Puffing Billy, Running Rabbit Military Museum 

& The Upwey Men's Shed: Getting Involved for Better Health 

Thursday 1st February, 12pm,

We invite you to a luncheon with some amazing guest speakers:

Puffing Billy Volunteers talk about "Life at Puffing Billy."
What they do and how it benefits not only Puffing Billy but also themselves. 

The Upwey Men Shed, Supporting the community.
Who they are. What they do. How to get involved.
The ripple effect of better health and wellbeing.

Running Rabbit Military Museum
The only accredited RSL museum in Victoria. 
A troop of volunteers, with the almighty tasks of collating, researching, repairing, and preparing items for display.
Sharing the stories they hear about the items that are donated and collected.
The pride they feel when the public are wowed and excited during the museum tour.
Being part of a team, educating our military history to young and old.

Science shows that connection with others, and the act of giving and helping other is exceptionally good for your health and wellbeing.
Keeping the mind and body busy, and getting involved with local clubs or volunteering for local not-for-profit organizations is an amazing way to support mental and physical health.

Please join us for this informative and interactive event.
