Drink tea for diabetes!

CIRS diabetes morning teaA diabetes awareness charity morning tea with a guest speaker will be held at the Rainbow Beach Community Centre on November 21, open invitation to all. This is an opportunity to participate in discussion on this important issue which impacts on so many in today’s world. A gold coin donation is requested, with all proceeds to go to diabetes research.

The trash and treasure event last month attracted many and varied sellers, buyers and onlookers with a good time had by all. Another is planned for December 9, so time to start planning, maybe even some Christmas opportunities with that one.

The Centre will participate in the Who’s New at the Zoo event at Lawrie Hanson park on November 4, providing general and resource information to residents new, existing and potential, about the community. A great opportunity to build and reinforce community spirit.

A major happening is coming up on December 10 with the Festival of Small Halls – contact Brooke at Bbignell7@gmail.com or www.festivalofsmallhalls.com

Some in the community are interested in developing table tennis activity in the Centre and are canvassing participation interest from residents. Table tennis is a sport for all ages and skills and, because it is played indoors, has the benefit of being an all-weather activity. If interested, add your name to the list at the Centre so the committee can further consider the proposal at its next meeting.

Remember, the Community Centre is open to the public five-and-a-half days a week, providing resource information on a range of issues including training and accreditation opportunities, internet access, a large range of pre-read books, and photocopy and print services.

It is available for public and private functions, large and small, at reasonable rates. Contact the Centre on 5486 3355.

The committee next meets on November 14.
