The Year of the Dragon Celebration Luncheon 2024 - NDIS

Tuesday, 27 February 2024

On 15 February 2024, approximately 100 NDIS participants, their family and carers, many adorned in traditional New Year attire, gathered for a luncheon celebrating the Year of the Dragon at a restaurant in Chatswood.

At 12:00 noon, to start the event, ACCA Service Manager Sharyn DiNatale, extended a warm welcome to all attendees. Despite her limited proficiency in Chinese, she endeavoured to convey Chinese New Year greetings using phonetic transcriptions. Her pronunciation brought bursts of laughter and joy to many of those present.

An assortment of traditional Chinese New Year dishes were served, elevating the occasion into an experience of culinary delight. The attendees exchanged New Year greetings whilst enjoying the cuisine. A lucky draw was held at the end of the event, adding festive joy and delight to the occasion.

The event received overwhelming positive feedback, with attendees requesting ACCA to host more of such events in the future.

Special acknowledgment goes to the NDIS team for their efforts in organizing the successful celebration.

As we enter the Year of the Dragon, ACCA conveys our sincerest wishes for a joyful and prosperous Chinese New Year to all members of the community.
