Community to celebrate National Families Week

A FREE community barbeque will be held in Pioneer Park in Proserpine this Friday to celebrate National Families Week (May 15-21).

The theme of this year's National Families Week is 'stronger families, stronger communities', which highlights the role families play in building a stronger community.

National Families Week is a time to celebrate with family, make contact with extended family and friends, and share in the enjoyment of family activities within the wider community.

The community get-together will be held at the Pioneer Park in Proserpine from 5-8pm this Friday.

Highlights of the event will include a free sausage sizzle, live entertainment, interactive games and fun quizzes, face painting, a lolly drop, a lucky door prize and other great giveaways for the whole family to enjoy.

There will also be a number of stalls to provide information about the services available to families and individuals within the Whitsunday region.

The community event will be held by a collaboration of local community-based not-for-profit services including Whitsunday Neighbourhood Centre (WNC), Whitsunday Crisis and Counselling Service (WCCS), Proserpine Community Centre and Y Factor Youth Committee.

For more information, contact WNC family support worker Sandra Kelly on 4946 7850.
