The following article appeared in the Braidwood Times, August 3, 2016:
Braidwood Life Centre Inc. has moved into the new building at the Rec. ground and the beginning of a new era. Because of this move we are now able to offer so much more to our community.
Our Christmas in July annual fundraiser on Saturday night was a real celebration of this move. We had a wonderful fun evening with beautiful food by Vanilla Catering followed with much hilarity by an auction and raffles. The auction and raffles was made possible only by the generosity of businesses and individuals in our community. The monies raised will give us the chance to help in many ways with youth, the elderly, young families and the disadvantaged and we take this opportunity to thank you publically for your generosity.
We continue to do the Duke of Edinburg Award activities for youth. Soon there will be more to offer for the young people. A new group called Reminiscing will begin in September, Pastoral Care continues, there is now a young families group meeting at the centre twice a month and the room is open each Thursday to help people with a hand up. We recently ran a one day seminar and intend to continue running information and education seminars.
We now have a website and would encourage you to keep up with all that we are offering and doing. Simply type Braidwood Life Centre into your computer. Thank you Braidwood, we are a loving and generous community.
