25th July - Our Annual Nonagenarian High Tea

Last Wednesday (July 25th) Hobart Legacy's Annual Nonagenarian High Tea was held at Drysdale House.

Forty fabulous ladies, all nonagenarians, attended and enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea prepared and served by Drysdale students.

Special thanks must go to Katinka at Lily & Dot who so generously donated three beautiful crochet rugs for us to have as lucky door prizes on the day. This gift was handmade, square by square by many Hobart hands (customers and friends of Lily and Dot) and will be treasured by the ladies who were lucky enough to take one home with them.

25th February - Festa Italia clean-up squad cleans up

On Sunday from 11 am - 4:30 pm Federal Street came alive with all things Italian - pizza, pasta, wine, sweets, displays and the famous spaghetti-eating competition.

Amid the largest crowd ever, the Legacy clean-up squad quietly kept the venue spick and span.

Thanks to Legatees Kathryn Edwards, Annette Ottway, Paul Crew, Bill Bouffler, Peter Bysouth, Alec Young, Rob Noga and Peter Hodge together with Friends of Hobart Legacy Kencie Woodward, Alex Crellin, Margaret Young and Leigh Ottway for a great fund raising effort.

12th February – All At Sea With HMAS Hobart… It makes cents!

Hobart Legacy kicked off fund raising this year on Princes No 1 Wharf hosted by HMAS Hobart.

We received outstanding support from the Captain and crew of HMAS Hobart and the Senior Naval Officer Tasmania CMDR Bob Curtis. Many a young Tasmanian took away a Legacy bookmark and as usual our community gave generously.
