Your Community News Week 4

The dads were on duty at the Mothers Day Breakfast

It was wonderful to see the ATC community once again embrace the Mothers’ Day Breakfast, with Mums, Grandma’s and carers enjoying breakfast prepared by our willing army of volunteers. Thank you to all involved in helping with the catering, organising, set up and serving.

In particular to Danielle for her help and guidance with the catering and food prep, Wayne Green and the team for set up and dismantling, Andrea McAvoy for her enormous help in online setup and organising the Raffle and to the many dads and boys who got in and helped on the day. Most importantly, thank you to our mums who gathered for what was a lovely way to celebrate what they do each day to make our lives the better for it.
