Colac Otway Shire – Localised Launch

Business people from Apollo Bay, the Otways and Colac attended the breakfast and morning tea at COPACC on Tuesday 20 November to launch Localised .

Youth of the Year – Lions Club – Appreciation

We were so chuffed last month to receive a Certificate of Appreciation from the Lions Club for the coordination and catering of the Youth of the Year event at the Colac Central Hotel Motel. This was a big surprise to receive this but we were extremely grateful. Our function and catering teams work hard to ensure that every event runs smoothly, it was lovely to receive acknowledgement of this.
