Over the Melbourne Cup Weekend on Sunday 30 October the skies stayed clear and the community come together and enjoyed an afternoon of great company and food.
Around 150 people gathered at the Wye River CFA and enjoyed the company of family and friends and being part of the unique community of Wye River, Separation Creek and Kennett River.
Members of the Community Resilience Committee (CRC) and the Community Connection and Wellbeing Work Group were on hand to assist and community members did a great job manning the bbq. Volunteers from Volunteering Victoria also worked hard to ensure that it was an enjoyable day for the community.
The kids also had a ball with plenty of activities on offer. The Southern Otway Landcare Network did seed planting, the Lorne Hospital organised an amazing creative interactive activity for parents and children with clay and organic materials and Colac Otway Shire provided plaster cast figurines for painting with some wonderful painters (kids and parents!) on show.
The lunch was organised by the CRC Community Connection and Wellbeing Work Group and funded by the Colac Otway Shire.
Thanks for a terrific day!
