National Volunteer Week ran from May 17-23, celebrating the significant contribution of Australia’s almost six million volunteers.
This year’s theme was Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine.
Adelaide Plains Council thanked its local volunteers by inviting them to a free movie screening on Tuesday May 18.
About 30 volunteers, representing over a dozen organisations, attended the Gawler Cinemas to watch a morning screening of ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’, followed by a light lunch.
The evening screening was ‘June Again’ and volunteers were treated to their choice of a free popcorn or choc-top to tuck into as they enjoyed the movie.
Mayor Mark Wasley attended the morning session where he personally thanked the volunteers for their contributions to the local community.
