On 15 May mecwacare hosted the official opening of the mecwacare John Atchison Centre in Hoppers Crossing. President of the Senate, Senator the Hon. Scott Ryan unveiled the plaque to commemorate the event and open the centre, while our Vice-Chairman John Atchison received the honour in a ceremony before special guests, staff and residents.
This celebration was an opportunity to highlight all that we have achieved since the commencement of the development program 12 months ago, transforming an a closed retirement business into a beautiful new home for the residents. Guests received tours throughout our newest residential centre and listened to a string quartet as they enjoyed morning tea with residents. John has been on the mecwacare Board for 28 years, and here was an occasion to honour his outstanding contribution to the people in our care.
