President's Message: May 2021

A Melbourne Autumn is really something to behold, and I hope you have had the opportunity to enjoy this! We’re off to a quick start in May.  Our Doncaster Hill Market was held on Sunday May 2 and it was the cover story featured on the newly launched Manningham Life community magazine. The magazine was distributed to 20,000 households in Manningham, and this helped to draw quite a number of new visitors to the market. If you would like to read the cover story on the market, you can view the online version here.
