Most people are defined by their employment, yet this weekend showcased the passions and volunteering people dedicated themselves to in their spare time at Pakenham’s Live Life Expo.

Hosted by Lakeside Residents Group, it was held on Sunday 7 July at the Cardinia Cultural Centre.

The expo was dedicated to the variety of hobbies, lifestyles and volunteering the many people throughout Cardinia engage in.

No personal creation was locked away, but on full display for all to appreciate and connect with.

Attendees could engage with passionate people in cycling, quilting, lego, music, scouting and much more.

“We were really thrilled for our inaugural expo, it was filled with people,” Lakeside Residents Group president Wendy Andrews said.

“Everyone could see all sorts of things they could do, there were many interactions and networking, making connections.”

A success for a first time event, the group is keen to make it an annual staple that inspires more people to get involved with the community.

“It was to bring groups together in one place to come and talk to find out what they can do in the community, we had them all in one place for people to join up,” Andrews said.

“We got a really good vibe from it, the whole atmosphere was really positive.”
