This has been a very interesting year for the Centre and a new committee has just been voted in.
The Rainbow Beach Community Centre was created twenty years ago. Run by volunteers, the committee’s role is to create a better lifestyle for the community of Rainbow Beach by providing information and advice.
The Centre is also the manager of the facilities and building, with the exclusion of the library. The management of the building brings duties and legal responsibilities along with the opportunity to develop a communitarian space.
To be able to consistently keep the doors of the Centre open and organise events more volunteers are needed. We are calling on locals to join and give a couple of hours weekly to help with reception, while learning new skills.
New President, Elisa Seul, who is passionate about bringing the community together and bringing people to the Centre said: “We want volunteers to enjoy the time spent at the Centre and feel valued. Every one of us has something special to offer.”
Events coming up at the hall to mark in your diaries:
November 23, 2019 – Markets
November 28 2019 – Festival Small Halls;
December 15, 2019 – Santa Comes to Rainbow

The new committee also welcomes inputs and ideas for the Fortnightly Markets. The vendor that used to coordinate them on the second and fourth Saturday of the month has moved from the area.
To become a member of the Rainbow Beach Community Centre, membership is only $5, and the membership will remain valid for all of 2020.
