Successfully obtaining funds from Healthway under the Act-Belong-Commit campaign, the Canning Agricultural, Horticultural & Recreational Society acknowledges the support received on behalf of its members. Commencing it’s Special Interest Groups in 2012, the program is now complete.
Consisting of a Show Choir, Theatre Group, Craft Mornings, Home Gardening Group and both Social Knitting and Machine Knitting, CECS is certainly thriving with its members acting, belonging and committing morning and night, on a weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis as part of the newly titled ‘Act-Belong-Commit Arts & Events Program’.
Activities like the Woolly Winter Night is a social knitting project to meet like-minded people and to find a common bond with local residents. The series continued due to popular demand and is now known as Woolly Wednesday Nights. Participants have contributed to a community blanket, yarn-bombed a shopping trolley and knitted a life-size sheep.
There are also a series of free Drama Workshops. Also continuing as a weekly event due to popular demand, the group is now known as the Canning Show Performance Troupe. Members meet every Thursday night to take part in an array of dramaturgical activities, develop techniques, confidence, self-esteem and self- expression.
“The Act-Belong-Commit message is all about and it fits perfectly with Healthway’s aim of promoting positive mental health among individual people and whole communities throughout Western Australia”,” said Healthway’s Acting Executive Director, Maree De Lacey.
