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.
