The Post Refurb Meet and Greet/Carers Week celebration was held here at the centre (7 Huxley St, Monto) on Thursday October 20th.
We had approximately 15 people attend who included a representative from North Burnett Regional Council (David Wiskar), Rod Hutcheon (Excelcare CEO), Pam Whitley (Blue Care) and two representatives from PHaMs. All other guests were community members and volunteers of our Meals Delivery program.
In conjunction with Carers Qld, we provided a free morning tea and BBQ lunch from 10:30am to 1:30pm. It was a relaxed positive environment that was shared by all to celebrate both the centre and Carers Week. To offer acknowledgement and appreciation to carers and to meet the team employed at the centre. Those who hadn't had a chance to visit the centre post refurb were given a tour of our facilities.
The day was well received with those who attended impressed with the post refurb look of the centre and its functionality. Some comments made were that it was nice and open and much more spacious.
