At 2pm we will make a special presentation, including words from Selwyn MP Amy Adams, and Selwyn District Council Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall. We will conclude with a cake-cutting by Dr Gerald Irwin, who was instrumental in the creation of Community Care Lincoln and Districts. Dr Irwin was Chair of the Board in 1978– 1979, Medical Centre Representative from 1980 to 1982, and board member from 1982 to 2000. Dr Irwin returned in 2004, and was awarded life membership in 2005.
Community Care Lincoln and Districts is very grateful for the time and energy that Dr Gerald Irwin has devoted to the well being of his community. Local community service providers, including Nurse Maude, Pegasus Health and the Canterbury District Health Board will present informative displays, aiming to make people aware of the many and varied services available.
Rotary Lincoln will have a display promoting their services, and sharing their involvement and generous support throughout the inception and history of Community Care Lincoln and Districts.
On Open Day, our building will be open to the public, so that you can see the hub from which your community services are operated. Please join us on Sunday 24th March to find out about what we have done within the community, learn more of the services we oﬀer, and to help us celebrate our 40 years of service in the Lincoln area.
