Community News August 2019

Suzanna Barry - Friday, August 09, 2019

Our August newsletter has landed, and as you can probably guess there's plenty of Johnno's Run news. We are so proud of our community that has really got behind Johnno's Run. It is such an inclusive event, raises important awareness and continues to raise significant funds to help build homes for people with disability. Thanks again for the widespread support of Johnno's Run 2019.

We are currently preparing our Annual Report, and hope that you will be able to join us for our Annual General Meeting which will be held on Thursday 10 October 2019 at 7.30pm at the Echuca Workers. This is a very significant year for us, as it is our 40 year celebration.

Kind regards

Suzanna Barry
