Such a fantastic weekend was had with our wonderful Western Australian families at our retreat on the 30-31st March. It was so fantastic to see so many new faces. A record for the most adults (once again) at any retreat to date and also most partners/spouses (ever) right by their side. And first prize goes to the number of grandparents joining in on the fun and taking the initiative to educate themselves better for the benefit of their children and grandchildren – so heartwarming and inspiring to see. The low pro catering done by a handful of dedicated volunteers and MDDA office was second to none and a real highlight of the weekend so a special shout out and huge thank you to those helpers. Recipes from the weekend can be found under our recipes section. Thanks also to our wonderful Volunteer Executive Committee – the hours and enthusiasm you give is what makes these events so successful. It was also wonderful to have the support from WA Metabolic Clinics and dietitians. And lastly, for everyone else for making our efforts and hard work all so worthwhile, we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for the WA local community going forward, with so many great new friendships and new connections being made. A full write up from the retreat and pictures will be in our next MDDA Matters newsletter.
