The Victoria Cool Aid Society is celebrating 50 years of community service, and is inviting the public to its 50th annual general meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, June 27.

The AGM is an opportunity for the public to get an update on the society’s work over the last year.

The Cool Aid Society works to address issues of homelessness and poverty in Victoria, and has been doing so since it opened its doors in 1968.

“The AGM is quite routine from a business point of view,” says Alan Rycroft, Community Relations Manager. “The focus of this AGM will be on our 50-year history of service in Victoria with speeches reflecting that theme.”

However, there will be some surprises.

“What is going to be really fun is when we open up the floor to hear the stories of our guests—including many old timers and even some founders,” Rycroft says. “That’s where the surprises will come.”

The society recently hosted a Homecoming 50th Anniversary Gala, in which guests were treated to an evening of luxury at Ship Point, all to fundraise money for the society’s operations.
