kallista community house still going strong

It was terrific to attend the Kallista Community House AGM last week. It's always great to visit local community houses and see the diversity of activities and services available for community members and Kallista Community House is no exception.

Kathy Cann, long time house supporter, past house manager and current house committee member and Cr Samantha Dunn checking out the diversity of courses on offer at Kallista Community House.

It's been another good year for the house, despite the gloomy financial outlook of the GFC. The house has continued to offer a diverse range of classes including photography, painting and drawing, singing, cooking, health and fitness, first aid and computer classes.

The house also continued to provide Childcare, one of their staples whilst Playgroup has been very popular too with a second day added to the program.

I thanked the house for their ongoing efforts, particularly the wonderful community market, Kallista Community Market, a terrific example of community engagement providing locals with a chance to relax and chat in a beautiful setting. I also thanked the committee and volunteers that make it all happen, they contribute greatly to our community and the social fabric of the area and are to be commended.
