Gail Cock­burn con­tin­ued in her role as Trea­surer. The in­com­ing com­mit­tee com­prises Re­becca War­land, Cassie Cairns, Ray Rex, Chris­tine Price and Paul Green. The as­so­ci­a­tion has just com­pleted a busy year and is look­ing to build on its suc­cesses. In­com­ing pres­i­dent Ker­rie Jamieson said, ‘‘The as­so­ci­a­tion is in­cred­i­bly for­tu­nate in the qual­ity and strength of the staff it has in­volved in youth, com­mu­nity ser­vices and life­style and respite sup­port ser­vices. Some of the ac­tiv­i­ties un­der­taken by the as­so­ci­a­tion in­clude the Art and Craft, Men’s Shed, a free hot lunch ev­ery Wed­nes­day, emer­gency relief, the Moss­man Youth Cen­tre, and life­style and respite care for per­sons with a dis­abil­ity and their fam­ily/carer. Work­shops on do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, cul­tural aware­ness and sui­cide preven­tion are held at var­i­ous times through­out the year. The as­so­ci­a­tion plays a vi­tal role in the Moss­man com­mu­nity and in­vites any­one in­ter­ested to drop in to their Mill St cen­tre premises and say hello and look at ways they can get in­volved. Vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties in­clude work­ing on the Com­mu­nity gar­den, build­ing myna bird traps, fur­ni­ture restora­tion and shar­ing skills at the Men’s Shed, as­sis­tance with the prepa­ra­tion and ser­vice of the free Wed­nes­day lun­cheon, re­cep­tion du­ties and as­sis­tance with var­i­ous fundrais­ing events. One area of ex­per­tise that the or­gan­i­sa­tion is des­per­ately look­ing for is some­one with the knowl­edge and abil­ity to as­sist us in up­dat­ing our web­site.
