High tea at house
Tatura Community House held its annual High Tea fundraiser at the facility on Tuesday, with a full-house present to enjoy a sumptuous morning tea, good conversation and relaxing time together.
The popular event saw 78 people booked in, and according to committee president Gail Gillis, ‘‘unfortunately we had to turn people away’’.
‘‘It just exploded year,’’ she said.
‘‘At a cost of just $15 for the High Tea, it was real value for money.’’
Ms Gillis said the Community House provided a number of services for the community, and the fundraiser enabled it to continue in that manner.
She said Tuesday’s event attracted past and present volunteers, 10 ladies from the Tatura Autistic Group and other community groups.
‘‘All-in-all it was a pleasant morning enjoyed by all who attended,’’ she said.
A highlight of the morning was the drawing of the raff le, which saw Jenna Carter take out the major prize — a $200 Fishers voucher, Lorraine Dennis was second ($100 Fishers voucher) and Nancy
this Taylor third ($50 Hotel voucher).
Tatura Community House was established in 1981 as a community development initiative to provide social services to the community.
The house has grown to meet the current day needs of the community and provides a large variety of services including adult education, childcare, social and leisure activities, information and referral.
