I was delighted to be invited to the launch of this wonderful guide, of which I have several copies if you would like one. They are also available at the Council, online as a Word or PDF document. Here is the link to that page for downloading. While the laughter club is not in it, it will be added in future and was overlooked, because it was comprised of the Seniors Festival Booklet, which we were in. It is a very high quality book of 151 A4 pages and will no doubt be a ‘lifesaver’ for many who need to look something up. I acknowledge and thank Peter Johnston who was responsible for this Guide and is vary helpful to me in promoting Laughter Yoga and the Ferntree Gully Laughter Club.
Much of the focus of my laughter work is with the disabled, aged and their carers, besides schools and not-for-profit organisations. I do enjoy being involved in the community and laughter helps make this happen!
