Riverland ME/CFS Support Group’s 1st Birthday:
24 October 2008
The Riverland ME/CFS Support Group celebrated its first birthday on Friday 24 October at 2008 the Riverland Resource Centre in Berri.
Here is a report of the celebrations from members Raelene & Simon Jackson:
Friday October 24th 2008
10 people arrived on a pleasant Friday morning to celebrate the Riverland ME/CFS Support Group's 1st birthday.
They were "Snapper" (Lindsay), Lyndon, Sandra, Corrado, Sue, Cheryl, Delly, Liz, Raelene & Simon. Unfortunately several people were unable to attend due to illness or prior arrangements.
A welcome is extended to our new members Sue & Lindsay.
It's hard to believe that a year has passed since the group had its 1st meeting at the Berri Library in 2007.
It was a much laid back gathering and people moved around the tables and mingled and of course the odd conversation was heard to include ME/CFS (funny about that) it was nice to be able to talk about any & everything not just ME/CFS and of course change the world.
Raelene spent Thursday evening whipping up a large sponge cake for everyone to savour.
Friday morning fresh cream was added just to make it more mouth watering, & I can tell you there weren't any complaints.
We hope that the group will still be here in another 12 months with all the enthusiasm & caring that everyone has, they are all a great bunch of people.
Thanks must go to the Society & members for all their support and to our great group who make it so successful.
Raelene & Simon Jackson
