Message From Major Mim

Some great things have been happening in SAGALA across the Territory.  Leongatha SAGALA have been visited by an ambulance, hung out their washing and marched behind a band on their way to The Salvation Army Leongatha new corps building. The same weekend Phoebe Clarkson was also presented with her Commissioner's Award by Commissioner Tracey Tidd.
We have candidates for their General's Award from Maryborough, Bendigo & Wyndham Corps. This involves a lot of work. 'Keep at it!'
Sunshine SAGALA recently were visited by Captain Colin Elkington, Asylum Seeker & Refugee Support, and prepared Care Packages for the Asylum Seeker children in Maribyrnong Detention Centre. They raised money and then bought art items, finger puppets, small toys and a bouncing ball for each child. They also made cards that said 'Welcome'. They also did the Help 'em Out badge and participated in Random acts of Kindness for the Season of Lent.
Clarence Corps in Tasmania have a very active SAGALA group and they have also been involved in helping others, collecting at their local shopping Centre for The Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal.
Check out the Photo Gallery for the latest pics. There's lots of enrolments too!
