Flying to honour Christine
Colourful kites were flying high in memory of beloved community member Christine Flynn.
More than 150 people gathered at the Tatura Park for ‘Chriss’ Kites’ hosted by the Greater Shepparton City Council’s Activities in the Park program.
The event, held in memory of Activities in the Park staff member Christine Flynn who died suddenly in July this year, was a place for children to colour in a kite and fly it. Healthy communities officer Carmen Nicholson said the event received great support with people travelling from various towns throughout the Goulburn Valley, including many members of the Flynn family.
‘‘It was really nice to have a lot of her family who came along,’’ Ms Nicholson said.
‘‘They were all so happy and so appreciative of the event.’’
She said Ms Flynn was remembered for her can-do attitude and her friendly face that welcomed children with a smile to many activities throughout her time in the program.
‘‘Coming from a dairy farming background she always displayed such a cando attitude,’’ she said.
‘‘She was hard-working, very reliable and would take any opportunity to be on deck with whatever was happening.’’
Ms Nicholson said she was thrilled to see so many in attendance, enjoying the sunshine and celebrating the life of Ms Flynn.
