Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : May 20th 2009
10 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 21, 2009 MB NEWS Tony Watson, Lance Brooks and Jacque Weaver from Communities for Communities pictured with Dean Woodham from Concord Golf Club. Vollie's rainbow end AN Abbotsford mum-of- three has been applauded for her volunteer work for local charity Communities for Communities. Jacque Weaver was pres- ented with a special award at Parliament House as part of National Volunteers Week. Mrs Weaver is the Canada Bay charity's event man- ager and organises the annual ball which raises about $50,000. She said that as a volun- teer, she had ''grown in so many ways''. ''For one thing I am a lot happier within myself,'' she said. ''Doing something for others to the best of my ability and not looking for anything in return. ''I have worked with so many people through each of the events and learned something vital from each person.'' Mrs Weaver said she was very proud of the charity's achievements, including the Rainbow Village project which helps 120 families who had been living on a rubbish dump in Southern Vietnam. ''I am proud that we have been able to get the children off the tip in Vietnam and into school right away and how proud those kids must feel being able to learn something every day,'' she said. Communities for Com- munities president Lance Brooks described Mrs Weaver as ''a wonder''. ''She is dynamic, enthusi- astic and extremely passion- ate and deserves the ac- knowledgment,'' he said.

The Area Community Forums are now in their fourth year and provide an interactive platform for residents to discuss face-to-face with Council any concerns in their neighbourhood. The upcoming forum will highlight current projects, park works, community events/services, sustainability initiatives and playground improvements. I look forward to meeting you at the community forum. If you would like any further information please contact Council.
