L’ARCHE COMMUNITY WEEKEND AT MARY KNOLL, BLACKMANS BAY
At the recent Community Weekend everyone enjoyed walks to Blackmans Bay beach, a trip to the pool, and sharing in groups how 'me' can become 'us'. It was moving to see everyone standing on the rainbow coloured path together.
We worked in groups of; Core Members, Long Term Members, Assistants, Tenancy and Friends. We did a few group activities looking at what we can offer Community and where our skills and talents lie. We also made posters which showed the things we discussed and shared them with the group.
Meals were lovely and we had a great party on the Saturday night. This year the theme was to get dressed up and everyone went to a lot of effort and looked fantastic!! Bruiser Burles and Rocky Ryan attended as usual and created a lot of laughs and humour with their wit and jokes.
Depsite the very warm weather it was a very relaxed and happy gathering and we look forward to next years Community Weekend.
