Celebrating Seniors Month
COOLUM Meals on Wheels invited their clients and other guests to join them in celebrating Seniors Month 2023 at the Annual Garden High Tea on October 17. The theme of Seniors Month in 2023 was ‘Social Connections’ and this event was all about encouraging clients to meet each other and to spend an afternoon together. The kitchen team volunteers led by Chef Troy and Apprentice Noah prepared a delicious spread along with a choice of liquid refreshments.
Coolum Meals on Wheels would like to acknowledge the support of COTA (the Council of the Aging) for the grant they awarded us to help fund this event. Their support is much appreciated and enabled us to put on a wonderful afternoon tea.
The Member of State Parliament for Ninderry Dan Purdie joined the celebrations and took the opportunity to present Coolum Meals myself and Service Coordinator, Gerard Rollo, with a cheque for $23,900 for a grant recently awarded under the State Social Enterprise Growth Grants Round two.
Thank you to all who support Meals On Wheels, and we can always use more volunteers. If you would like to donate your time please contact us on 5446 1000.
