We were excited to celebrate our 30th Anniversary with a large group of staff, clients, supporters and friends at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club last week.
With the Derbal Yerrigan providing a beautiful backdrop, our Chairperson Geoff Parnell talked about our establishment in 1992 by three Perth families, how we have responded to the many significant changes we have seen over the past 30 years, and how proud we are to have grown into a vibrant and impactful organisation supporting people with disability to live their best life.
Geoff also announced that the Board had selected Robert Martin to be a life member of Mosaic, only the third in our history, and presented him with a plaque. Rob has made a huge contribution to Mosaic’s journey, initially as our Inaugural President and also in his unwavering commitment to our Purpose. His brother Peter, who is still with Mosaic today, was our very first client
Pippa Cebis, our CEO, presented staff members Joseph Woja and Sue Peters with a special plaque to commemorate their 15 years of service.
Our special thanks go to our guest speaker for the evening Marion Hailes-MacDonald, the Executive Director – Office of Disability at the Department of Communities. Marion explained what the disability services landscape in WA was like in 1992, how it has changed since then, and what that has meant to those living with disability and their families.
We were pleased to present all our guests with a booklet that celebrates the people and milestones of our first 30 years and a gift to commemorate the occasion. You can download a copy of this here.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who has entrusted us with their hopes, goals and dreams over the last 30 years. It continues to be our great privilege to provide disability support services that give people and their families more choice, control and independence.
We can’t wait to see what the next 30 years brings!
