along for a fun and relaxed buffet lunch at

SMRC Community Development Officer
“It will be a great chance to let people
know what services and groups are
available in the Jindabyne community and it
will also help us identify gaps. Getting like-

and help them connect over their interests.

The Neighbourhood Centre is an
example of that and is such a great facility
for connecting people with each other and
with the resources they need.”
Tickets are $35 each and are available
from the SMNC and the Jindabyne CWA,
