David and Sarah put finishing touches to painting the Tin Can Bay RSL

The Tin Can Bay RSL looks great after a recent paint job undertaken by contractors, First Response Maintenance Solutions, for the Gympie Regional Council.

The maintenance of the RSL is the joint responsibility of the Gympie Regional Council and the Tin Can Bay RSL Sub Branch, by agreement, with the council responsible for external building maintenance and the RSL responsible for the internal maintenance.

As RSL President Don Holland said, “The RSL facility is one of the social hubs of Tin Can Bay.  Hundreds of locals and visitors use the facility for a range of events every month including the Saturday Markets, Saturday lunches, Sunday BBQs, veterans and community morning teas, dance lessons and training courses.

“We’re proud to see the RSL looking so good after being newly painted in heritage colours.”

The professionalism of the contractors was apparent during a recent inspection of the work. David Weissman has been a professional painter for 24 years and takes great pride in the quality of his work.

David said, “I got my love for painting from my father Bernie. ”He worked on the Snowy Mountains Scheme when he first came to Australia and has been a professional painter ever since.”

Sarah Conrad is a painter’s assistant and has only been working with the contractors for three months. Sarah said, “I love this job and really enjoy this particular contract travelling to country towns working on the RSL in Tin Can Bay and other public facilities in Wolvi, Kandanga and Kandanga Creek.”

Well, we love your work David and Sarah – it really looks great!
