Two Retreats in November

A busy November coming up for Make a Difference with 2 retreats - a boys' retreat and a girls' retreat. 

As always thanks so much to the wonderful adults who volunteer to help out on these retreats.

First Reunion Day

We were delighted to host our first ever Reunion Day on Sunday 28 September.  

The Reunion Days involve a day trip for our young people and leaders to our Kangaroo Valley property.  Because it is just for a day we invite a larger group of people than for the weekend retreats.  The Reunion Days give adults and young people a chance to reconnect on a more frequent basis, and also gives boys and girls a chance to interact. 

The day wasn't without its challenges.  One carload of adults and young people broke down and get stuck in Bowral.   Much excitement!  A couple of other people got waylaid with airport problems.

But eventually everyone made it to the property, there was yummy food on offer, games to be played and everyone departed late in the afternoon tired but happy. 

 

Annual General Meetup and Annual Report

Great to see so many friendly faces at our Annual General Meetup on 21 October. 

Supporters, retreat leaders and Board Members came together to hear about progress we've made in the last 12 months and our plans for the future.
