Congratulations to Carol Smith for receiving a National Volunteer Award. Carol has been volunteering for 20 years in a number of organisations, and we at DRERS are very lucky to have her on our team. Well done Carol, you really earned this award!
A number of DRERS team members were so happy to be there to see you receive the award at Burrinja, presented to you by Laura Smyth MP. Carol, you are an inspiration to volunteers, and DRERS appreciates the hard work you do for our community. At DRERS we appreciate all of our volunteers! Go Team DRERS.
Many thanks to the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation for funds that we applied for via a grant application, which has enabled us to purchase a brand new glass door fridge. Check it out.
Our new fridge!
We encourage everyone to visit the Jarmbi gallery at Burrinja (April 6 – May 5) or any of the participating artists in the 35 Open Studios during the open weekend of 27-28 April 2013.
We are very grateful and pleased to be in a charitable partnership with the Open Studios program again for the second year. DRERS receives 20% of all exhibition sales which we will put to good use to assist people in the Dandenong Ranges.
Burrinja and Open Studios have formed a charitable partnership with DRERS for the second year.
