The Independent Living Centre travelled to Mingenew in September to attend the 33rd Mingenew Lions Midwest Expo.
The Mingenew Lions Midwest Expo is the largest two day agricultural machinery field day in the Midwest region of WA. The annual event attracts visitors from the Midwest and throughout WA, who come to see displays from over 380 businesses. The event showcases not only the latest innovations in agricultural and farming industries, but also a range of products and services beneficial to the broader community.
The Independent Living Centre has been attending the Mingenew Expo for several years. It has proved a highly worthwhile event, with hundreds of people stopping by the display each day to see the range of equipment on display, receive advice on assistive technology solutions and learn about the services provided by Independent Living Centre.
This year the ILC display was located in the Family Interest Marquee and we were lucky enough to receive the Best Family Interest Display Award http://www.mingenewexpo.com.au/competitions-best-site-awards
Thank-you to the Mingenew Expo committee and award sponsors the Countryman newspaper for this recognition.
The ILC truly enjoys attending community events such as the Mingenew Expo. It enables us to connect with individuals, carers, families and friends of people who can benefit from our services.
The Mingenew Expo is scheduled for the 15th and 17th September 2016. Further details can be found at www.mingenewexpo.com.au
We look forward to seeing you there!
