Grassroots Speaker Series - August 2022

Following the success of our Grassroots day in April this year we're pleased to announce we’ll be doing it all again on Saturday 20th August.  The day will follow the same format as April with three amazing and inspirational local speakers sharing their stories, their struggles and the tools they use to manage what life throws at them.  Our three speakers are locked in so save the date and come along and listen to three people, all towers of strength within our community in their own rights as they strive to pass on hope and positivity through their stories and experiences that will provide ongoing benefits for all that attend.

The MC for the day will be Korrin Barrett, a legend in her own right and one of the great members and supporters of the STAROS family.

Date:  Saturday 20th August

Time:  10:00am – 2:30pm

Venue:  212 Queen St East, Hastings

Cost:  Free or koha

Speakers:            Wayne Forrest

                              Theresa Whiting

The Aftermath

We are so blessed and fortunate to have access to amazing people in our community who are willing to share their stories and tools so that others may benefit and today reinforced that.  Wayne, Theresa and Ngaro captured all in the room as they took us through their respective journeys, how they managed each bump in the road and what they used that helped them do this, thank you to you all, it was truly an inspiring day.

Today was our second day in the Grassroots Speaker Series for 2022 and plans are already underway for another one before the end of the year so watch out for details of this in the coming months.  STAROS believes in giving people opportunities, with opportunity comes choice and we hope you make the choice to come to the next one, you won't be disappointed.
