PAST SOLDIER ON EVENTS AND PROGRAMS
Last Wednesday Soldier On hosted it’s first and very successful Spouses Morning Tea! We had 22 adults, only 6 of who had been involved with Soldier On before, and 8 children attended the morning tea.
The event allowed spouses to come together and chat about their shared experience in a relaxed environment. Two topics they have discussed in detail were employment and education opportunities, which Soldier On staff were only happy to assist with.
We look forward to hosting more Spouses Morning Teas in the future. For more information about upcoming events head to Soldier On Calendar
