Playgroup's committee consists of two official
roles -- chairperson and treasurer.
The group is seeking more people to help with
opening and closing playgroup days.
"We are hoping to attract people who could
commit to being on the committee to help out,"
Mrs Collins said. "The more people we have, the
less work that needs to be done, and with more
people helping we could do many more activities
with the kids."
For more information about Waikerie Playgroup,
including how to volunteer, contact Karen Collins
on 8540 7068.
WAIKERIE Playgroup co-ordinator Karen Collins (left, pictured with daughter Chloe, 3) is concerned that
without more volunteers the group will fold. Recent playgroup attendees included (from left) Cherrie and
Grace Newsham, Michelle and Jarrod Gogoll, Oscar Hill and Rachel Gursansky. PHOTO: Jayme Koch
