Administration Officer, Terry Murphy; Easter Collection Convenor, Graham Langdown; Deputy Flotilla Commander, Phil Feldman, and Commander, John Van der Heijde, look forward to their Easter Roadside Fundraising Drive
When Easter is here remember to be generous to our Coastguard.
Every year at this time, they are rostered from daylight until dark at two collection points around the area.
Look out for them on the corner of Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay Roads and east of Tin Can Bay School on Tin Can Bay Road, near Salmon Street.
Last year they raised $11,000 – it is by far their largest income revenue.
This is the biggest single event. The money is absorbed by their annual operation expenses of $200,000. Government funding only contributes to ten percent, the rest is for us to raise.
Register your interest for public courses on boating safety, bar crossings, radio operators program or first aid and resuscitation.
There’s also an official resurvey of the bar occurring right now – so look out for adjustments to the bar protocol.
