GREAT conversations flowed as good food was enjoyed at the Women’s Multicultural End of Year Celebration at the Mt Druitt Community Hub.
Some of the women gathered even embraced the chance to dress in their traditional garb as they bid farewell to a year spent forming friendships as members of various community groups in the area.
For Magda Michaels, the event allowed her to reflect on the profound impact joining an activity in her community has had on her life.
“I joined a meditation class this year and, while I’ve only been five times, it has changed my life,” Mrs Michaels said.
“When I started, I was very down, very sad and really depressed but just getting involved in something for me has been absolutely beneficial to me.”
WASH House’s Josephine Rechichi organised the luncheon, now in its fourth year. She said it was a great way to bring the women of the area together.
The free lunch is a collaboration by organisations such as Mission Australia, Cancer Council, WASH House and Graceades Cottage.
The Women's Multicultural End of Year Celebration is always a hit.
