A BUSY MONTH FOR NOVEMBER
The CRC held a range of activities for the community during November which targeted a wide range of demographics.
Three Morning Biz Talks were held with Jasmine Porter from Business Advisory South West and Peel. These informal sessions covered topics raised by participants including business planning, marketing, business growth and online presence. More sessions, as well as specific workshops, are being planned for next year.
The monthly Art Journaling workshops for children continued with participants drawing inspiration from motivational quotes and expressing what the quote meant to them and how it made them feel using a variety of art media.
It was a full house for the Talison Lithium community information session as people were interested to find out about the expansion projects, employment opportunities and what impact the growth may have on the Boyup Brook community.
An information session was also presented to Commonwealth Home Support Programme clients about falls prevention and how to stay on your feet. Members from the Boyup Brook Lions Club also attended to provide information about care alerts and the program that the Lions Club operates to provide these devices to those in need. A wonderful discussion followed about the Lions Community Bus project and highlighted the needs of the elderly residents in regard to transport.
A Responsible Service of Alcohol course was delivered via videoconference at the end of the month which was again well attended. This training provided education about alcohol legislation, responsible service and taught skills in how to identify and respond to intoxicated persons.
All of these events, plus the regular services that the CRC offers to the community, has made it a very busy month.

Thank you for supporting your CRC!
A big thank you to those who wrote letters of support, sent postcards and displayed our bumper stickers. The outpouring of support received by the network was incredible, and surely helped the state government come to this decision.
