Tuggeranong's Salvos early to rise in 007


Tuggeranong''s Salvos
Over 60 community and business leaders attended a breakfast function on February 1 to hear about the important work being done by The Salvation Army in Tuggeranong and how others can get involved. The meeting highlighted important community needs in areas of youth services and aged care, especially plans for expanding the buildings and facilities.
“The Tuggeranong Community Leaders breakfast is an important avenue for The Salvation Army to stay in tune with the needs of our community,” Major David Terracini said. “It is also a great way of keeping the awareness out there of what we do, whilst also supporting people in our community in the various leadership roles that they hold. We recognise the influence and impact that these leaders have and greatly appreciate their continued support.”
Federal Member for Canberra, Annette Ellis MP, Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, John Hargreaves; Jeff Whalan, Head of Centrelink and Rosemary Lissimore of Tuggeranong Community Council were among the guests at the breakfast.
The breakfast provided an opportunity to launch Faith ‘007 – a special program being run during February and March to provide an avenue for people who are looking for contemporary and practical ways of exploring faith issues, or simply needing support in dealing with daily issues. Other activities planned for the year include:
. The Zymodic Dance Party on the first Saturday of each month, which attracts over 300 young people (aged 12-16) to a clean, safe, drug and alcohol-free environment; . Mainly Music – a weekly activity program for preschool children and their parents; . Youth programs – Sagala youth clubs (including guides and rangers); . Community Services – community support and welfare, including Tuggeranong based client services and support to participants in drug and alcohol recovery programs; . Carols by Candelight, Tuggeranong Town Park – in conjunction with Harvest Christian Fellowship and other community partners the 2006 Carols in Town Park attracted around 2000 local people; . Regular Sunday morning worship service in Tuggeranong attended by over 200 people.
