Mornington SCI Regional Network Meeting - June 2018
The Mornington SCI Regional Network held its June meeting at the Steeples Mornington in Mornington Peninsula. It was a robust turnout, with 6 new faces coming along! It is anticipated that the number of people attending will increase as more people become aware of the network.
The meeting started with introductions of new members and quickly moved to discussions about NDIS, travel, modifications, vehicles and lifestyle. One of the attendees, who were unsure if he was on the NDIS, was urged to attend one of AQA’s NDIS workshops to learn more. The group also learned about Spire and many signed up to the newsletter subscription service for more information on spinal related issues. Steeples have a great menu which covers many options and price ranges. The discussion continued during and after lunch.
A couple of the group members were looking forward to speaking to the member from last month’s meeting, for more details about his 3 month cruise that he took a few months back. Unfortunately he was unable to attend this month’s meeting, however the discussion continued with people talking about other people they knew who took cruises.
Another topic that was popular was volunteering. Some members of the group remembered Spire sending out an email a few months ago regarding a local radio station looking for a volunteer. The radio station would provide full training in media and presentation. It looks like the radio station will have a couple of new volunteers!
All in all, everyone had fun, learned new things, and are looking forward to meeting again next month.
