We make learning fun!
It’s been 40 years since a group of motivated workers within the Traralgon region saw a need for a community house where people without extended family could meet. Their vision saw the Traralgon Community Drop in Centre commence on 21st November 1977.
On Tuesday 21st November 2017 we are celebrating an amazing 40 years serving our community and we would love you to join us at our Annual General Meeting.
This will also be an opportunity to say your farewell’s to Jenny Poon who has been our inspiring and colourful co-ordinator for close to 28 years.
Guest speaker Ronnie Burns will also talk about the amazing work Appin Hall has been doing in Tasmania and their move to Victoria.
It’s sure to be a great night, so come along to the VRI 18-20 Queens Parade, Traralgon on Tuesday 21st November at 5.30pm. AGM will start at 6pm followed by supper and plenty of time to chat.
See you then!
