The Biggest Thank You

Publish date: 11 December 2023

Buloke Shire Council in the last week of November staged a celebration to commemorate the significant contribution made by staff and volunteers through nearly 40 years of Aged and Disability Service provision to the Buloke area, dating back to pre-amalgamation.

A special day of celebration was held at Charlton Park as Council transitions from the service. Members of the Buloke community, current and past clients, staff, volunteers, and contractors joined Council for an afternoon tea, formalities, and introductions to the newly appointed service providers to the Buloke area.

In addition to the afternoon tea, the event included a formal recognition of the service and staff and guest speaker Ben Harkin who had everyone entertained, enthralled, and inspired. 
Mayor Cr Alan Getley paid credit to staff on their contributions. 

“Thank you to the staff we have had the pleasure of working with, we are indeed indebted to them for their dedication to caregiving in our community. Their loyalty to their clients throughout this year in particular is to be admired and celebrated.”

“We wish them all good luck in either retirement or redeployment with new employers. It is certainly comforting to know that you will be continuing to support our communities most vulnerable members”, he said. 

In coming weeks, a special place of reflection in commemoration of the service will be completed in Elliot Gardens, Charlton.
