Face painting and free flu shots are on the agenda as Centacare’s Rural Parenting Resilience Program celebrates its third birthday next Tuesday.
“We just want to celebrate all the families that we deal with at the moment and have in the past, and to let people know about what we do,” worker Tess Monckton said.
“We’ve gone from a brand new program to a successful parenting program, helping people with different bits and pieces.” Along with co-worker Sandi O’Donnell, Tess supports many local families.
There will be craft activities, a scavenger hunt and possibly a jumping castle to help celebrate the day, along with a free barbecue. Locals are invited to come along and get to know Tess and Sandi and learn how the program can support their families.
Armajun Aboriginal Health Service will also be on hand with free flu shots, recommended for children aged three and under and those over 65 years.
The family fun day will run from 10am-2pm on Tuesday, May 22, at Victoria Park.
