Calvary reaching out to rural folk
Bony at AGFEST

Amid the tractors and farm tools, Calvary Health Care Tasmania was found at AGFEST this year in a combined tent with Capital Chemist.

As is their tradition, their skeleton joined them and Mrs Mary Hutton of Launceston won a beautiful hamper donated by the Hill Street Grocer for giving the skeleton the name 'Bony' for the day.

There were 785 entries for the competition and Calvary handed out 1224 show bags.

Although the weather was poor on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday remained dry and this was reflected by the number of people who called in to say hello and tell their story about Calvary as well as availing themselves of the free blood pressure testing being offered by Capital Chemist.

Calvary Health Care runs St Luke’s and St Vincent’s in Launceston and Calvary and St John’s in Hobart. The Catholic ethos is evident in excellent pastoral care continuing the tradition of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary.
