A fun day for families~

A huge thank you to all of you for your support and assistance on Treeby Community Olympic day. It was a fantastic turnout and we couldn't have asked for better weather!

All the participants showed fantastic sportsmanship and we are happy that everyone had fun!

TCA would like to thank Kathy Pritchard, who is a teacher and a running candidate for East Ward Cockburn, for organising this fun event promoting healthy and family fun. She managed to secure a grant for all the games, equipment, and prizes. After the event, we were happy to hear that there are more events to come for our fellow Treebians!

Also a huge thanks to Lee-Anne Smith for taking time out to make some recycled ribbons for the participants! We are truly grateful for the support!

Lee-Anne, Kathy, and some of the TCA gang.

Of course, we would like to thank all the volunteers for taking their precious time to help set up the games, teach & supervise at each station and clean up after the event. We couldn't have done it without you! Looking at all the smiling faces and laughter mean that this event was well organised and was a success.

Lastly, to those who came and join the fun. We do wish that you and your family had a blast. Please share the word around and watch out for our next event! We would love to see more Treebians come together in these community events. Please feel free to give us any feedback to help us improve for our next events.

Below are some pictures from Sunday for you all to enjoy! 🙂

Thank you everyone who came by our Bunning's snag-tent yesterday to grab a bite! The event was a delicious success.

The event fundraised around $1,200 from the sausage sizzle and our sponsors. We hit the $700 target for our community garden defibrillator plus more! The additional funds will be directed towards future events and assisting TCA to serve our community better.

A huge thanks to our TCA president Lani and secretary Helen for organising this event. Many love to our volunteers, Kathy, Mike, Tynille, Natalie, Daran, Wagish, Kevin, Chris, Marie, Mai, Ivana, Amy, and Louise, for taking out their time to help in this event. We also have a special visit from Deputy Mayor Lee-Anne Smith who has always been a strong supporter of TCA. Lee-Anne surprised us with her hand-made TCA aprons! We were proud to wear them.

Last but not least, we would like to thank all the patrons for taking your time out on Sunday to support our initiative. It was heartwarming to see many fellow residents (Calleyans), bringing their families along for a quick bite.

We, here at TCA, are grateful at the amount of encouragement and support from within the estate and from the surrounding suburbs. Thank you again. We could not have done it without you!

 

P.S. We have our Calleya Family Olympics next Sunday 6th October @ 10 am. See you there!

What is the best thing to do on a beautiful Sunday morning?

That is, of course, bring your family down to our new-ish Treeby Community Oval on Clementine Blvd and join the Treeby Family Olympics. Organised by the TCA and sponsored by City of Cockburn.

The event is open to all residents of Treeby and to all ages. Just bring your hat, water bottle, slap on some sun-screen, and put on your game face.

Treeby Family Olympic is on Sunday, 6th October 2019. Starting at 10am and finish at 1pm. There will be many fun activities and prizes to be won! We've got sack racing, giant tic-tac-toe, soccer, totem tennis, and much much more.

Save the date!

6th October 2019 @ 10am on our oval

See you there~

You may have noticed that construction for the long-awaited community garden has commenced. It was once a barren sandpit, but now there are structures and planter boxes spotted throughout.

A huge thanks to the team at Stockland Calleya, our supportive Deputy Mayor and East Ward Councillors, and our Treeby Community Association (TCA) executive team for making this happen.

A community garden is a place where people come together to grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits. TCA believes that urban agriculture can be beneficial to the environment, and the health and wellbeing of community members. The introduction of community garden provides opportunities for both recreational gardening and growing food for consumption. Gardens also contribute to the biodiversity of species and help to support populations of pollinators. Finally, a community garden brings people together by engaging residents in a positive initiative.

The garden is still at the primal stage with a target completion date of early-November. There will be a 'planting day' event to officiate the opening of the community garden, but that will be advised when we receive the confirmation.

Joining a community garden does not just provide fresh food and a great social network, but it also encourages us to eat more veggies and improves our neighbourhood environment. In a time where less and less children know where food comes from, becoming a part of a community garden will also help kids learn and connect with the food they eat.

If you are interested in getting your hands dirty at our Calleya Community Garden, please don't hesitate and send us an email to info@treebyca.com.au or message us at our TCA Facebook page.

Get your gloves on and see you in the garden!

It's R U OK?Day, our national day of action and a reminder to Trust the Signs, Trust your Gut & Ask R U OK? any day it's needed.

Today we're calling on Australia to learn when and how to start a conversation that could change a life.

It's time to ask R U OK? if you notice a change, no matter how small, in your friends, family and peers. Look for clues in:

✔️What they're saying
✔️What they're doing
✔️What's going on in their life

By acting as ‘eyes and ears’ and reaching out to anyone who's going through a tough time we can show them they’re supported and encourage them to access help sooner.

Learn the signs and how to ask and help us move closer to our vision of a world where we're all connected and protected from suicide: www.ruok.org.au

Treeby Community Association (TCA) committee member had been working hard to provide value and service to residents. This year we decided to connect with the community through the form of the classic newsletter in the hope to reach a wider audience and receive support in return.

In the newsletter we aim to re-introduce ourselves, keeping you posted with what is happening in your community, list out some upcoming events, our achievements in 2018/2019, and most important of all, your feedback. We want to hear your thoughts and idea on how TCA should move forward in 2020.

1200 newsletter copies were printed and schedules to be hand-delivered by the end of August. Please check your mailboxes for your copy. If we had missed you, we are very sorry! You can still read them online here.

We would love for you to become a member of TCA. You will not only supporting the association but also gain access to the community garden and let your voice be heard. Just $10/year you can make a difference and be a part of shaping the growth of Treeby!
