The Salvation Army Recovery Centre (Moonyah) at Red Hill aims to bring hope, healing and wholeness to all people adversely affected by alcohol, other drugs and gambling by providing a range of services and support to addicts, families and significant others whose lives have been affected by addiction.
Each festive season, The Centre brings even more light and hope to program participants and the local community with a stunning Christmas lights display. More than 35 000 lights ablaze the main administration building at Moonyah bringing colour and joy to the community of Red Hill. Visiting the lightshow has been a tradition in our household for several years and this year was no different.
The winding driveway of Moonyah is perfect for taking time to meander through the featured "rooms" and being overtaken by the twinkling trees and gardens of the grounds. This year's display includes a nativity scene, light-filled reindeer and an adorable collection of Santa's busy and cheeky elves climbing up a ladder to reach a tree-house. The display shines brightly along suburban Glenrosa Road with several other homes in the street also joining in and illuminating their homes with colour.
The light are switched on each night during the Christmas season. As well, the Centre opens its doors and hosts Christmas Carols and a street party on 20 December 2017 where Glenrosa Road is closed. The celebration includes a sausage sizzle, drinks and a visit from Santa for the kids.
