Morn­ing Tea

Monthly Chronicle - - Village Voice -

The Friends of Mount Co­lah group and Mt Co­lah Phar­macy and Post Of­fice would like to say a Big Thank you to ev­ery­one who sup­ported the Morn­ing Tea on 22nd Septem­ber 2018.

It was a great day! Lots of happy and smil­ing peo­ple. It was an en­joy­able way for neigh­bours to min­gle and to make new friends. Many would agree that the morn­ing tea ful­filled our mis­sion state­ment of “Bring­ing the Mt Co­lah Com­mu­nity to­gether.”

In be­tween mouth­fuls of de­li­cious cakes, tasty sausages with home-made sauer­kraut, the kids were ea­gerly colouring in their com­pe­ti­tion en­tries. When the top 10 win­ners were an­nounced there were many happy faces to proudly col­lect their prizes.

Many of th­ese amaz­ing prizes were do­nated by Mt Co­lah lo­cals and lo­cal busi­nesses such as Mt Co­lah Pizze­ria, Gal­ley Foods Eatery, Four Sea­sons Plant Bug Gar­den Cen­tre, Thairapy De­sign Stu­dio, Bite Me Bake­houe, Com­fort Dis­cov­ered, Khumo Tyres, Paul’s Light­ing, Roam­ing Chooks, The Neigh­bour­hood Watch, The Bush Tele­graph Weekly, Small Biz and The Monthly Chronicle. Thank you to th­ese small busi­nesses and lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions for their gen­eros­ity and be­ing an in­te­gral part of com­mu­ni­ties such as Mt Co­lah. We are also very grate­ful to all the vol­un­teers who helped on the day as they made the day pos­si­ble. Com­mu­nity spirit was in the air!

One high­light of the day was the launch of the FOMC Com­mu­nity No­tice­board. This no­tice board which is lo­cated at the Mt Co­lah shops - is to be used to help pro­mote com­mu­nity events and ini­tia­tives. If any­one would like to pro­mote a lo­cal com­mu­nity group, event or ini­tia­tive please visit the friendly staff in the Mt Co­lah Post Of­fice with your A4- sized poster and they will help you out.

On a very pos­i­tive note - to­gether we raised funds which will go to­wards fu­ture FOMC events and ini­tia­tives. Our next ini­tia­tive is the FOMC Street Li­brary – which is a com­mu­nity idea to help spread the joy of read­ing. We have col­lab­o­rated with Stu­dio Artes (www.stu­dioartes.org.au) as they have gen­er­ously of­fered to paint the street li­brary for us. Once it is painted and ready to go, we will or­gan­ise a date for the FOMC Street Li­brary to be launched and ev­ery­one will be in­vited!
