The Rainbow Beach Friday community catch up began during Covid to offer books to locals as they weren’t able to access books from the library.
Then the committee invited Brooke and her coffee van, then Martine came with cakes and the word spread to Kelly, Sarah, Roberta, Tina and Aido and it became legend.
The Friday ‘must do’ event boosted the committee’s enthusiasm and energy and, although Rose and Maree didn’t sleep much, it just got better.
Over summer the community centre is completely changing the Friday gatherings to better suit the hot season.
From November till February the day will start at 8.30am and run until 11am.
Locals and visitors are invited to enjoy Devonshire tea, kids activities, table games, healthy advice and wellbeing updates.
The focus remains on creating opportunities to build a stronger community, a place to interact, share experiences and support one another.
President Elisa Seul said: “We are excited to also share with you all that we won the category “Wedding Venue – Community Hall 2020 Brides Choice Awards” for both Sunshine Coast and Fraser Coast.
“We thank Rainbow Beach Weddings, Sunshine Weddings and Rainbow Beach Wedding Photography for the support.
Remember, the community centre is open to the public four and a half days a week, providing resource information on a range of issues including volunteering opportunities, internet access, a large range of pre-read books, and photocopy and print services.
The hall is available for public and private functions, large and small, at reasonable rates. Contact the Centre on 5486 3355.
