The thoughts and feelings of 40 people diagnosed with a lifelimiting illness and receiving palliative care support have been published in visual artist Pippa Wischer’s book The Dreamers, which prompts readers to think about the deeper questions of life and what matters most.
Palliative Care Victoria has produced a photographic exhibition using the images and interviews from The Dreamers, and Lower Hume Palliative Care Seymour Health is now bringing the exhibition to the region.
The exhibition will be open to the public, free of charge, at three venues — Seymour Library, Kilmore Library and the Alexandra hospital — from this Saturday until October 13.
Lower Hume Palliative Care volunteers will also be at each venue between 11 am and 1 pm daily to chat about palliative care and its volunteer program.
For more information phone Lower Hume Palliative Care on 5735 8070 or email email@example.com
Council question time
The next Mitchell Shire Community Questions and Hearings Committee is scheduled for Monday night.
The monthly forum allows residents to pose a question, and make presentations and submissions to council.
It will be held at the Broadford Council Chambers from 7 pm.
Avenel fun run
Avenel’s fifth annual fun run and walk will be held on Sunday.
The event takes participants on a 2.5 km journey up Lovers Hill, and encourages children and adults to take a new look at Avenel while enjoying a run or walk.
The run begins at 9 am and starts and finishes near Jubilee Park.
Organisers would prefer participants to register by phoning 0438 678 323, or you can register on the day.
There is an open class, as well as a secondary and primary age group, but the essence of the run is just to have fun and take in the views and families are encouraged to participate.
