General Manager's Report
Good afternoon to all,
The Moonee Ponds Club is proud to be a sponsor the Moonee Valley Art Show as part of the Club’s continued support of the local community. The art show is being held this weekend, at the North Park Mansion, 69 Woodland Street Essendon. All members will enjoy half price admission by simply presenting their member card at the gate.
The Moonee Valley Art Show raises funds to enable support of the Caroline Chisholm Society, Moonee Valley Men’s Shed Strathmore, Kangan Institute, Youth Projects and the Homeless, McAuley Women’s Services, Western Autistic School and Essendon District Scouts. With a strong emphasis on supporting youth from local schools to participate in life skills development activities and supporting a number of overseas communities in need in countries such as Peru, Cambodia, Philippines and Sri Lanka. The Moonee Valley Art Show’s profits this year will help fund these and other worthy causes.
As your Club gets back to pre-Covid conditions, I thought it would be good to touch base with you all on what is happing at your Club.
