Xmas in July for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

Xmas In JUly2015Ho Ho Ho! Xmas came early for many special grandparents at the Elwick Showgrounds last Sunday. Our club joined with Claremont and Glenorchy Rotary clubs to host the annual Xmas in July lunch for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren in recognition for the huge commitment they are undertaking.A wonderful lunch with all the trimmings was provided to the 111 guests by Claremont Rotary and the staff at Glenview. The Glenorchy Club provided children’s entertainment with ¬†face painting and balloon sculptures while a DJ had everyone moving. Of course it wouldn’t be Xmas without Santa who, despite the gale force winds, arrived safely courtesy of the Glenorchy Fire Brigade. Gifts were given out and each family went home with gift bags and happy smiles. Many thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers. A special thanks to Glenyse for her tireless efforts and the wrapping of 91 gifts!
