At the March Community Meal, Friday March 1, 62 people came along to share a meal together. The room was buzzing with conversations as people made new friends and caught up with old ones. It is so lovely sharing a yummy meal, this time sausages, rissoles, salad and delicious potato bake followed by ice-cream with sprinkles. Background music played, provided by two very talented men playing flute, mouth organ and guitar. It was a delight to see some of the children up and dancing and playing twister together.
We were incredibly excited to have a few special guests John Myors and Hugh Hendry both local long standing Freemasons. Freemasons Foundation Victoria is contributing to a better Victoria through thoughtful and purposeful charitable support and community involvement. John presented Milpara Community House with a certificate to acknowledge Freemasons Foundation Victoria’s grant of $5,000 towards Emergency Food Relief. Hugh also presented Jenni of Milpara with a cheque of $500 from the local Freemasons group. It was fantastic to hear of the great work the Freemasons do.
It is heart-warming to belong to such a wonderful community. Why not join us for the next community meal on Friday April 5 at the Anglican Church Hall. This is a great opportunity, grab a friend or neighbour who often eats alone or needs a free social night out and bring them along. No bookings required just a good attitude.
