The Early Connections Manning and Great Lakes Team extends a huge thanks to the Rotary Club of Taree for their incredible fundraising efforts, financial contributions, and hard work in dismantling our old yard at the Taree centre. Their generous support has been instrumental in making our new playground a reality.

We are thrilled to announce that the final element of the new playground at our Taree centre was installed on 25 June! This beautiful piece of art, painted by the talented Pastor Russell Saunders OAM and his daughter Raechel Saunders from Deep Water Shark Gallery, depicts stunning underwater creatures and adds a vibrant, child-friendly touch to our playground.

To celebrate these efforts and show our appreciation, we hosted a thank-you morning tea last week with EC staff and Rotary members. It was fabulous to spend time together and see everyone enjoying the new play equipment.

The Rotary Club of Taree have become lifelong friends of our organisation, and we are excited for everyone to see our beautiful new playground on their next visit.
