About 200 people gathered at the Intereach Neighbourhood Centre last Thursday for the organisation’s 40th birthday street party.
It was an afternoon of reminiscing and making new memories, with live entertainment, children’s activities and a host of Intereach memorabilia on display.
Guests were the first to view Intereach’s commemorative video, commissioned by Jackson Black films and produced by Intereach senior manager – Community Development Unit, Nina O’Brien-Hehir.
There was also afternoon tea prepared by Intereach’s Italian group and a special anniversary cake.
Intereach CEO Sue Mathieson said the street party was a ‘‘tremendous celebration of what a community can achieve’’.
‘‘It was a wonderful day with a couple of hundred people attending. Everyone enjoyed themselves, and in particular the kids loved the Sciencetwists science expo.’’
A highlight of the afternoon was the closing of a time capsule by Intereach executive officer Danielle Scoullar and chairman Clive Gow, to be opened at the 50th anniversary. Artwork was created by children who attend the Intereach Family Centre, which was buried alongside general Intereach information.
‘‘Gina McGrath, who was recognised as Intereach Carer of the Year, also spoke on the importance of children’s services,’’ Ms Mathieson said.
A plaque from the original End St community centre was presented to Intereach, and board member Pat Fogarty spoke on the Intereach theme of ‘from little things big things grow’.
