The new TES annexe was officially opened on Friday 29.11.2013.
Tulgeen staff and clients, friends and advocates gathered to celebrate the long awaited opening. Andrew Constance led the opening ceremony and gave a heart-warming speech about the wonderful services that Tulgeen have to offer to people with a disability. The red ribbon was cut by Andrew and he was assisted by clients Jacinta Robinson, Susan Harrison and Jennifer Russell. Chas Keyes and Kristina Walker were thanked for their years of support on the Tulgeen Board and given gifts of appreciation by the Tulgeen Board President Gae Rheinberger.
Pete Gorton, newly appointed CEO of Tulgeen thanked everyone for attending and spoke of Tulgeens vision for the future. Pete invited Betsy Hilton to join him in the cutting of the Tulgeen 30th anniversary cake. Betsy’s son Zeke spent many years attending TES and the new annexe has been dedicated in his memory. The new annexe is a result of many years of hard work to achieve the initial funding, assisting with the planning and building, jumping the hurdles as they presented themselves and finally fitting out the new area for clients activities to commence.
Thank you to all who were a part of that journey. Well done.
