Dear Can Assist Community,

I hope you all get as much enjoyment and happiness in looking through this issue of Branching Out as I have. It covers everything from several of our volunteers being recognised for their steadfast commitment and service to community, to the many fundraising events and generous donations. So many lovely photos.

Dear Can Assist Community,

Wishing you, our Can Assist community, a lovely safe and Merry Christmas.

This edition of Branching Out concludes yet another busy year for our Can Assist network and the following pages are a fitting tribute to the hard work and enthusiasm of all our branch executives, members, volunteers and supporters.
