News & Events

Yackandandah Health would like to thank everyone that made our recent celebration possible and all those who supported the event.

Firstly, to JWP Architects for the design of our new building and to Joss Constructions and their team of trades people for delivering such a stunning home for future residents. Also, to Dr Jane Barratt, Secretary General of the International Federation on Ageing (Canada), who officially opened the building. Tours of the new building ran all day and were a popular attraction. Thanks to our staff who volunteered to run the tours and explain the key features.

The Community Celebration would not have been the success it was without the voluntary involvement of so many community groups. We would like to thank all those from community groups for agreeing to offer an activity, stall or support us in some other way. It meant there really was something for every age-group and lots of interaction between people of all ages. It delivered on the aim of having our community interacting on the site, re-inforced what community ownership means and demonstrated the generosity and spirit in our town.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped prepare, set-up and pack-up on the day – it was a big contribution.
We would also like to thank our celebrity guests – Jackie French, Costa Georgiadis, Pete Denahy, Elk and Society Sisters. You will agree they had lots of energy and added to the enjoyment of the day.

Finally, we would like to thank our sponsors for their support; WAW Credit Union, Joss Constructions, YCD Co and Indigo Shire Council.
We are reviewing the event and considering when we might hold it again. If you have any feedback, please email
