In the following weeks, the annual Cancer Council's Australia's Biggest Morning Tea will be held at venues across Bankstown. The Bankstown Cancer Women's Support Group will be hosting their annual morning tea at Bankstown Library on Thursday 19 May and then again on Thursday 26 May from 9.30am. Please bring along a gold coin donation and support this worthy cause. All residents are welcome.
Last Wednesday marked the 39th ANZAC Day Book presentation at Padstow Library. Each year Padstow RSL commemorate the Anzacs by donating a generous amount of money to the Library for the purchase of books. Thank you to the Padstow RSL Sub Branch and to those individuals for their kind donations and to Deputy Mayor Khal Asfour for representing me.
Afterwards, Deputy Mayor Khal Asfour continued to represent me at the Chinese Australian Services Society (CASS) Biggest Morning Tea. This event raised funds towards crucial cancer research, education and support services. The event also incorporated the launch of the 30th Anniversary DVD "The Journey of CASS in 30 Years", capturing the history of this valued community service organisation. Congratulations to CASS on this great milestone.
Later in the evening, Deputy Khal Asfour was welcomed on my behalf to the opening night of Urban Theatre Project's production of Ama & Chan held at the newly opened Bankstown Arts Centre.
