Following a request from The Grenfell Preschool and Long Day Care Centre to sponsor a visit from Maggie Dent, The Grenfell Lions Club members moved that the club donate $500 in support.
Although this event is not till Saturday June 30, 2018 preschool director Sharon Grant and the management committee have worked hard to secure the very inspiring Maggie Dent to visit Grenfell. With such knowledge, and expertise this will be an event not to be missed.
Commonly known as the “queen of common sense,” Maggie Dent has become one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors and educators, with a particular interest in the early years, adolescence and resilience. Maggie’s experience includes teaching, counselling, and working in palliative care/funeral services and suicide prevention. Maggie is an advocate for the healthy, common-sense raising of children in order to strengthen families and communities. Now an in-demand writer and speaker, Maggie can often be heard on commercial and ABC radio around the country including Nova 937. She also appears on national TV programs such as the Daily edition, Sunrise, Today Extra and News.
Secretary of Grenfell Lions, Terry Carroll, presented the cheque to the very delighted Sharon Grant (director) and Melissa Martens (treasurer).
Sharon thanked the Lions Club for their generous support to assist in strengthening families and communities.
