergency Foodbank at the House is also limited during this time to the Centrelink opening hours so it is very important to start preparing ahead of time.
Due to the public holidays, Centrelink will not be open on Christmas Day (25/12/2018), Boxing Day (26/12/2018), Thursday (27/12/2018) and New Year’s Day (1/1/2019). If people need to report, lodge documents, or make enquiries etc, arrangements need to made ahead of time so as not be caught out.
St Vincent de Paul is currently taking details for the distribution of Christmas Hampers and/or Christmas gifts donated to the Rotary Club Wishing Tree. This distribution will take place at Milpara Community House on Saturday 22 December 2018. For further details please contact the St Vincent de Paul store in Korumburra to make arrangements.
Our first program for 2019 is now available on our website www.milparacommunityhouse.org.au . If there are courses or classes of interest to you, give us a call (you may need to leave a message), send an email or enrol on line. The House will be functioning fully again from Tuesday 29 January 2019 so we’ll follow up with enquiries from that date. We apologise for any inconvenience however the staff are all on well-deserved rest time.
Thank you for the support Milpara has received from the Korumburra community during the past twelve months. It has been an exciting year and we look forward to the challenges and achievements to come in 2019.
On behalf of us all here at the House, have a safe and happy Christmas.
