Kindale hosts annual lunch

The most anticipated event on the calendar at Kindale is the annual community Christmas lunch.

The most anticipated event on the calendar at Kindale Developmental Association is the annual community Christmas lunch.

It is a chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones.

Teresa Durning-Harker, owner of Durning Directions, and a guest at the event for several years, has seen first hand the joy and excitement this event brings to many. When an opportunity to sponsor 20 turkeys needed to feed the guests, opened up this year, Durning-Harper approached her staff to get involved.

“It warms my heart to be part of a Kindale occasion that brings so much joy and happiness. This event redials me every year to what the true meaning of Christmas is supposed to be” said Durning-Harker.

Kindale staff and clients are looking forward to the lunch.

“It’s one of my favourite Kindale events and fills my heart with joy,” said Cindy Masters, Kindale development officer.
