National Volunteers’ Week Breakfast

On Monday 8 May, some members of GSGD attended the National Volunteers Week Breakfast held at the Gladstone Entertainment and Convention Centre. The event was hosted by Gladstone Regional Council, and was to thank volunteers throughout the Gladstone Region for their time spent in helping organisations.

There were 84 organisations represented at the breakfast, which was a tasty buffet of bacon, eggs, muffins and fruit.

Each organisation’s name was called, and members went to the stage to receive their certificates and a group photograph was taken with Mayor, Matt Burnett. Local councillors were also present and came to the table to thank everyone personally.

Here is the photograph taken of our members who attended. Certificates were collected for all members who volunteer at our Society. Please collect yours at the desk in our Resource Centre. Thanks to all who volunteer for our Society. It is much appreciated.
