During Palms’ Re-entry Weekend, 22nd — 24th May at The Hermitage Mittagong, one of the highlights is the opportunity for returned volunteers to share their stories with people with similar experiences.
Just as Australia is more than just the Opera House, cricketers, kangaroos and beer, there is so much more to our northern neighbour than popular images give credit to.
In the last edition of Palms Post, as part of our celebrations for the Golden Jubilee of the Paulian Association, we reflected upon the memories and achievements of Palms volunteers and staff from the 1960s, 70’s and 80’s. In this edition, we move into the 1990’s and the first decade of the new millennium.
All the stories we heard about before we came away have proved to be false – our experience has been one of meeting very friendly and helpful people.
Listed below are five of the confirmed placements for the coming year. We are seeking CommUnity Partners for these and several others which are currently being finalised.
