Today is also the Polish Independence Day 🇵🇱 (Polish: Narodowe Święto Niepodległości) which is a national day in Poland marking the anniversary of the restoration of Poland's sovereignty as the Second Polish Republic in 1918 from the German, Austro-Hungarian and Russian Empires.

The Monday Golden Age Club which has mostly Polish speaking members celebrated the occasion with traditional polish pastries called Saint Martin's Croissant or Rogal świętomarciński in Polish. Thank you to Chopin Patisserie for the delicious treats.

After morning tea, the group also paused at 11 am for Remembrance Day. 🌺

Umbrella Community Care

The Melbourne Cup is one of Australia’s most well-known racing events. The first race was held at the Flemington Racecourse in Victoria in 1861 and it is run every year on the first Tuesday of November.

This year, the clients from Umbrella’s Golden Age Club watched the race and dressed in their finest outfits. The staff supported the clients to enter a “best hat” competition and participate in a fashion parade, whilst all were entertained by live music and enjoyed a delicious morning tea.

November 5 is a day when volunteers and managers around the world have a chance to reflect on and celebrate the critical work they do. Coordination, support, training, administration, and recruitment of volunteers – they are all skilled professionals who are adept at taking singular passion and turning it into effective action.

Thank you to Volunteering WA for hosting this exceptional event and well done to our Volunteer Coordinator, Karla Benitez for her fantastic work supporting and empowering all Umbrella volunteers. #umbrellavolunteerteam #umbrellacommunitycare #Team #happy #stronger #together #seniors #joinus #0892754411
