Simply the best at the new Simon Price Centre

The official opening of the new Simon Price Centre in Mont Albert North took place on Tuesday, December 5, with residents, staff and special guests in attendance.

CEO Anne McCormack presented a speech with a history of the site, before Chair of mecwacare’s Board of Directors, Ian McHutchison OAM, offered some background about the centre’s namesake, the late Mr Simon Price OAM. Ian then invited former Board Member and now Life Governor John Atchison to cut the ceremonial opening ribbon together.

Guests in attendance included Simon and Jane Price’s three daughters, Jodie, Jenny and Julie, Whitehorse City Councillor Amanda McNeill, and various industry professionals, and many of the centre’s residents. Pat Penetta from radio station 3AW also did a number of live crosses from the event.

Guests were treated to a tour of the facility before enjoying a morning tea prepared by the centre’s chef Jin and his kitchen team.

The event was a delightful, exciting day for all in attendance. It was a wonderful tribute to Simon and Jane Price, and a celebration of all the hard work undertaken to create the facility.
