Celebrating our Volunteers

Celebrating our Volunteers

Thursday, May 08, 2014

The first of a series of lunches for volunteers and community groups was held at Everybody’s Theatre in Opunake yesterday by the Council’s Community Development Unit.

STDC community and economic development manager, Claire Symes, says that all volunteer and community groups in South Taranaki are invited to the lunches.

“It’s an opportunity for volunteers and groups to share their experiences, tell us what their plans are for the future and let us know how we can help,” says Claire. “Most importantly it’s an opportunity to network and celebrate the contribution of volunteering in our community.”

The lunches run from 12 noon until 2pm at the following locations:

Patea: Friday 23 May, Patea Old Folks Hall

Eltham: Wednesday 28 May, Eltham Fire Station, London St

Waverley: Friday 30 May, Waverley Community Centre
