Red Cross Boolarra Unit – Dec. 2010

Our AGM was held at the Multi-Purpose Building on Monday, 5th July 2010, and we were happy to welcome friends from the other Units in Region 9 – Warragul, Erica/Rawson, Morwell and Traralgon. Soup and sandwiches were enjoyed by all before the formalities began.

The guest speaker was Helene Hayes, who gave us an update on the conditions in Haiti. It will be many years of hard work to get this country back on its feet – the devastation caused by the earthquake and the lack of basic infrastructure present huge challenges for the Aid Agencies who are working tirelessly to help those in desperate need.

The following Office Bearers were elected for 2010/2011:

  • Chairperson                Gladys Hall
  • Assistant Chair            Sue Warren
  • Secretary                    Gay Henry
  • Treasurer                    Glenys Morgan
  • Unit Representative    Gladys Hall

Stanis Alexander presented Nat Roy with her 3rd Bar – signifying 40 years of service to Red Cross. Not present, but also congratulated were Gladys Hall and Inge Bissell, who have both achieved 30 years of service – Well done, ladies!

On 11th October 2010 we held a successful fundraiser with Bev’s Fashions and a fun afternoon was enjoyed by all present.  We raised a total of $176.00 on the day.

Our current fund-raiser is the “Super Santa Christmas Raffle”, with three great prizes available. Tickets are $2.00 each and can be purchased at the Top Shop, the Post Office and the Boolarra Pub. All winners will be advised by phone after the draw.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support of Red Cross throughout 2010 and to wish you all a safe and happy Festive Season.

Glenys Morgan,
