"Hi Julie I would just like to thankyou for the Food Safety Course that I attended yesterday at the Greensborough RSL. I have completed many training courses over the years with Government positions and other employment positions I have held. I would just like to acknowledge how refreshing it was to have the course run by Michele, not only was it relaxed but very enjoyable. Jan '15"
