Chairperson’s Report 2014
In the role of Chairperson, my involvement at Trudewind Neighbourhood House is that of volunteer, friend, supportive listener and decision maker. This is a role I am proud to hold, especially when reflecting on the achievements of the entire centre throughout 2014, and the strong relationships that have been formed over the year.
I would like to thank the Committee of Management. The Committee members are a great mix of strong people from various walks of life. This ensures that a variety of views are represented in planning the direction of the centre and for this I give a great deal of thanks and gratitude.
During 2014, I was able to participate in courses offered at Trudewind. This gave me an insight into the positive impact our participants experience. I left each session with a sense of achievement and pride, knowing I had learned a new skill and gained knowledge. I gained a healthier understanding of how people feel when they have participated and for this I give thanks!
Therefore, appreciation and recognition needs to be given to our funding bodies, which include DHS, ACFE and Wodonga Council. It is with their financial assistance, that opportunities for learning and social interaction are initiated at Trudewind Neighbourhood House.
I acknowledge and thank the team here at Trudewind, Sue Lees, Nicki Curtis and Lyn Plant for always being willing to go above and beyond their roles. I would also like to thank the dedicated tutors, who facilitate all our learning opportunities which enabled 2014 to be a very successful year.
Trudewind Neighbourhood House is popular, vibrant, and a safe place of learning, where people are accepted and look forward to returning to, year after year.
With warm regards,
