The Ringwood Uniting Church is located in Greenwood Avenue, Ringwood and offers an Adult Day Care service to provide social outings and activities for older residents.
This afternoon the Centre celebrated its 30th anniversary, with three of the current volunteers being founding members of the group.
When the service was launched in 1979, the notion of adult day care was an innovative concept and thirty years the service still continues strongly. The friendliness and warmth of the volunteers, combined with participants who were clearly enjoying the proceedings, was exceptional and fulfils an increasing need within our community.
The Ringwood Uniting Church Adult Day Care Centre is another example of the dedication and commitment provided by volunteers. I would like to congratulate the Church and the volunteers for reaching this 30 year milestone.
