Coffee and conversation for our senior residents

We have had a good response to the HCA facilitating get togethers for our senior Hackett residents. Our first gathering (booked out) will be on Thursday 14 July at Siam Twist. Participants would need to cover their owns costs for food and drinks and arrange their own transport to and from home. If you would like to participate in future gatherings send an email to the HCA info@hackett.asn.au.
