Dear friend

 

Ten years ago Helen L’Orange had an idea …which became the Waverton Hub and this year's Christmas party was about celebrating those 10 years as well as the forthcoming festive season.

 

It was a jolly crowd and there were a number who have been with the Hub since the beginning … it is a testament to the success of the organisation that they are still active members.

 

As one relatively new to the Hub (I joined 4 years ago) I am most grateful to the team who run things - and who are keeping me in tune with the organisation. It was a wonderful opportunity to thank everyone who contributes to the running of the Hub, especially the executive and to honour Helen for her vision which had brought us all together.

 

Those who couldn't attend didn't just miss the great vibe, they also missed a delicious and never-ending selection of delicious morsels from Waterview Cafe. The crowning glory was the cakes – one gluten-free so no one missed out.

 

This is just the beginning of end-of-year celebrations for many and there will be more get-togethers as Christmas gets closer. This week the Christmas choir met for the first time and began working with choir leader Peter Butt on a selection of carols for the performances at Waverton Station in December.

 

As we get into the festive spirit I hope you will make the time to be involved with at least one end-of-year get-together and celebrate the friendships you have made through our amazing Hub.

More than 70 per cent of participants have found jobs linked to their professional field of expertise as a result. Linda is also President of the Zonta Club of North Sydney.

 

There were 29 joint winners for the Living Legend Award – all of whom are volunteers with the North Sydney Bushcare Program. Each have contributed 20 or more years of service. Bushcare celebrates its 30th anniversary in April. These include Hub Members Mary Lyn Lawrence who has served 30 years and Hilary Walker. Many other Hub Members also volunteer for Bushcare.

Australian innovation in Light Treatment for Parkinson's disease –

28 November – Ann Liebert

 

This talk will discuss the last 12 years of Australian research innovation in light therapy.  This has resulted in treatment protocols with a device approved by the TGA for the treatment of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.

 

Light is a switch in the body and it can provide energy to cells in many processes. It is the relevant to our circadian rhythms, particularly the morning sun and the afternoon and evening sun which is rich in red light. The seasons also affect our circadian rhythms.
