KILMORE

There's Something in it for You!

 


There's just no reason to be bored or lonely in Kilmore. There's got to be something in it for you. The Kilmore Mechanics' Institute's Vision survey showed a remarkably low membership rate of Kilmore organisations so this directory is a first step to promoting the many and varied community organisations. So if you would like to meet some people with like interests, then this directory is for you. If there's nothing to suit you then why not start an informal group of like minded people, it can even be you and a neighbour for lunch or afternoon tea on Thursday or whenever.

If you have some time on your hands the Talking Free Press for the visually impaired needs readers for its weekly roster. Meals on Wheels also needs volunteers to deliver meals to Kilmore's senior citizens daily. Most churches have informal morning tea groups or undertake catering for various functions and they would welcome your participation. Kilmore Tourism maintains a roster at its Tourist Information Centre seven days per week and the Kilmore Fire Brigade needs volunteers to train for emergency situations as does the SES. If you've got first aid training the Broadford-Kilmore St John's Ambulance needs helpers to staff its units.

This Directory is only as good as the information supplied, so if you spot or experience an inaccuracy let us know. If there's a local group not listed, definitely let us know! Write to: Kilmore Mechanics' Institute, Box 47, Kilmore, V 3764 or leave the correction and/or addition under the Court House door, 4 Powlett Street, Kilmore.
