De­men­tia health ben­e­fi­ciary

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Tack­ling de­men­tia health is the win­ner of a small dis­cus­sion which grew to be­come a ‘Lun­cheon on the Lake’ on March 17, St Patrick’s Day.

Held at the iconic lake­side prop­erty so kindly made avail­able by Mar­garet and John Marchant, about 130 peo­ple en­joyed ex­cel­lent weather, gourmet food and fun en­ter­tain­ment.

It is be­lieved the day re­sulted in ap­prox­i­mately $10,000 be­ing raised which de­lighted or­ga­niz­ers.

The small com­mit­tee of women who or­gan­ised the day were in awe of the help and do­na­tions of time, goods and money.

Or­gan­is­ers de­scribed the re­sult as amaz­ing, es­pe­cially af­ter hum­ble be­gin­nings, which also gave guests a great so­cial day out.

It is also a great lo­cal fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion in man­ag­ing de­men­tia health which af­fects so many older Aus­tralians.
