Current management committee: Secretary – Marnie Kropp, President – Elisa Seul, and Treasurer – Kelly Smith at the recent Christmas Lunch for our active volunteers
2021 was a very successful year for the Rainbow Beach Community Centre.
We started the year with only three volunteers rotating to keep the office open, and finished the year with seven rostered volunteers.
The monthly markets are constantly growing and are very popular. We have launched the Rainbow Beach Spring Fest, hosted the Festival of Small Halls for the fifth year, Santa Comes to Rainbow third edition, hosted the Live & Local Music project and of course the Friday Catch Ups have been a wonderful resilient ongoing rendez-vous.
The Committee has worked passionately to create and coordinate more events for people of all ages, this came after the collection of community feedback through the survey we did in early 2020. A few members have also undertaken training on procedures on how to stand up in case of a declared natural disaster as the hall is classified as an Evacuation Centre for the area.
The Rainbow Beach Community Centre has an enormous potential to be the hub for all residents and locals – the Association not only facilitates the access to the building, it also encourages community participation and inclusion through activities offered at the Centre and by linking community members to resources and support.
We aim to grow, become stronger and more representative of the wider community needs to preserve wellbeing and belonging. Memberships are now open for 2022, the support of each of you means a lot to the Association, it still costs only $5. Let us know you care about the Community too.
