Free Support Workshop
Space, Mona Vale is helping support those with Lyme Disease
Are you suffering with Lyme Disease, know someone who is, or think you
might have it? Did you know that Lyme Disease is being predicted as the
epidemic of the 21st century? Although at this time, the Australian
Government does NOT recognise Lyme Disease in Australia there are many
people working hard to change this.
Health Space, supported by the Karl McManus Foundation and LDAA (Lyme
Disease Association of Australia) are working hard behind the scenes to
get recognition for Lyme Disease on a global level but are also wanting
to help bring awareness to the Northern Beaches community and provide
support and help for those who are suffering from Lyme Disease.
This Saturday will be showing how KINESIOLOGY can support you in your
journey to healing Lyme Disease or any long-standing illness.

An Offshore Community
The Scotland Island Kindy had another of its fabulous and entertaining
“Trivia Nights” and the support and camaraderie from our community is
certainly a highlight of why we all choose to live in this amazing
This year, not only were we fund-raising for our beautiful kindergarten
that many of us have had our own children nurtured in, but we also
supported a young lad “Max” who was recently diagnosed with a rare form
of Bone Cancer that is effecting the use of his legs. This goes with
his other diagnosis of Aspergers (high functioning Autism). What is
remarkable about this story is that Max is not from around here, but it
made no difference to us! I child in need is a child in need and
everyone dug deep to help this sweet boy and that evening we all
understood that he had already undergone 4 major operations, with more
to come and the little guy was just getting on with it. Bravery is too
small a word for a child like Max.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Tanya – Max’s mum (who worked to
help our Kindy retain its accreditation), and it is not often how much
we really get to realise what we have contributed to and achieved as a
community of giving, loving people. Our support will buy him a
wheelchair, a necessity for him now to get around and be mobile, but it
is so much more than that. Our care for others lives and our support of
them when they are in desperate need has no price. The emotional
support felt by the family will never be forgotten nor diminished. They
know they are not alone and I would like to express gratitude on behalf
of the family to those that helped, donated, purchased and simply
turned up to have fun and enjoy themselves. We are truly creators of
great change through goodwill and kindness and we rippled it out that
night all the way to Lane Cove! This shows we can never underestimate
our power to help the lives of others.
We raised a fabulous $1100 for our Kindy and an awesome $1700 for Max.
Tanya, Paul and her boys Nick, Jack and Max were overwhelmed and give
you all a monster THANKYOU. If you missed the Kindy trivia night and
want to help Tanya’s family, you can do this online through my website
www.intellectualdisability.org with a note to me at
email@example.com saying the donation is for Max and I will pass it
on to the family via Liz (our Kindy director)

THINGS – WHAT’S ON YOUR LIST?
Pittwater Council is hosting the next Pittwater Business Breakfast with
top-selling author, motivator and adventurer Sebastian Terry.
The breakfast, hosted by
Pittwater Business Limited, is on Wednesday 19 June at Bayview Golf
Club between 7am and 8.45am.
Sebastian Terry will reveal his insights on today’s complex business
world for goal setting, resilience, perspective and personal
Sebastian suggests that everyone has at least one thing they have to do
before they die – some even have a list. But how many goals and dreams
on this list are actually achieved?
Affected by the death of a close friend in 2004, Sydney-born Sebastian
experienced a moment in his life where he asked himself a simple
question; ‘Am I happy?’ The answer was NO and so he decided to write
down a list of 100 things that he’d always wanted to achieve.
He then decided to prioritise this list in his life and now some three
years on, his life has changed. With 60 items down and over $90,000
raised for Camp Quality, the pursuing journey has not only fulfilled
him he says, but the lives of people all over the world.
Council’s Economic Development Coordinator Paul William-Smith said
Sebastian will draw on stories and reflections from his inspirational
book ‘100 Things’, discussing issues that are on the minds of people
and relating them to today’s complex business world.
“Along with addressing the issues of goal-setting and resilience he
will also consider the positivity that emerges from adversity and the
wonder of stepping out of one’s comfort zone,” said Mr William-Smith.
“The breakfast will also feature Pittwater Council’s Community, Library
& Economic Development Manager Lindsay Godfrey who will share
Council’s vision on the future of Pittwater’s village economies.”
Bayview Golf Club is located at 1825 Pittwater Road.
