As a community group, we were fortunate to be invited to the City of Vincent’s (CoV) “Thank you” Sundowner.
Held at the Vincent Administration Building, there were about 120 people from different community groups and council staff.
CoV’s CEO Len Kosova gave a brief speech, followed by Mayor John Carey.
Mayor Carey acknowledged the role community groups played and thanked them for their contributions. He then spoke about the challenges the council faced and the changes already made and also planned for 2015.
I got to meet meet people from the North Perth Community Gardens, North Perth Men’s Shed and the Claise Brook Catchment Group.
Lisa spoke to Lee from the Men’s Shed about a new sustainability project she and Geoff are interested in.
It was a good night, spent with people who are making positive contributions to the communities they live in.
Thank you for a lovely evening, City of Vincent, and Transition Town Mt Hawthorn look forward to working with you to make our community a better place.
