Hester Newsletter 28 September
- ONE EYED CATS
Up to 14 residents came together socially last Saturday, and in true
footy community spirit they got behind the AFL Grand Final and watched
Geelong run all over the Sydney Swans on the Cinemas’ big screen.
- HOW WELL DO YOU KNOW YOUR COMMUNITY?
Everyone loves a little mystery and imagine they know all about the
people they live with, but let’s put that to the test!
Please submit to me something about yourself that most people would
not know, be it a couple of words or a paragraph, and each week we’ll
publish the ‘Mystery Insight’ totally anonymous. Frustrating for some, a challenge for others.
- DEFINITELY LOST & POSSIBLY FOUND
Could you please be on the lookout for a Room Key and Swipe Card
misplaced somewhere around Hester Canterbury. If you find them or
any other item absent of an owner, please drop them off at the Office or
place in the Managers’ mailbox. Thanks.
Week One of the Spring Menu starts on Monday 3 October.
Please place any orders by 1pm the Thursday before.
PRISONER TO PHD
A morning with Guest Author Kerry Tucker
Wednesday 12 October at 10am (Hester Canterbury Cinema)
Hester Canterbury’s stunning library is yearning for a new book, and I feel Kerry Tuckers’ remarkable story of how you can rebuild your life from the ruins is true testament of a worthy addition. Please join Kerry live to hear her amazing story behind the book ‘The Prisoner’ first hand.
After spending nearly five years in Victoria’s Maximum Security prison for women for the white-collar crime of stealing from her employer, Kerry was released with her Master of Arts (completed entirely in prison) and was successful in her Candidature for her Doctorate of which she completed in late 2014.
Since her release, Kerry has successfully become a Swinburne University lecturer, accomplished author, highly sought-after motivational speaker and ambassador for the charity Wear For Success. She is a passionate advocate for educating women in prison and was appointed to the Victorian Government’s Women’s Correctional Services Advisory Committee. Her incredible story from total despair to unthinkable personal achievement was encapsulated in an episode of ABC television’s ‘Australian Story’.
If you would like to attend, please place your name on the form at Reception by close of business Tuesday 4 October. The cost will be $12 per person, (charged to your monthly account) followed by the normal Hester Canterbury morning tea.
