Ozmas for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

The Annual Grandparents Xmas in July Lunch could not be possible with out the continued support of the many Rotarian volunteers and sponsors. A combined project for the Rotary Clubs of Moonah, Glenorchy and Claremont, and in its seventh year, it provides a wonderful day out for the many grandparents who care full time for their grandchildren. Often struggling themselves with financial and health difficulties, a day out where they are can enjoy companionship and laughter is a welcome event. The children are entertained by a variety of craft activities as well as Balloon Animals and Face Painting. This year lunch was provided by Roving Roast. Of course Xmas has to have a visit from Santa who, with a big ‘Ho Ho Ho’ gave all the children and grandparents toys and gifts. Thank you to Toy World for their ongoing support and to sponsors, Harris Scarfe, Moonah, Zone Ten Pin Bowling and Woody’s Skate and Play. A special thank you to our special guests, the Hon Elise Archer MP, Josh Willie MLC and his Executive Assistant Elle Coleman and Sandra Fagan, Executive Assistant, on behalf of Sue Hickey Liberal Member for Clark. A special acknowledgement to  Co-ordinator,  Glenyse Russell for her tireless efforts and John Ward, a constant support to Grandparents Raising Grandchildren. Everyone left with big smiles and full tummies looking forward to next year’s event.
