National Day of Thanks 2019

If you missed it - it was a corker. 2019 National Day of Thanks celebrated in the Yarra Ranges at Foothills Reception Centre in Mooroolbark.

Yarra Ranges Mayor, Cr Tony Stevenson welcomed attendees and spoke movingly about the importance of those who live concerned for others.

Guest Speaker - Dr Scott Ayton - from the Florey Institute spoke about the importance of "hope" in research as in life - and that hope-filled lives be shaped by a love for the other rather than self-gain.

A musical afternoon in a good cause!

It'll be a terrific afternoon! Patience features rapturous maidens, handsome and moody poets, a platoon of enthusiastic British Dragoon Guards, and the local milkmaid who throws a wrench in it all! Satirical comedy, witty lyrics and sumptuous costumes. A great way to spend an afternoon in Mooroolbark!!
